Aramis Ramirez...

Any suggestions on who to drop for him (or if I even need him)? I'm obviously not moving Glaus, but Aramis could possibly be a good UT for me, to alternate with Edgar Martinez.

This is my roster:
C: LoDuca (Piazza on the DL)
1B: Gibbons
2B: Vidro
SS: Renteria
3B: Glaus
OF: Pierre, Byrnes, Giles, Burnitz
Util: Edgar Martinez

SP: Zito, Willis, Lohse, Kim, Santana, Clement, Webb, Hampton (Oswalt on the DL)
RP: Guardado, Julio, Looper

Ehh, I like Aramis, but his value comes from the fact that he's playing the hot corner. I don't think there's any use for him at utility as I'd rather leave Burnitz there. On the other hand, you could stick Aramis at 3B and trade Glaus for big value, seeing as it's so hard to find a slugging 3B.

CBM, that's some good advice. glaus owners would be well advised to boost other parts of their line-up through his trade--and pick up aramis.

I agree, trade Glaus for a Big time OF or a good OF and SP.

Definetly. Boost up your other positions with a trade with Glaus, and Ramirez should be able to hold down the fort at 3rd

this might tie into my other thread, but i think you could drop shannon stewart for a-rammy.

i'm not so sure shannon's going to do much besides AVG when he returns. ramirez is going to give you a little more, i think--and at the corner...
