Postby TheGuru » Sun May 06, 2012 1:48 pm

Do I drop Boesch for Reddick? Also, Alejandro De Aza comes off waivers on the 8th.

Now that Boesch is hitting 8th not 2nd, Reddick looks like the better play.

ride with boesch, the offense will pick it up soon in detriot and boesch will be a nice addition to any team.

Definitely drop Boesch, but if you can get De Aza that would be fantastic.

Much as I like Boesch in the 2-slot when DET's offense is clicking, in a 12-team league I think he's about replacement level at this point. Makes me sad, because I was excited to draft him myself, and I'm a huge DET fan (despite my avatar).

I like either De Aza or Reddick over Boesch right now, but keep your eye on all three.

Help with mine?
