Hanson to DL. Better FA Grab: Blackmon or Norris? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Fri Jun 17, 2011 4:39 pm

I have been eying Charlie Blackmon but have been unwilling to drop anyone for him. With Hanson to the DL, I could grab him now. However, I am losing a SP from this so am I better off grabbing Bud Norris?

Which to grab based on my team: Charlie Blackmon or Bud Norris?

Norris should already be owned, so this looks like the perfect opportunity for you to snatch him up.

Bud Norris for sure - I agree that he should already be owned

Crap guys, I jumped the gun earlier and picked up Blackmon. But I still have another move I can make before I reach the 4-move quota for the week. Drop Blackmon for Norris? Or drop someone like Delmon for Norris?
