Drop Fuld or Gardner?

Postby KingOfSports » Mon May 30, 2011 3:47 pm

I'm 2nd to last in my league in total bases and RBI so I'm looking to revamp my outfield. I've had no luck so far with my outfield. It started off like this from the draft:

OF - Span
OF - Cuddyer
OF - Young

I traded Span for Fowler (dropped him) and cut Young and Cuddyer. I then moved Gardner from BE to OF, picked up Fuld (back when he was hot) and added Logan Morrision. So then it looked like this.

OF - Gardner
OF - Morrison
OF - Fuld

I'm trying to pick up Raul Ibanez because he provides some power and a decent BA. I have to decide to either drop Fuld or Gardner. I'm leaning toward keeping Garnder because 1) he is more proven, 2) he hits in a better lineup 3) he still hasn't played to his potential this season.

What do you guys think?

Get rid of Fuld. Terrible avg. If he continues to slide he will be riding the pine when Desmond Jennings is called up. Gardner started off slow but has heated up as of late and should continue as the season progresses.
C - Pierzynski
1b - Dunn
2b - Cano
3b - Beltre
SS - Rotating
OF - Bruce, De Aza, Cespedes
Util - Encarnacion
BN - Asdrubal, Adam Jones, Freddie Freeman

SP - Price, Gallardo, Rotating SP
RP - Myers, Perez, Nathan, Perkins, Wilhelmsen

Yep, you pretty much answered your own question. It's Fuld for the reasons you listed.
