I suppose Lawrie is also a candidate for this, but I basically need to drop a player to activate Beltran and I'd rather hang onto Lawrie for 2B backup. So if it's between dropping Bourjos or Logan Morrison, who should I dump? Bourjos is nice speed off the bench and triples are hard to come by in our league, but LoMo has some power/RBI potential. I want to make this decision with fantasy playoffs in mind.

You'd be surprised ... I've actually struggled quite a bit with stolen bases, and it seems triples are a real crapshoot.
Devil's advocate: could one make the case that I am better off with Bourjos as a SB weapon to deploy off the bench when needed vs. trying to guess when to play Morrison over Beltran and vice versa, both being similar type hitters?
I think I'd drop LoMo since Bourjos has been hot lately and seems to have solidified his spot on the Angels. LoMo seems to be a shaky in terms of where he stands with the Marlins. If LoMo isn't going to get the playing time, he's no good to you.

I know ... big 2 hit day with a homer from LoMo ... geez, this is a tough call. The sad part is that if position scarcity weren't an issue I'd priobably drop Brett Lawrie. But I just know that Lawrie has the ability to get hot and be an impact bat with 2b/3b eligibility. That kind of guy will get picked up and could come back to haunt me in the playoffs...
