Postby Jhey88 » Fri Apr 15, 2011 2:08 pm

Also I need some advice on what to do at second base. Omar Infante is available for pickup and I was thinking of droppoing Sanchez for him. Any help is greatly appreciated.

No, but you need to pick him up. I think you should either drop Berkman or Harrison. Do whatever you have to to grab Stanton... I cant believe he got dropped. I still like Utley, though.

Is he in a DL spot? If so, you cant really drop him because noone else is on the DL on your team. Is this a keeper league? It would make way more sense if it was. While I dont see Sanchez helping you out much, there are other options not in the FA pool. Have you considered moving Berkman while he is hot? No way he keeps up reliable production, and if you could move him for a 2B I would do that in a second. While Stanton deserves to be owned, and Sanchez would make a worthy drop candidate, youll need a decent 2B to fill in there if dropped. What about Lind? Stanton put up simillar numbers last yr with 150 less AB, and has more upside. Plus, youre not even playing Lind every day, I would err on the upside potential of Stanton here.

Yes Utley is in a DL slot and it isn't a keeper league. I've been trying to move some players for Robinson Cano so that I can shore up my spot at second base but haven't had any luck in doing so.

Dropping Utley won't free up a roster space for you since he's on the DL. Not that I'd drop him anyways... Berkman is a much better candidate to get the boot for Stanton.

And adding Kelly Johnson over Sanchez is a no brainer as well.
