I agree, Bundy is the easy choice.. It's close between Myers and Walker for the other spot. I could see an argument for either one. Cole is also an option. It's a toss up between those 3...

Thanks guys. Waivers ran...wish I had posted earlier for more opinion but...Anyway I had Bundy as my top option. He got picked up before me though so I picked up Walker. No one picked up Cole yet so the option is there to drop Myers for Cole? I could also consider Cole over Rendon I suppose since Rendon seems not to be able to even routinely run the bases without hurting his legs!?

Kind of radical but I would probably drop Martin and move Myers to my bench and then pick up Cole. Myers could very well be in the majors this year so I wouldn't want to drop him in this kind of league but I would want Cole as a keeper long-term. If you don't like that then I would probably stand pat.

Hmmm....interesting! Didn't even think of that option. A few things I need to consider before making this move:
1) We are a daily lineups league so for instance today I can start Martin because Montero isn't playing
2) I have faith in Montero but he still is very young so that is why I backed him up with Martin...of course I could probably find a waiver catcher if it came down to it...but then I would lose out on a bench player for use on off days
3) We can keep our minors players in the minor leagues for as long as we would like so it would be nice to carry Myers over as a minor league keeper until next year even if he is brought up (NOTE: its why I have Montero and Jennings this year)
4) What I could do though is drop Martin or maybe Pagan, move Myers or whoever to a bench spot, then pickup Cole as suggested. Then watch them all for this year and drop whichever one of them doesn't pan out at the end of the year! Hmmmm...I am kinda liking this option! Only thing is if I can afford to lose some of those off day points...

If you can keep them long term without using up an MLB spot, Walker is your guy since Bundy is gone. His combination of youth, upside, and results is pretty scary, and when he comes up he'll be pitching in Safeco.

I am having a hard time seeing the Rendon love. I would keep Walker first , the difference between he and Bundy being their divisions. I would prefer Bundy over Rendon.
