Bass/DeAza are the only viable options for dropping. I would sooner drop Gardner/Dempster than anyone else. Do that 2/1 trade you were selling below.

Why would you sooner drop Gardner/Dempster? Dempster is only out with a quad injury and he was pitching very well before it occured. Gardner is an elite base stealer, and on a team that can drive him in. I agree either Bass or Aza, just not sure. Bass seems like he is a person to stream only in certain matchups, while Aza to me seems like a solid player to own, but I have sooo many OF's......

I meant I would sooner drop Dempster than any of your other pitchers besides Bass, and I would drop Gardner rather than any other hitter besides DeAza.
