Sure, drop Livan for him. I wouldn't drop Santana - you have to have someone worse, such as Livan.

Whoever you drop make sure you get him. He is quickly becoming a fantast stud and should be picked up until he proves otherwise.

Willis is too good to leave on the wire. If you must drop Lily, you must.

Get him, get him, get him!!! In his last start vs. Oakland he threw seven shutout innings! That's Oakland we're talking about. I have him on my team too!

Here's my problem:

I picked him of the FA list just in time... (dropped Fossum), but someone cut Percival for some reason. I need him; my closers suck. What do I do? My bench is short, and all my pitchers are damn good.

RJ
Pedro
Hudson
Prior
K. Brown
Meche
Myers
Willis

Rivera
Izzy

I'd take Percival over Carter in a heartbeat. For what it's worth, I think there's a possibility that Colome may get a shot at some saves later on in TB, reducing Carter's worth even more.

Yeah, I would too, but if Izzy doesn't come back (or not the same) and I dump Carter, that would leave me with just Percy and Rivera ... so I'd be in trouble. That's why Willis seems the best option to dump.

I'm trying to trade Kevin Brown for Smoltz, though.

Gotta take risks in fantasy. I would drop Carter and hope for the best with Izzie.

Willis will be picked up the seond you drop him. Have you seen this guy pitch? He's one of those, "Oh my God, he's got good stuff!!!" type pitchers.

Sure, he'll probably cool down, but I would start him every time until he does.

Carter pitches for the Rays. Even if he stays closer, it's not like he's going to win you the championship or cost you the championship. You can find someone similar on the wire. Drop him.
