When I read "I dropped Lee," I first thought you meant Cliff and had a panic attack for you.

But smart move losing Carlos...he's getting less effective by the inning these days.

Good luck! ;-D

Well Hamilton is hurt now, and I need to start someone at OF. Gordon? I am thinking about dropping Edwin Jackson for an OF. Beltran, Fowler, Ben Francisco, Johnny Damon, LaPorta, and Logan Morrison are available. Who would you pick up?

Definitely, Logan Morrison, he's been hitting the ball well. Don't get LaPorta, he's in a slump. :-D ;-D

Fowler, Ben Francisco, Johnny Damon, LaPorta, and Logan Morrison


Considering you still have Andrus, Upton, and Young, you have plenty of SB potential, so forget Fowler and Damon.

I'm simply not a believer in Ben Francisco sustaining this type of performance for the entire season.

What your team really needs is HR pop, so that brings us to Gordon, LaPorta, and Morrison. Of the 3, LaPorta was probably originally projected to hit the most homers, but he simply hasn't hit...at all. Morrison is currently producing the best mix of power and batting average, but not sure the power is truly legit yet,

Something tells me this is Alex Gordon's year...well, more than something. I wrote a long piece on it. Read it here, and then (hopefully) feel confident inserting him into your starting lineup.

Logan Morrison. he suffered the often talked about hand injury in '09 and now his power is back.

And before anyone mentions '08, he played in one of the most extreme pitcher's parks in baseball in a pitcher's league.

Since I last posted, here are the changes to my team. Should I have dropped Maybin?
Add: Fowler, Morrison, Capps
Drop: Edwin Jackson, Maybin, Franklin

So now I need to start 3 OF from:
BJ Upton, Delmon Young, Alex Gordon, Grady Sizemore, Logan Morrison, Dexter Fowler

I have Reynolds in my Util spot, would you start any of the unused OF over him?

And in need 2 SP spots:
Hellickson (@Tor), Pinieda (Oak), Bumgarner (Atl), Drabek (NYY), Ogando (KC)

Also Edwin Jackson and Travis Wood are double starters on the waivers. Would you pick either up?

I have a feeling this is Edwin Jackson's career year, so I'd definitely look into grabbing him.

Of the OF, I'd probably start Alex Gordon, Dexter Fowler, and BJ Upton. Use Logan Morrison in the Utility. Delmon Young and Grady will eventually be in the mix, but until they figure it out (and for Grady, until he shows he's completely healthy), wait on them.

Good luck! ;-D

Zhangman, Beachy is no longer on my team and my DL spot is currently occupied by Andrew Bailey.

Who would you recommend I drop for Edwin Jackson.

Sizemore looked good in his rehab stints and he was 2-5 with a HR today in his ML debut.
