Pick Gausman. Drop??? * WHIR *

Postby Seanyfever » Sun May 26, 2013 12:57 am

I've been rubbing my fingers debating on Gausman, but yet to pull trigger. I had a partial path to him on waiver today but pulled a trigger to get Josh Johnson for a potential down the line difference maker.

You see a way to go?????
I have Rutledge who was sent down... Didn't see it coming, and not feeling the urge to dump him... Thinking he'll be back. Profar. I'd like to wait out. Any moves to get Gausman???

I just find it amazing that the Rockies found a way to downgrade at manager.I thought it would be impossible.

I'd probably drop Rutledge. Profar will be nice to have until 2015. Rutledge's demotion was unexpected but I doubt anyone grabs him right now considering you were able to grab Profar and Gausman is still unowned.

go ahead and drop rutledge. he needs to improve his defense in the minors before they bring him back up. who knows how long it will take until the Rox are comfortable with him manning the keystone position. Moreover, you have Gyorko to hold it down

The only person I'd consider dropping would be Estrada. I'd hold on to Rutledge with it being a keeper league, and I think he'll be called back up in a couple of weeks to a month. If I was in a keeper league, I'd really want Gausman, but it's really hard seeing a way for you to get him.

drop Rutledge. You have plenty of other 2b, between Carpenter, Profar, and Gyorko.

Drop Rutledge. He's not a keeper and he's not in the majors. Gausman could be a keeper and he's playing right now.
