Currently in third place in a 12-team 6x6 h2h league w/ fielding percentage (negligible effect) and holds (forces more use of middle relievers). Still, I'm struggling to stay competitive as my team is being utterly ravaged by injury (in addition to the roster below I also had Kendrys Morales, Jose Contreras, Jonathan Broxton, Jason Bay and Grady Sizemore at various points this season).
Should I pick up Justin Smoak, Nick Markakis or Josh Willingham? If so, who could I even drop?
C Alex Avila (c) 1B Mark Trumbo (1b) 2B Dustin Pedroia (2b) 3B Michael Cuddyer (1b, 2b, 3b, of) SS Alex Gonzalez (ss) OF Melky Cabrera (of) OF Chris Young (of) OF Carlos Lee (of) UTIL Logan Morrison (of) BN Anthony Rizzo (1b) BN Hanley Ramirez (ss)-dl BN Martin Prado (2b, 3b, of)-dl BN Joe Mauer (c)-dl - SP Josh Beckett SP Anibal Sanchez SP CC Sabathia SP Gavin Floyd RP Sergio Santos RP Jordan Walden P Tyler Clippard P Tony Sipp BN Ted Lilly BN Francisco Liriano DL Josh Johnson
I don't see any of those being worth a speculative add, considering that you would have to drop someone. Of the three, Smoak has the greatest potential to return dividends, but I wouldn't drop Rizzo or Trumbo, or one of those similar "flier" players for him.
