Drop Snider. I don't even know what happened to him, but he's been out for weeks.

Help?

I don't know if I would spend a number 2 out of 18 on him. He's gonna get you cats like Pierre, runs with speed. If that's what you want to spend a high waiver on then go for it.

if you want to do this the player to drop is Snider he's playing in the minors and there's no signs of him getting called back up again at the moment.

Hi
Thanks for your responses....Snider is kept on roster as he is still a top prospect and this is a deep keeper league....If Dee Gordon is only SB's and not a top top top guy than you are right I will wait until someone better comes up...not sure who that might be...would you know???
a number 2 waiver is big in this league and you dont want to waste it....

Agreed; not with your bench use the Waiver pick. Am I reading correctly that you can not grab players who are not yet on the ML Roster (Snider was)?

If so, I'd hold out for Brett Lawrie, Dustin Ackley, Mike Moustakas, Lonnie Chisenhall over Dee Gordon. He will get Hits, Runs, and SB, but that is not it (not even sure his Avg will be high, and his OBP has not historically been)

Dee is going to struggle getting on base.
And you kinda need to get on base if you want to get the steals.
I'm not convinced by him.
