I forgot to add one bench spot on my roster, I have another quality young arm:
BN - Armando Galarraga

I agree with Wildcat, you cannot drop any of those players and if you look on the bright side your "problem," might be a positive thing. Yadier is playing really really well and you could possibly deal McCann when he returns. Rollins will heat up soon enough and you can def trade Drew, i'm sure a lot of owners in your league would love to have him since there are only a few solid SS's. Your pitching is awesome and you have 2 of the best young pitchers in baseball; Danks and Josh Johnson, (once Price comes up you will probably have top 3 lol.) My only concern for your team is your outfield. Damon-Werth-Snider-Justin Upton is not horrible but I think if you dealt McCann or Drew you could really bolster your outfield and make your team unstopable!
Yeah that's kind of what I'm figuring. I don't think I want to trade McCann. Even if Yadier keeps it up, it'll be more geared towards avg than power, and if there's anything I'm lacking right now its power. I traded Cruz's power for Rollins' speed, and though I don't lose power with Rollins I don't really gain much over Drew. I might not have done the deal if I wasn't so sky high on Travis Snider (The longer the O's hold out on Wieters, the better Snider's AL ROY chances get, lol). Not only that, I have a feeling that as the season goes on, Cruz is gonna lose some ABs and Snider's going to gain some. Cruz just doesn't make enough contact to avoid the odd 2 for 20s here and there, and with Andruw Jones looking like he turned the clock back five years. Meanwhile, Snider's being platooned with a righty who has a career .728 OPS. He's probably the best left handed hitter the Jays have, and I fully expect him to both move up in the lineup and start getting more ABs.
Anyway, I also had Pat Burrell who I got in the deal for Rollins, who would have been a decent power source, but I don't like relying on guys like Burrell, so I dropped him for Upton. I feel like I'll have the flexibility to make a deal for a power hitting outfielder, probably by the time Price gets promoted. That might be a good time to sell high on a guy like Galarraga or maybe even Danks. Not that I don't like those guys, but I could see their perceived value becoming higher than their actual value, and I'll definitely have plenty to fall back on with CC, Haren, Johnson, and eventually Price.
