Generally, I try to give players until May. April is way too early to be dropping players. I only meant Ellis as a backup anyway, though. Then Lugo got injured, and I couldn't find anyone on waivers worth holdign, so he has been my starting SS. Actually, I had Betemit, and he was helping a little. I just traded for Cabrera. I will throw Ellis on the bench, and when Lugo gets off the DL, I will seriously have to think about dropping him because I won't have the room for him on my roster anymore.
