I have Arod and as we all heard today he is going to miss some time. I have Zimmerman on my bench. Alex Gordon was dropped for some reason and is due to clear waivers tomorrow. Is Alex Gordon worth the #1 waiver claim or should i take my chances and see if he clears waivers tomorrow? Also are any of these players worth dropping for Gordon or should i just stick with Zimmerman at 3rd till Arod comes back??
Eliha Dukes Nelson Cruz(i do like him this year) John Maine Jerod Weaver Max Scherzer
here's what I'd do cut weaver or maine for gordon immediately. I think Gordon will be claimed by someone. You do have ZImm which is solid enough. You might could wait for Arod to be put on the DL, stash him and save yourself having to drop anyone, what other 3b are available?
I'd look into adding a Cantu, Blaylock, Mora, or something like that can give you some insurance and can get you by temporarily. Its a shame Glaus is missing time too he could help you as well.
Chipper strained an oblique, try offering one of your bench pitchers to him while he's down...he won't be hurt long and his owner might be starting to press the panic button too soon. Gotta strike while the iron is hot.
It might also help if we knew the rest of your roster and what else is available in case we see anything that might cover a need for ya.
The best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be!
darn, Gordon was picked up this morning. Blaylock and Mora are available. Also, i know hes not a 3rd baseman but Denard Span was dropped by the same person who dropped Gordon and did clear waivers. Here is my team
