Not Altuve. I'd drop Drew for him, though.

Hudson I would think.

He's going to miss a starter and is he really far above replacement level?

Definitely drop Tim Hudson for Ben Zobrist, that's like trading a middle to back end starter in his last years for a solid 2b/OF who is in his prime. Of course you do that. 8-o

Hudson is hit and miss now, but if he can get healthy, he can help you. Drop Drew. Except for 08 when has he ever put anything together?

I think I misread your lineup -- I'm used to one dl spot, but if all 3 of those guys are in dl spots (so that you can't open up a roster spot by dropping one), then I'd agree with dropping Hudson. Sorry -- I was thinking Ellsbury was the only guy on a dl slot.

Zobrist is an anchor that will weigh your team down.He is incredibly overhyped.

I don't think picking up a guy off the waiver wire is really going to "weigh you down". You pick him up, play him, and if he stinks, drop him. Where the harm?



Make the move, Hudson out, Zobrist in.

All this talk of anchors has me thinking Drew is your heaviest one. Drop him for Zobrist.

Drew is on the DL, dropping him won't open up a roster spot. It's Hudson or nobody.
