I am loaded with OFs.

Griffey-DL
Lofton
Bernie Williams
Bobby Abreu
JD Drew
Chipper Jones who I play at UTIL

Question- A guy dropped Shawn Green in my league. Should I pick him up on waivers? If so who should go?

The only one I'd consider dropping for Green at the moment is Lofton. Green will certainly break out of his slump, but his numbers won't approach the expectations a lot of people had in him before the season - losing Sheffield in the lineup hurt Green quite a bit.

If you feel Lofton will come down to earth, drop him for Green; if not, stay put. Your outfield is fantastic - you can afford to follow your instincts on this one. If it were my decision, I'd stay, watch these players closely until the waiver deadline, and see if anything happens that would influence the decison. I'd probably keep the guys you have, though.

I's take Green rightaway, he's one of the best you can have, but Lofton will put up good stats, too, and he'll give you steals!!!If you don't need steals take Green!

Take Green and run. Even if you dont plan on playing him he'll be great trade bait for later in the year. Is there anyone else you can drop for him?

Green is a top seven OF no question. He always hits forty HRs. Pick him up immediately. I cant believe he is on the waiver wire.
I know the future!!!!!!!
