Must Drop One Player to Activate Hanley. WhIch? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Mon Jun 13, 2011 9:41 am

Which of the following players do I drop to activate Hankey? None are really keeper considerations since we only keep 6 players. But I don't want to drop a gift for someone to claim on waivers, so please factor that in. I started slow but am climbing in the standings fast. We cow t stats like singles,doubles, triples...

Options to drop (pick 1):

Russell Martin
Dee Gordon
Ian Desmond
Mark Trumbo
Brett Lawrie


12 Team H2H. We Keep 6 Players Season to Season, each for 3 years max. * means contract year

Stat Cats: R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG -- IP, CG, W, L, ER, ERA, K, SV, WHIP

MY TEAM (pending processing of a recent trade)

C A. Avila
1B P. Fielder
2B D. Pedroia
3B A. Rodriguez
SS D. Gordon
OF C. Gonzalez
OF J. Bruce
OF J. Ellsbury
UT M. Brantley
UT E. Hosmer
UT M. Trumbo
BN R. Martin
BN B. Lawrie
BN I. Desmond
DL I. Davis
DL H. Ramirez

SP R. Halladay
SP F. Hernandez
SP T. Lincecum
RP J. Walden
RP S. Santos

Martin is awful, and you already have Avila. I would say one of the prospects is the best drop but I know how you love them so I will put a vote in for Martin.

Thanks for helping with mine. You said you only keep 6, and you have a pretty stacked line-up. I would drop one of the prospects or perhaps Martin as suggested above. Personally, I would pick the prospect you rank the lowest. Ask yourself: who will you keep if the season ends today?

since you like Avila more than Martin they are both solid Catchers the answer is Martin you don't need to keep 2 catchers especially in a 12 team league

The need for three SS's is even less than the need for two C's. Gordon is at least cheap speed, so drop Desmond. It looks like you're already not playing him even in a worst-case scenario at the position (Hanley down), might as well lose the dead weight with Hanley back.

Desmond or Martin. I would say Desmond since Martin may at least see some action when Aliva isn't playing. HanRam stays in every day when he gets back and you have a backup SS anyway.

Please help me out if you have the time.
