should I drop Dee Gordon for Andrelton Simmons

Postby whet0003 » Sun Jul 01, 2012 11:46 am

I have been benching Dee Gordon all year. Given Hanley Ramirez injury history, I am a bit nervous having Gordon as backup. Am I better off with Andrelton Simmons, or should I try trading Ramirez for someone without the injury issue and then just drop or trade Grodon? I already have 2 keeper quality 3B, I won't be able to roster one of them next year anyway.

I would either make a trade or keep Gordon. He is actually stealing bases again so his value is kind of where it should have been at the start of the year.
