Drop Quentin or Bell. As a point of reference, I've dropped Bell a couple times the past couple weeks in a 12-team league and had no problems picking him back up when he got hot again

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?t=448305

Don't drop freakin' Heath Bell. That's nuts.

You've got nine outfielders. Do you need that many? Move Quinten.

Could you give me your advice on this deal for Pujols?

Yep, you need to pair down some of that OF. Either make a trade or just drop them but no reason to have 9 OF. No reason to ever have more OF than you have SP.

Unless you start 5 or 6 or have multiple UTL slots.
I was in a league that started LF/CF/RF/OF/OF/UTLx3 lol I had 9 OF on that team as well has 2 extra 1b 1 extra 2b/SS and 2 extra SP (7 SP and 3 RP which were Storen, Kimbrel and Putz)
