Right now I only have Kyle Blanks for a hitter on the bench, I need a starting 2B/SS until Reyes returns. I was thinking about dropping a pitcher since I should probably have more than 1 hitter on my bench anyway, but I'm not sure if it's worth dropping one of my pitchers. Should I drop Blanks and roll with 1 bench hitter still?
On the WW at 2B/SS Martin Prado, Theriot, Everth Cabrera, Kelly Johnson, McGahee, Izturis, Barmes, Peralta
Seems like Prado would make the most sense since he has 1b, 2b, 3b eligibility. What do you guys think?

i'd drop blanks for theriot, put theriot in at 2B/SS till reyes is healthy then put whoever is hitting the best between theriot and rasmus at Util and the other on the bench, but I guarantee you that theriot will be farely better than Rasmus, he finally has that leadoff spot and has made good work of it on the base-paths and at the plate this spring, granted, i don't get over-worked with spring numbers myself and even though I may be biased as a Cubs fan it certainly backs the point when you watch a guy like Theriot perform better and better every season. every year he adds something new to his game, last year it was power. would be a perfect pick-up if total bases, steals, and average are key components of your leagues stat categories.
I would drop Ervin Santana for Theriot. As Vobs said, when Reyes returns I would platoon Rasmus and Theriot and Blanks in the Util spot, playing the hot hand and always sitting Blanks at home and always sitting Rasmus vs. lefties).
