Drop Gordon Beckam for Ben Zobrist? Opinions? WHIR ALL

Postby lefthandedforlife » Mon Apr 25, 2011 2:04 am

Ben Zobrist is a FA in my league. I know Beckam started hot but he's pretty cold right now. Check out my roster. I've got the ability to sit on this and not worry if someone steals him. What do you think?

I'd pick up Zobrist but at Omar's or others fate. Not Beckham's.

Looking for some input. Return the favour.

Pick up Zobrist while you can -- Maddon predicts he will have his best major league season yet -- but drop Infante. Beckham is just in a cold spell as are all of the White Sox. He will be a solid player.

I think Maicer and Infante are both expendable on your roster. Look for a better pitching option, stream starters, or a closer (or good MR).

I agree the Maicer izturis is not going to keep with his current stats but don't you think it's a bit early to be dropping him?

I might consider selling high if I can. And my pitching, is it really that bad? I do feel like it's my weakness but it's much stronger than it was.

I would consider trading for kershaw, Sabathia or lohse. Other than that I don't think the WW or FA market is very strong in my league right now. Pineda might still be available, but no matter how well he does he is still playing for a losIng team.

Who would actually trade for Maicer Izturis?

Again. I agree that its an outside shot but who drops someone who is hitting .340 and earning points on a regular basis. Especially when my Beckam is so cold why would I drop a hot player. If he is hot he must have some value for a trade rather than just dropping him. Right?

I'm not out of my mind. I'm not trading Izturis for Sabathia or anything like that.
