Who to drop for Mark Trumbo and/or David Murphy?

Postby ir0nman » Wed Jul 13, 2011 11:13 pm

I was thinking of picking up Mark Trumbo and/or David Murphy from free agency and was wondering who I should drop? I first thought was be Rasmus, since he seems to be slumpling lately. Or, should I drop a pitcher? Or should I not pick one/both of them up? Thanks!

I would think about using gordon at 3B and walker as the odd man out if you're looking to ditch someone. i like trumbo over murphy for pure stats, but i think murphy offers more usefulness with position eligibility. I'd still go with trumbo tho.

I'd drop Rasmus and pick up Trumbo.

First off, we're talking about Daniel Murphy (I hope). Anyway, Trumbo > both Murphy's.

I would not drop any of your hitting, ESPECIALLY that ridiculous suggestion of dropping Neil Walker.

I would drop Loshe, and add Trumbo. If you have some weird attachment to Loshe, then I still suggest that it is some SP that you drop.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)
