Figgins?!

What are your thoughts on his injury? Is it time to cut bait with him (especially if your team is devastated with injuries and have no DL slots available)?

I dont know what you roster looks like, but I would not cut him. Too good to cut. Someone would trade for him, although you wont get full value.

Sorry, forgot to post my team. Injuries have killed me this week (although I am still winning 9-1 somehow), and I just dropped Church for Victorino. Markakis just hit the waiver wire, but I've used my 3 WW moves for the week already, so hopefully he will last until Monday!

I currently have a waiting list for my 2 DL slots, with Holliday/Posada already there, and Carmona/Figgins and now Percival just killing space on my roster, which is why I was thinking of dropping Figgins for Kouzmanoff.

I feel sorry for anyone who may have drafted a bunch of Angels players, it seems like a bunch of their players are hitting the DL and staying there for a very long time. Terrible.

If he's going to miss every game just throw him on the friggin DL! I am STACKED at every position in an 8-team league and until he hits the DL or starts playing he's just dead space in my lineup :-C

I agree, but unfortunately it doesn't help me because I have 5 (6 before I dropped Church) players either on the DL or not playing for an extended period because of injuries, and only have 2 DL slots available in our league!

People should read the post b4 commenting I guess.

Man i feel for u guy I thought my teams were in bad shape.

How many teams in your lg? If its a smaller lg cut Carmona. give ear to how long they thk Percival will be out & decide. Cueto and Perez r easy cuts but unless better on FA list I'd wait.

what 3B & SP FAs r out there?
Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!
