furcal. If it's a keeper, you won't be keeping either helton or furcal.

Nope, keep what you have. Helton's been a pleasant surprise this season, but he's not better then any of the other options you have right now.

No. Helton's one of my all-time favorites but his upside can't touch Hosmer at this point. The other three have more value as well.

People seem to forget how hard it can be for a hitter to come back from thumb injuries and hit. furcal is now 1-18 since coming back from his injury. No reason to hold onto him until he can prove he can hit again.

hard to fully say without seeing your team. who's your SS? in a vacuum i'd day drop furcal if you need AVG/OBP and a few HRs from helton. do NOT drop hosmer, keeper or no.

see mine? thx Mother NatureSweet says: “I like dips as much as the next Earth goddess. But I love my surprisingly sweet Sunbursts without dips even more.”
