Lopez has been cooling down for a while now. I do wonder if this has anything to do w/ his hand injury from a month or so ago -- he said he would just play through it at the time. I've basically been sitting him against LHPs and very tough RHPs like Prior as he's been horrendous against LHPs.
Been juggling between him, L Castillo and Guillen for 2B and SS. Since this is a dynasty-like keeper league, I can't exactly drop any of them although I'm now considering dropping Castillo for Polanco because Polanco recently signed a 4-year extension, which makes him keepable for 4 years in my league. Plus Polanco gets to face some weak KC pitching up ahead and might also help me a little at 3B where I'm juggling between Mora, Tracy and Encarnacion.
