Some guy in my league just dropped chris davis. I'm really considering picking him up, but I do have concerns. My league counts strikeouts (also hits and total bases plus the typical categories) and davis might push me over the top in that category. also, how real is this slump? Is there somthing mechnical or is he not seeing the ball? Also, who should I drop? the obvious answer would be alex gordon, but a struggling Upton might be an option. Weiters is also a non-productive asset, but I think i want to hold on to him. I could also drop a pitcher since I'm deep there, but none of them are really dropable. If i make the claim, who should I drop?
heres my roster: C: Innetta 1b: Prince 2b: utley ss: hanley 3b: gordon of: rios of: ellsbury of: chris young util: votto util:tulowitzki bn: j.upton bn: wieters dl: Arod
Pitchers: Haren, Billingsley, Hernandez, kazmir, vazquez, grienke, gallardo, harang, sherill, and mike gonzalez
also, milledge and either are avialible, are they upgrades over upton?
I would pick up Ethier And Davis for Upton and Gordon. If you are gonna have a slumping 3B might as well have one with huge upside. Although some are high on Milledge, I think Ethier is in a great situation in LA and should put up some nice stats. Even without coming out blazing he's still put up some decent stats.

Put in claims for both, though I doubt I'll get both. The guy dropped Ethier for church, which I suppose could work out, though its not a move I'd make. And his dropping davis wasn't totally rediculous. he has chipper and lee at the corners, and did get some decent pitching. he's aggresive, but I don't mind taking advatage of that, anyway, thanks for the help.
Well, got out waivered on Davis, and grabbed swisher instead of Ethier, I think the yankees have to find a spot for him even after Tex comes back. The guy that picked up Davis dropped Hafter though. He has some pretty big upside, but his hogging a util spot is troubling. I'm thinking of dropping Harang for him though, since my league counts BBs and HRs against, which creates something of a natural innings cap. Its a ten team league so pitching can be had, and adding a potentally elite bat couldn't hurt. agree?
