I will need to clear two roster spots + more very soon. Any thoughts? Barring any injuries further, here's the sitch:
-Machado can be dropped when Papi returns (i hope on Sunday) -Pagan can be dropped when Hanson returns (supposedly Aug 15) -Who to drop when Bonifacio returns? -Who to drop when Bautista returns?
It seems I'd have to drop Greg Holland for one of those last two, which is bad enough. But THEN what do I do? As is, I don't want to drop anyone further.

Yeah I would try to make a deal with someone. If that fails, I would keep Bonifacio on the DL unless you really need steals. Sometimes I keep players in my DL slots just so other owners can't take them. Even when they're playing, I keep them on the DL until I need to make a transaction.
First of all, that might be the greatest fantasy baseball team I have ever seen. I hope you are winning your league by a lot. Secondly, as everyone else has said, try a 2 for 1 trade first to add one more stud to your team. If that doesn't work, I would look at Fister and Lincecum, but only if you think Bonifacio will provide more value than either of those two. Otherwise, I might drop Bonifacio.
