I love his potential but he can't seem to put things together for a long period of time. If there's someone interesting on the wire, I wouldn't be adverse to dropping him.

For who? I think Beckham will still have value at some point this year but if there is something better on the WW I wouldn't be against it.

Scary enough, I like Aviles in that f/a pool.

Aviles is averaging 3.9 points. Beckham 1.9 points.

I know it's still early, but you have Walker absorbing that spot.

If anything, drop Walker to your bench in favor of Aviles and ride the hot bat. Aviles also steals bases, so it's something to consider.

I dropped Beckham last week and picked up Uribe. But I'm watching him pretty carefully. When he puts it together, I want to be able to get him back. So yes, drop him. Just pay attention.

Aviles would prob be my choice on that list.

Plus I have Izturis, Zobrist, Lowrie, N. Walker.

I'm tempted to ride it out and see how it turns out.

Are any of my outfields worth dropping/trading when Delmon Young is activated?

You're going to have a give-and-take if you drop any of your OF for Young when he gets back.

Try and work out a multi-player trade for a quality arm, IMO.

You look pretty solid. I wouldn't tinker with too much yet.
