Drop Howard and/or CarGo? Non Keeper

Postby Detro76 » Wed Sep 21, 2011 10:35 am

I'm in the stretch and down slightly in RBI and SB (by 1 - 2 "points" -H2H) and am looking to go steal heavy. I am riddled with injuries - CarGo, Howard (now potentially Pence).

Should I drop the two aforementioned and grab Mark Reynolds and Dee Gordon? I have effectively punted the BA, HR and Runs categories and am close on some of the pitching cats as well.

I feel handcuffed by these two injuries...so if I even wanted to play catchup (hitting or pitching-wise) I feel like I cannot.

Here's my team as it stands now:

C J.P. Arencibia, Tor C
1B Paul Konerko, CWS 1B, DH
2B Brett Lawrie, Tor 2B, 3B
3B David Wright, NYM 3B
SS Alexei Ramirez, CWS SS
OF Hunter Pence, Phi OF DTD
OF Angel Pagan, NYM OF
OF Ben Revere, Min OF
UTIL Cameron Maybin, SD OF
Bench Carlos Gonzalez, Col OF DTD
Bench Ryan Howard, Phi 1B DTD

Thoughts? Am I crazy to do this? Should I consider only dropping/grabbing 1 of these guys? How 'bout dropping Alexi Ramirez instead (I'd potentially lose a position player on Thursday).

Thanks.

You need a 2b. Dump Lawrie for Jemile Weeks or Eric Young Jr for an uptick in SB. I'd probably take Gordon over Alexei too for SB.
