Really? Uh oh. I droppped him a couple weeks back and no one has picked him up yet.
I'm in a small league (as I mentioned in my crazy "drop josh johnson?" thread), so there's always talent on the waiver wire.
This is my first time playing fantasy baseball and it's tricky since most of the advice you can read on the interwebs doesn't really apply to my league. There are always a handful of players owned in 100% of leagues available on the waiver wire. eg current pitchers avail:
PLAYER, TEAM POS %OWN +/-
Shaun Marcum, Mil SP 100 0.5
Jon Lester, Bos SP 100 0
Tommy Hanson, Atl SP 100 0
Jaime Garcia, StL SP 98.8 -1.2
Chad Billingsley, LAD SP 95.1 -4.6
Vance Worley, Phi SP 93.2 -0.7
Mat Latos, Cin SP 90.8 0.1
Jason Hammel, Bal SP 88.9 29.4
Doug Fister, Det SP 86.6 18.2
If it's okay if I piggy back on this thread, any thoughts on playing in a small league / using the waiver wire as your bench? At what point do you cut a struggling "un-cuttable" player when there's another good player available who's hot?
