Drop Urbina if you are pretty certain that he won't get picked up by another team in your league. At this time, he is the one to drop, however if you're looking for the worst upside, it would probably be Rod Beck since he's for the Pads but then again the Pads seem to be getting a juiced batting lineup if it comes down to Nevin, Klesks, Giles, Kends, and Burroughs, and company and they're pitching is decent. It's getting a bit trickier now with the Pads becoming good if you could say that.

If you need saves production right now, I'd drop Urbina, since he isn't getting saves at this point. However, I really think that at some point Looper will be dumped out of the closers role in favor of Urbina. However, you don't really know when that will happen and if it will happen with enough time left to really help.

If you can afford to wait on Urbina, Beck is probably the best bet to drop.

Urbina.

Yes you can say that .. its ok, don't get caught up in the overall record. No they are not making the playoffs this year but the NL West has to go through SD and it will not be an easy task. Might as well write off LA. :-)

I say
Baez
Beck (the shooter is perfect, baby)
Cordero
Urbina.

But Urbina will have the FLA job within 2 weeks. IMO

Urbina could take Looper's job anytime though.

Drop Urbina. I don't believe he's going to get the closers job.

Tonight, he inherits the bases loaded and walks in a run. Unbelievable. He got out of it by striking out two, but how the hell do you walk Carlos Baerga? I could understand trying to be careful with LuGo, but Baerga?

Looper's job is safe.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.
