Who to drop? WHIR

Postby Bolthead04 » Thu Apr 21, 2011 11:03 pm

With Ryan Zimmerman (hopefully!) returning from the DL in half a week, I'll have to drop one to make room. During his time on the DL, I've been experimenting with my OF via the WW... And, well I'm stumped. I'd either cut most of them or none of them given the choice. Either they're going to slump soon or are in one.... Anyway, if anyone has some opinions, please share. I WHIR if you've got a question too.

I'm planning on keeping Werth, Quentin (please hold it all year...), Fuld (get back to stealing young man!), Pagan (hopefully picks it up soon...) ---- That leaves Gomes (pretty hot) Berkman (pretty hot) Reynolds (helping with Zimmer gone... well not really), Francouer (um.... got nothing.)

My league is not active in trading, and I'm doing rather poorly thus far. I'm trying to do some dealing with 2 for ones or 3 for twos, but with no luck. So, that leaves me with a thin WW with daily WW'ing by most in the league. I think I'm up a creek without a paddle here. (Is it obvious I'm a first timer?) Anyway, any help would be appreciated. :)


The league is 12 team H2H.

Easy, dump Francouer. Read all about his woes and my thoughts on him here: http://thefantasybaseballking.blogspot.com/2011/04/fire-ice-week-3.html

Trust me, as a Mets fan who witnessed a hot April in the past, I know..he's like the biggest tease at school who just never says "Yes" when you ask her out. He also once stated that walking isn't important because "walks don't show up on the scoreboard."

Stay far, far away, and just be happy you were able to get use out of him.

Good luck! ;-D

Thanks for the help! ;-D

Hopefully he has a good week before he gets axed. My matchup is not good next week.
