Dee Gordon dropped. Who should I drop? Leave a link

Postby Fish Tacos » Sun Apr 08, 2012 10:41 am

Someone in my league dropped Dee Gordon (I have no idea why). I have first waiver wire pick up. Is there any reason why I should not be grabbing him other than I don't know how he will fit in to my lineup? Isn't there to much potential and upside to let someone else grab him? Who would you drop? Leake? Espinosa? L Cain? Leave a link.

Would help to see whole team. I'd grab Gordon with the #1 no doubt though. Of the ones you listed I may drop Leake or Cain. OF and SP are deeper positions and easier to replace than 2B(Espinosa) or SS(Gordon).

If you post your whole roster we can help more.

I depends on what the wire looks like in your league. Whatever seems the easiest to replace. Out of that group I'd probably drop Espinosa or Leake, since they're likely the most replaceable.

There's no question that you should add Gordon though. ;-D

I actually think Jansen may be the best choice to drop. Guerra is looking good. Jansen is droppable. Leake I think is going to actually have a real good season and will be a big sleeper and Cain is tearing it up. Dropping Espinosa is not the best idea given how shallow 2B is in my league

I'd go Cain....You look deep at OF since I assume Kendrick and Zobrist are eligible there. Gordon and espinosa give you some flexibility to move those guys into an OF slot and put them at 2B or MI position.

True I am very deep at the OF position. Zobrist, Kendrick and MArkakis are all eligible. Why do you think Jansen is worth holding on to?

I would drop Jansen and look to trade Espinosa. With Gordon, I do not see when you would ever start Espinosa (even if one of your middle infielders was out for a day).

I wouldn't drop Jansen. In a roto his K/9 helps out a ton, low innings with high strikeouts! If you want to get rid of him then definitely trade him. I guarantee if you drop him someone in your league will snatch him up.

Kind of like the guy above said, I don't see where you would start Cain but you would put Jansen in your lineup. It's a no brainer to me but it's your team. haha.

My vote is for Cain or Leake, Leake is pretty much just a start for good match ups any ways
