Commissioner Corner Message Board
Hey everyone, I need some more position players...only have 2 on the BN....which pitcher would you drop? Here is my team:
SS- Hanley Ram
OF- Beltran, Ludwick, Hunter, Hawpe
BN- Bartlett, Fowler
SP- Haren, Volquez, Burnett, Meche, Wandy Rodriguez, Danks, Ervin Santana (DL) David Price (NA)
RP- Soria, Francisco, Rodney, Hoffman, Ziegler
What do you guys think....here are the top 5 ranked FA:
Branyon, Asdrubal Cabrera, Blalock, Spilborghs, Freddy Sanchez
I'll tell you why Hoffman buddy. He'll break down within another month. Dudes older than the dirt on the mound, and it's not a "good" old! When he starts blowing saves it'll come in bunches. Like runs against Wakefield...lol. The only way he'll last is if they only use him once a week, rarely twice, and NEVER back to back anymore. Doesn't seem like it would be worth it to waste a roster spot like that.

hmmm, interesting. very interesting...and something to consider.
if i could make a trade and clear a roster spot in a 2 for 1, and/or drop and just add some position players that would be awesome.
definitely not spillborghs... you have enough outfielders. You do have quite a few relievers, but they could be used to sweeten a trade instead of just dropping them, as someone in your league def needs relief.
As for dropping, i'd say possibly danks, but every pitcher there is pretty solid (wandy and meche being the other two weakest, but not worth dropping)
maybe you'd be better off trying to trade a guy like zimmerman along with a reliever for a better 3b..?
out of those guys to pick up, branyan has two posistion eligibility, so if he's just gonna ride the bench he might be the most effective pickup...
but blalock could put up some SERIOUS power numbers, hitting 5th in that nasty rangers lineup. Sanchez will bat freaking 330 this year, but you look like you have a decent ba team anyway. and having spilboroghs and fowler on the same fantasy team might just be frustrating, as one will start instead of the other for time to time.

ya, i mean, the problem with this league is the fact that trading seems to be IMPOSSIBLE...it drives me crazy. I could try trading but we shall see. To drop I was thinking Ziegler or Rodney probably but Rodney seems to be picking up saves a lot more...I mean my team this week had 9 SVs.
I know Branyon is solid...but, I have Youk, Zimmerman, and Votto with Youk able to play 1b/3b...I have trades out there already for Zimmerman but like I said...no one bites on trades. OF i have a decent bit of. I was thinking of picking up Sanchez because he is solid but since i have Utley, I would only play him when Utley isnt. Blalock i know is solid and feel like i should grab him but, the same thing applies with Branyon...just dont know when i would play him with Votto, Youk, and Zimmerman.
