I think Cishek and Colon are viable dumps. I'd hold on Hunter ... he could still be productive, especially if Choo doesn't snap out of it.

If you're willing to drop anyone, then I would drop Cishek probably, but Vargas and Colon could also be ok drops if you'd rather hold on to Cishek for possible saves.

If you would prefer to drop a bat, I'd say hunter.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

I think Cishek is a pretty safe drop. You have other decent save options, especially with Bell getting the closer gig back for now. If you'd prefer to hang on to Cishek though, I'd think parting with Hunter could be a pretty harmless option. Hunter's got all the personal stuff going on, he was awful even before that, and the Angels offense is also horrible. I don't think you'd regret losing him, and Choo is an upgrade IMO. OF for OF swap, with the potential for more production.

If you're comfortable dropping Cishek, I'd do that first. If you'd prefer to keep the saves and just do a bat-for-bat swap, I think you're right: Hunter's the best option and would cause the least damage to lose.

I would say Colon is the better drop for right now, but agree with everyone with dropping hunter if you want to do bat/bat

help with mine?
