Hunter Pence and Jason Kubel were just dropped and is now on waivers. I have the 9th claim, so it's doubtful I get either. Are they worth trying to grab anyway though? Who would you drop?

Also, below are the other FAs of interest. I think I might have too many bench bats, but there aren't exactly a lot of good SP options. Do you see any changes to make? Who would you drop/add?
-Corey Hart
-Jose Altuve
-Chase Headley
-Mike Olt
-Carlos Gomez
-Ryan Ludwick
-Torii Hunter
-Justin Morneau
-Wandy Rodriguez
-Ricky Romero
-Ervin Santana
-Jeff Samardzija
-Grant Balfour (in case Cook loses the closer gig)
-Steve Cishek
-Ross Detwiler
-Daniel Straily (on waivers until tomorrow)
-Ben Revere
-Patrick Corbin
-Brett Jackson

My first order of business for your team would be to trade Carlos Santana while he's hot, considering you have Posey and I'm assuming Santana just sits on your bench. If you can come up with a 2 for 1 deal that involves Santana, then you'd make room for a roster spot and pick up one of those guys.

Between Kubel and Pence I like Kubel.

Completely agree, could not have said it better myself. Def trade Santana while you can, there is no need to have two catchers. I would also consider trading Rutledge since you have Castro. You aren't going to play both SS's.

Also, def grab Kubel or Pence. They are both worth owning, I like Kubel more though.

Appreciate the advice fellas. I'll look around, but the only reason I have Santana is because somebody dropped him a few weeks ago...I added him when he started hitting again. I've only had him for about a week now, so if somebody wanted him they probably could have had him. Plus, he's my only backup for 1B, and with Tex hurt last week he was pretty good to have around, and he's been doing better than Tex since Tex came back anyway. But I'll see if anyone needs a catcher. Maybe I can package him with Cruz for a premier OF, or deal him for straight up pitching depth.

You play with morons ....

I prefer Pence to Kubel, but both are obviously worth pick ups. Agree with the trade advice above as well.

Do not drop Minor.

He is a highly touted first round pick that is coming into form. Been stellar his last several outings.

I like Kubel, tried pretty hard to trade for him earlier in the season but couldnt get a deal done. Id drop Minor as well to do so, also consider trading Rutledge, I have him too and he has been doing pretty phenomenally in the HR category so far but im expecting some regression, I believe he had 13 homers in 87 games for AA this year before being called up, which is still good but not anywhere near what he has been doing. Since you have Castro, trade Rutledge for pitching depth or really whatever you feel like you need, there seems to be a lot of people in your league who are dropping fairly valuable players, im sure it wouldnt be hard to get a good deal out of one of them.

input on mine? viewtopic.php?t=451480
