Overstaffed team - trade/drop advice

Postby ganelon » Fri Jul 18, 2008 11:51 pm

I'm in a 12 team H2H league, and over the next week or so I'll be pulling Ortiz and Bedard off the DL and back into their respective roster slots. I'll need to ditch two players via trade or drop, and I'm looking for some advice on who to consider. I'm looking to keep my team strong - I'm in 4th place - for the second half of the season, but I'm pretty jammed up in the IF and OF:

Here are positions that I'm fine with, as I have only one player for each:
C - R. Doumit
SS - R. Theriot

And here's where I've got some decisions to make:
1B: D. Ortiz (DL), P. Konerko
2B: R. Weeks, H. Kendrick
3rd: C. Headley, H. Blalock, J. Cantu (eligible for 1B too)
OF: C. Granderson, A. Rowand, J. Bruce, J. Ellsbury, K. Fukudome

Here are my pitchers, in case you're interested. I'm fairly committed to thinning out my position players, though:
SP: C. Lee, F. Hernandez, A. Burnett, C. Billingsley, J. Garland, E. Bedard (DL)
RP: B. Lidge, J. Soria, S. Torres, G. Sherrill

Any suggestions on which two IF/OFs to move or drop?

I would drop Blalock or Konerko, but Bedard will be out for at least 3-4 more weeks.

Konerko and Blalock are the obvious weak links to me.
