Zobrist Dropped! EDIT: Is he worth a #1 Waiver?

Postby NikeTxGuy » Sun Jun 05, 2011 1:07 pm

This is my team:

C - Matt Wieters/Mike Napoli (I alternate between the two, depending on who starts/plays, who doesn't)
1B - Adrian Gonzalez
2B - Neil Walker
3B - Evan Longoria
SS - Hanley Ramirez
OF - Carlos Gonzalez
OF - Ryan Braun
OF - Curtis Granderson
UT - Gaby Sanchez
UT - Shin-Soo Choo
BN - Melky Cabrera

DL - Ike Davis

SP - Felix Hernandez
SP - James Shields
SP - Ian Kennedy
SP - Alexi Ogando
SP - Mat Latos
SP - Hiroki Kuroda
SP - Josh Johnson (DL)

SP/RP - David Pauley
RP - Francisco Cordero
RP - Jordan Walden
RP - Sean Marshall
RP - Fernando Salas
RP - Mike Adams

If so, who should I drop? I am thinking either Melky Cabrera, Kuroda or Latos.

EDIT: Or should I hold onto the waiver for a Top Prospect call up? Because even though Zobrist has been good in the past, and has multiple position eligibility, he's been struggling lately.

Re: Ben Zobrist Dropped! Use my #1 Waiver on him? WHIR.

I would personally drop Marshall or Adams, but even if you drop one of the player you mentioned, it would be a great move. Why would anyone drop Zobrist? who did he add instead?

Can you help with mine:

He didn't pick up anyone... He just dropped Zobrist. I need more input, not that I should keep my #1 waiver for a top prospect that could be called up? I am part of a keeper league, where we would keep either 5 or 6 players after this season, depending on majority vote.

We don't need bold questions or bumps. This is a no-brainer. ADD ZOBRIST FOR MARSHALL. If you ask for advice, take it. Sure a "hot" prospect might come up, but how good will he be? I don't know, but you would be very lucky if he ends up as good as Zobrist has been and can be. Don't sweat the waiver, just pick up Zobrist.
