Alright, so Michael Young will be down for a couple weeks with no trip to the DL and I've just entered the first round of my league's playoffs. I'm going to need to drop someone to make room for a replacement shortstop. So two questions:
#1: Who do I drop?
C: Kurt Suzuki 1B: Albert Pujols 2B: Brandon Phillips 3B: Alex Rodriguez SS: Michael Young LF: Manny Ramirez CF: Shane Victorino RF: Jayson Werth UT: David Ortiz BN: Jacoby Ellsbury
SP: Cole Hamels, Chad Billingsley, Roy Oswalt, Jered Weaver, Ubaldo Jimenez, Randy Wells, Max Scherzer and Barry Zito RP: David Aardsma, Frank Francisco and Rafael Soriano
#2: Which SS do I pickup? Notable SS on my WW: Yunel Escobar, Felipe Lopez, Eric Aybar, Alex Gonzalez & Maicer Izturis all seem to be having decent months.
Well if your in a points league Eric Aybar is probably your best bet. He's consistantly producing 12-20 pts each week. (based on CBS standard).
Plus, he's hitting well so if your in a cat league he'll at least fill in BA/runs for you kinda like Young would do healthy.
Who else is available.
Felipe Lopez is not having the season I thought he would.
Stephen Drew available?
Even deeper, what about Brandon Wood, he just got called up and has some upside. You have another droppable guy. If this is NOT a keeper ditch Michael Young for Aybar and then dump one of Wells/Zito for Wood.
The best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be!
