I would drop Lohse for him. After a strong start, he's really come back down the earth, and wouldn't be a big loss.

So I understand why people are saying drop Lohse. He has been doing pretty awful (should we say "back to his old ways"), but I am finding it hard to drop him. He's already gotten me 175 points. He is 81% owned, and he is 7-4. These types of decisions make or break teams. But I am more comfortable dropping Erik Bedard, to be Honest. Clay Buchholz would be a great addition to my pitching staff if I clear waivers.

You're more comfortable dropping Bedard? Not sure your scoring system but i think you've lost your mind.

Bedard pitches in a good ballpark for pitchers and plays in a relatively weak division...

I may have found someone interested in Lohse. I can maybe Josh Collmenter. Should I do it? or would I end up dropping Collmenter anyway for Buchholz. If I got Collmenter who would I drop for Buchholz?

Thanks so much

Buchholz would still be the better option, so I don't see the point in making a deal involving Lohse unless it's a two for one that frees up a roster spot for you.

And you should most certainly NOT drop Bedard. Take a look at his game log since April 27th.
