Also, I'm sure if u showed us your pitching that there is at least 1 or 2 players worth dropping b4 Dunn.

Dunn is on a new team and in a new league. Too many things can go wrong with an all or nothing hitter! Berkman is a great hitter, and is healthy in the middle of a great lineup. I will take a chance on him for now. The Sox look like crap right now!

Dunn is on a new team in a new league. A lot of things to learn, and a lot of pitchers will have the edge on him. Berkman is healthy again, and a proven hitter in the middle of a stacked linup. The Sox look like crap, and could go down the tubes quickly! I will take my chances on Berkman for now, but it was a hard decision.

Agreed. Some players you have to live or die by.

When stud hunting or looking for a pleasant suprise, you cant drop proven guys for them. You drop your failed sleepers/late round flyers.

Better to try and trade him for someone good, but of less value instead. If he recovers, then at least it wasnt a total waste. Dont drop
I love mock drafts.

Dude, IMO you made the right choice.

Dunn is underperforming severely. He's batting under .200 and is striking out like a madman.

You can always trade Berkman for a heavy hitter, or a solid arm. With Pujols out for @ least one game, Berkman will see time all over the place.

I am also in a H2H league where a starting pitcher can be a make or break.

Harang is not horrible by any stretch. I say drop him for Bailey next week (provided you still have H. Bailey on a w/w).
