Wondering if some of these guys might be worth grabbing. To be honest, I'm very interested in Leake, Porcello, Wood or Fiers. Youk is a good option, but I have a bunch of 1B (Tex, Posey, Rizzo, Hart) and Wright/Zimmerman at 3B.

If I decide to add somebody, Jesus Montero is probably the drop. Would you grab one of these dudes?
-Yasmani Grandal
-Rick Porcello
-Mike Leake
-Aaron Cook
-Lucas Harrell
-Luke Hochevar
-Michael Fiers
-Edinson Volquez
-Gavin Floyd
-Pedro Alvarez
-Cody Ross
-Yuniesky Betancourt
-Dexter Fowler
-Kevin Youkilis
-Yoenis Cespedes
-Travis Wood
-Wilin Rosario
-Marco Estrada
-Franklin Morales (on waivers)
-Daisuke Matsuzaka
-Carl Crawford (would DL, then add someone else)
-Alexi Amarista

Anyone on board with ditching Montero to roll the dice on Fiers or Leake?

I'd definitely would grab Crawford and pick up someone else.

As for that someone else, you could pick-up Cespedes, Youk, Leake, Ross, or Fiers. I don't know what to think of Fiers right now. I so much want to grab him myself but I'm afraid of the unknown. I like your rotation but what's to say you won't need another starter if Hughes or Oswalt falters or Matt Moore continues to bounce up-and-down?

Alright, so if I DL Crawford, who else do I add? Fiers, or a guy with a pedigree like Leake?

Or maybe even Travis Wood? And am I safe to finally drop Montero?

I drafted Montero and dropped him in my league a month ago and nobody's picked him back up. Travis Wood is an interesting name. Living in Chicago, I wonder if he's finally living up to his "potential." Personally, I think you're going to have to go with your gut. I like Fiers, Leake, or Wood in that order (right now). Also, like you, I picked up Cashner yesterday.
