Who to drop to claim Alex Gordon?

Postby benb18a » Wed Apr 11, 2012 5:09 am

Somebody got impatient with Gordon, and I want to claim him because he's obviously worth stashing considering his situation is nearly perfect. Who do I drop to pick him up?

1B: Freeman, Lind
2B: K Johnson, Kipnis
OF: De Aza, D Young
Doug Fister (on DL, already have my one DL spot taken with Upton)

OR

try to get Austin Jackson, if his owner doesn't share my belief that he can have a MONSTER year batting leadoff in DET

OR

stand pat with an OF group of Granderson, BJ Upton, Hunter, D Young and De Aza?
1B: Freeman 2B: Craig 3B: Beltre SS: Seager C: Lucroy OF: Granderson, Harper, BJ Up UT: Kipnis, Aoki
BN: Howard, Rizzo, Donaldson
DL: Tulo
Peavy Sale, Valverde, Axford, Greinke, Marcum, Estrada, Capuano, Hughes, Haren

I would drop Delmon Young and claim Alex Gordon. I also dont think it could hurt to try and trade for Austin Jackson too, cause I also think he will have a monster year.

De Aza. I am not sold on him being that useful.

1. Somebody already got impatient with Gordon?!? It's a week into the season!!!! And he was like a 5th rd pick.

2. Drop fister. He was not that great to begin with and side injuries linger for pitchers. He is dead roster space for AT LEAST a month.

Not sure how the rest of your SPs look, but if you can afford to part with Fister then it's something to consider.

Or, given the strength of your OF you can cut Young or de Aza and should be in good shape.

I'd drop Fister. He'll be gone for a month and streaming works just fine to pick up the slack.
