Need help with all of my DL'd players. Who to drop?

Postby losapher11 » Fri Jul 13, 2012 9:39 pm

My league is a non-keeper roto with the basic 5x5 stats. I currently have 5 guys who are on the DL and 4 of them are coming back fairly soon. I like almost everyone on my team and am not sure who to keep/drop. Also, I am in desperate need of steals (last place by a little bit) and am looking to make a trade for someone that would help me with that, maybe Michael Bourn or Mike Trout.

Here is my roster:
C Buster Posey
1B Eric Hosmer
2B Trevor Plouffe
3B Alex Rodriguez
SS Alexei Ramirez
CI Aramis Ramirez
MI Dan Uggla
OF Hunter Pence
OF Alex Rios
OF Corey Hart
OF Austin Jackson
OF Matt Joyce (DL)
Ut David Freese
Bn Carl Crawford (DL)
DL Dustin Pedroia
DL Troy Tulowitzki

P Fernando Rodney
P Addison Reed
P Casey Janssen
P Tom Wilhelmsen
P Jon Lester
P Bobby Parnell
P Johnny Cueto
P Gio Gonzalez
P Johan Santana
Bn Vance Worley
Bn Trevor Bauer
DL Roy Halladay

Joyce could be back by Wednesday or Thursday. It doesn't seem to be a good idea to drop a useful player just to get those 3 games or so from a waiver wire player. I'd just wait until you get someone back and are at full strength.

Realize that Trout'll cost you an enormous haul...

Oh no I meant that once Halladay and Pedroia get back off of the DL I'll have too many players on my roster and be forced to drop at least 2 players.

Okay. Well, you have the ammo to make a trade. Look for someone who's struggling, then see if you can offer a good package for someone. (Although, Crawford should help you some with steals.)
