I'm planning on dropping Bryce Harper. Mike Moustakas was dropped yesterday. I have the #2 overall waiver claim. Is Moustakas worth grabbing? I don't have a backup for Wright at 3B, but Moustakas hasn't exactly been impressive to start the season. Here are the other FA options I could grab:

FA Bats:
-Justin Morneau
-Alejandro de Aza
-Mike Trout
-Rafael Furcal (best ranked player available...most points on the FA and a backup for Castro)
-AJ Pierzynski
-Jordan Schafer
-Travis Hafner
-Alex Rios (intriguing if he can regain form from 2010)
-Bryan LaHair
-Luke Scott
-Cody Ross
-Matt Joyce
-Jason Bay
-Mike Moustakas
-Gerardo Parra
-Nate Schierholtz
-Ryan Sweeney
-Adam LaRoche

FA Pitchers:
-Justin Masterson (on waivers...have 2nd overall claim)
-Matt Capps
-Jonathan Broxton
-Bud Norris
-Rick Porcello
-Francisco Cordero
-Tyler Clippard (our league counts holds...could he get closer gig too?)
-Ryan Vogelsong
-John Danks
-Matt Thornton
-Erik Bedard
-Mark Buehrle
-Jhoulys Chacin
-Jeff Samardzija
-AJ Burnett
-Tommy Milone
-Dillon Gee
-Daniel Bard
-Mitchell Boggs (league counts holds)
-Jason Hammel
-Juan Cruz (Hanrahan injured?)

Since he's considering dropping Bryce, I'm gonna guess that it's not even a keeper league ... or at least not a very deep one. If this is true I would dump him for Morneau. Moustakas is ok, but Morneau is way more valuable, IMO. I definitely wouldn't waste a waiver pick on him.

Moose is definitely droppable in non-keeper leagues at the moment. I agree on picking up Jordan Schafer.

Alright, so I guess it comes down to Schafer, Morneau, or de Aza. I have Freeman and Davis at 1B, where I have no fill-in OFs with Young and Crawford hurt.
