Drop Dee Gordon for Ian Desmond?

Postby Lionsno20 » Sat May 19, 2012 8:03 am

Head-to-head, daily, 12 team, 6x6 offense categories are r, rbi, nsb, tb, avg, ops

Dee Gordon with yet another 0-5. Time to drop him for someone like Ian Desmond? I have lots of other guys to get steals. Dee is not contributing at all.

Others available include Lowrie, Cozart, Desmond, A.Escobar, Aybar, S.Drew, Andino.

Thanks

I wouldn't drop Dee Gordon... But as a Gordon owner I know how frustrating he can be. I would just hold onto him and wait for him to heat up a little bit.

He's plays in an offense that's been fairly high powered and I think he will turn it around. I'd just bench him if you have any other backup options for now. I have Hosmer doing the same for me...he's been riding my bench pretty much all year.

This. Gordon has no power, doesn't walk and has consistently had contact issues. It has never been about his ability to steal bases (which he isn't even doing that) but whether he can keep that BA above the mendoza line. Plus his 10 errors might cause the Dodgers to look for a SS somewhere else.
