Time to give up on Zobrist???

Postby garretterik » Wed Jun 06, 2012 3:04 pm

Zobrist is putting up numbers easily worthy of being kept, but not the batting average. It will come around though, so don't fret.

I would keep Zobrist, drop Thayer for Paulino (till he cools off... we still don't know when Bauer is coming up).

If Scott Downs loses that job completely to Frieri (who appears to have a stranglehold on the job) I would drop HIM for Bauer.

Help with mine?

Without seeing your league standings it's hard to say, but I'd drop Zobrist for a bag of 5 year old Fritos.The AVG is a killer,can't have balanced roster with him on it.Zobrist is a never again repeatable mistake.Don't look back,ever.
