all that is fine and good but you're forgetting one thing. NO ONE in your league will want him right now. so drop him, ride a hot bat (cust, werth, whoever is the flavor of the week) and if you see any signs of his avg even touching .220, then you can pick him back up.[/quote]


Exactly!

Why are you even worried about it? Drop him, no one is going to pick him up off waivers. I dropped him weeks ago and there he sits, a free agent. He's FA fodder for the forseeaable future, if you have him rostered, you're wasting a spot.

Don't look now, but this is probably the best week Swisher has had all season....

I drafted him, dropped him, and picked him back up today. I had an empty spot so why not. Hopefully he'll turn it around.

anyone buying into his little run the last week or so? 8 game hitting streak with 3 homeruns over that time and raised his average over 20 points.

The numbers never lie.....

I'm going to have to play him over Quentin this week. Looks like he might be leveling off anyway.

this is why i stashed him for about a month.... in my league we count walks and i've just waited until he gets going to put him in my utility spot....

he's basically a cheaper adam dunn right now...
