Postby jruffus1 » Sun Sep 04, 2011 1:01 am

I won 1st place in my league and am currently entering the second week of the playoffs (H2H non-keeper league). Steven Strasburg is starting on tuesday, and if I am going to play him, I need to drop somebody. It seems that Vogelsong would be the only logical choice at this point. Any Advice? Should I drop Vogelsong to play Strasburg?

I would drop Carpenter or Nathan, not Vogelsong.

I can see dropping Vogelsong or Carpenter. I'd lean Vogelsong though. That offense is just killing the San Fran pitchers...
