Dempster is your only droppable guy. Honestly I wouldn't make a move right now. Picking up prospects on the CHANCE they will be called and THEN perform well is foolish. You already have Brown, plus Strasburg stashed, just keep your players as is and don't worry about prospects for the time being.
The only guys I considered dropping were Avila (I have Martin and 2 catchers is kind of meh ... Though I like Avila and we play 3 utility). The other is Domonic Brown, but he just got up and I still like his potential.
Lawrie is tempting because we have some very proactive owners and I was able to grB homer is use him in a trade for Prince. So sometimes the speculative grabs pay off in our league.
Yeah, what the heck...drop Avila for him. I think Lawrie's going to make a real splash. It's always a risk to take a chance on a guy like this but sometimes you catch lightning in a bottle like you did with Hosmer...or some people did with Posey last year...and so on. Bottom line - there's a much better chance that Lawrie has a major impact on your season (as a player or trade bait) than Avila does!
