I traded Cozart for Jason Kipnis, and that trade goes through tonight. So I am considering dropping Kelly Johnson (my current 2B) for the best OF option on the FA. Do you think I should make this move, and if so who should I get?
12 team h2h keeper league (7 keepers max)
Alex Rios Jose Tabata Matt Joyce Austin Jackson Carlos Lee Josh Willingham Chris Helsey Jason Bay Yonder Alonso Bryan LaHair Alfonso Soriano Angel Pagan J.D. Martinez Michael Brantley Ben Revere Denard Span
I am currently thinking either Lee, Alonso or Willingham. Leaning towards Willingham, but I like Alonso in a keeper.
There are a lot of options there. I'm not that sold on dropping Johnson actually, but if you feel strongly about it, the three options you said were nice (I especially like Willingham), and would at least keep an eye on Rios/Tabata as the year goes on, because Rios could go 15/15, and Tabata has a decent speed/pop combo.
And if Heisey gets at-bats in Cincinnati, watch out. He may end up being the most rosterable of any of those OF choices.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

Out of those OF, I would say I like Willingham the best. But I'm not sure if that will be a better option than Kelly Johnson (who has a Braves fan, can get ice cold, and then go torrid). But if your OF needs it, then do it.
Well here is my roster. Don't you think I need another OF'er more so then I need a back up SS?
