Who to drop? WHIR

Postby berrymyers » Mon Jun 13, 2011 9:56 am

Lyles was just dropped in my 16 team dynasty league and I want to pick him up.

My team:
C-Olivo, Soto
1B-Votto, LaPorta
2B-Utley, Espinosa
3B-Reynolds
SS-Castro, D Gordon
OF-Joyce, Stubbs, McCutchen, Beltran, Brown, Jennings, Harper

SP-Hanson, Bumgarner, Zimmerman, Kennedy, Chacin, Peavy
RP-Salas,Storen, Venters, Sale


I've been trying to acquire a SP in trade but it's like pulling teeth in this league. I'm leaning towards dropping either LaPorta, Soto, or Sale. I don't really want to drop Sale since it's a dynasty. Soto seems to dissapoint every year. And I'm not sure we will ever see the 30+ homer LaPorta we were supposed to.

Is Lyles worth dropping either of these guys or do I stand pat?
20tm dynasty 5x5 w/BB,HLD

1B-Morneau,Fielder,Belt
2B-Phillips,JWeeks
3B-Zimm,Sizemore
SS-Furcal,Aviles,Casilla,Cozart
LF-Gordon
CF-C.Young
RF-J.Upton
SP-Peavy,Verlander,Bucholz,Shields,Carpenter,Matusz,Teheran
RP-Pap,Valverde,Clippard

You take the dynasty thing serious....you have only 1 player over 30 and half your team is under 25. 8-o


As to the topic, you could easily drop LaPorta or Soto for him. Is it 2 catcher league or 1 ? If it's one I'd just drop Soto, he is a bag of garbage. LaPorta isn't much better right now but he at least has a bit of an upside.
