I don't see a whole lot of value in Tori Hunter with the numbers he is putting up. The angels are slumping and I am not sure they are play off material. I am trying to get rid of Abreu right now. I would stay put if I were you and move up the waiver wire.

I'd roster Hunter over Blackmon, Lawrie and Gordon. You have a handful of unproven guys who will ultimately see bad streaks at times. I think getting a proven vet for one is worth it.

For the most part, they won't see your lineup anyways as you have a good starting core.

So which would you drop to grab Hunter: Blackmon, Lawrie or Gordon?
I assume it's worth waiting to see when Jennings gets the call?

Since I see you are in a keeper league, I wouldn't bother with Hunter at all. I dropped him in favor of Morse over a month ago and he's been sitting in the FA pool ever since.

I'd drop Lawrie. You're solid at third and his impact this year will be minimal. I do believe Jennings can impact when called up.

Keeper league is irrelevant. None of the guys mentioned should even be considered.
