An owner dropped Pence to pick up Branyan (WHY!?!) and so I'm considering putting in a claim for him. But I'm having trouble deciding whether or not I even need Pence. I recently added Hanson with Josh Hamilton going to the DL. I have no idea who I'd drop here to pick Pence up.
10 Team League, H2H Daily Lineup Change Hitting cats: R, RBI, HR, SB, CS, AVG, OBP, SLG, K Pitching cats: ERA, WHIP, K/9, K, W, L, SV, BSV, IP
Roster: C - Yadier Molina 1B - Prince Fielder 2B - Ian Kinsler 3B - David Wright SS - Stephen Drew OF - B.J. Upton OF - Adam Jones OF - Ben Zobrist Util - Jayson Werth DL - Chris Iannetta, Josh Hamilton
SP - Hamels, Billingsley, Lackey, Erv, Edwin Jackson, Mark Buehrle, Harang, Hanson RP - Bell, Fuentes, Street, Franklin.
Please don't leave advice telling me to drop an active closer, like "Street because his job isn't secure," or "franklin because he's going to lose it." Saves are competitive in this league, you just don't drop active closers.
In no way would I drop Werth. I am not a Pence fan and would probably stand pat. If you have to have him, then I suppose I agree with the above re Drew...the only problem is I think Drew is going to turn it around and have a big second half.
You couldn't pass on Pence. I still don't understand why he was dropped (owner not happy with .350 average?). I'd probably quickly turn around and trade him - as hot as he is and since your OF is very crowded.
