So Paul Maholm went undrafted in my 12-team H2H league, and I'd really like to grab him up before the season starts and he puts up No. 2 starter numbers. The problem is, I can't seem to bring myself to drop anyone on my current roster.
If A-Rod starts the season on the DL, that would clear this problem right up, as I currently have one unoccupied DL spot. However, I'm worried that somebody will come in and grab Maholm before the start of the season. Can anyone convince me to drop one of these guys? Fred Lewis is the only one I can even think about letting go at the moment...

i think id drop Casilla over Lewis. id expect better production from Lewis than Casilla. i think id expect from Casilla something like .270ish AVG, less than 5 HR, and if hes playing regular 20+ SB. im not sure where hes hitting in the lineup, but im guessing near the bottom? so that would be a negative on him for R/RBI. Lewis is someone who i think is batting 3rd for SF. he could have .280ish AVG, 10+ HR, 20+ SB plus batting 3rd the R/RBI should be a positive aswell. Casilla could have a better AVG, but i wouldnt expect similar type HR that he had in 08 with 7. he never showed much power in the minors. just my thoughts.
