I have to drop two of the following players to get my roster at the allowed player limit. 16 team league, cats scoring hitting (R, HR, RBI, SB, BB, K, TB, AVG) pitching (W, L, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP, QS)
C Ryan Doumit (Min - C,LF,RF) 1B Ike Davis (NYM - 1B) 2B Emilio Bonifacio (Tor - 2B,CF) 3B Evan Longoria (TB - 3B) SS Stephen Drew (Bos - SS) LF Starling Marte (Pit - LF) CF B.J. Upton (TB - CF) RF Andre Ethier (LAD - RF) Util Colby Rasmus (Tor - CF) BN Pedro Alvarez (Pit - 3B) BN Dee Gordon (LAD - SS) BN Brett Gardner (NYY - LF) BN Nick Markakis (Bal - RF)
SP Stephen Strasburg (Was - SP) SP Jon Lester (Bos - SP) RP Kenley Jansen (LAD - RP) RP Huston Street (SD - RP) P Mariano Rivera (NYY - RP) P Shelby Miller (StL - SP) P Tim Lincecum (SF - SP) BN Tyler Skaggs (Ari - SP) BN Gerrit Cole (Pit - SP) BN Jake Odorizzi (TB - SP) BN Joakim Soria (Tex - RP)
I'm not sure what to do, I'm really worried about my starting pitching, which is why I went prospect heavy there, likely going to have to drop at least one though. Bad news is I'm not going to have any time to do 2 for 1 type trades before I submit my roster, so I have no choice but to just drop two players flat out, and I really like all my guys which is making this difficult.lol
I agree with Odorizzi. His ceiling isn't all that high to begin with. He just projects well as an MLB starter. Soria makes some sense, but I would be more inclined to dump Cole. He's unlikely to help much (if at all) in 2013. If not him then Skaggs. I just don't think that he is very special.
Those would be the two I'd probably end up dropping. I could see dropping Gordon as well if you want to keep one of those pitchers, but Drew is nothing special either.
Agree with this. Thought about Gordon as well but he could at least give you SB's although I don't think he will see enough playing time, it's just that he at least has something to bring to the table which those two SP can't really say.

Thanks for the replies, I think I have a pretty good idea of who I'm dropping. Just wanna say it won't be Cole or Gordon, just if it were any other type of league sure I'll probably get rid of Gordon since he's coming off the bench for now, but since it's dynasty I feel he still is going to hold a lot of value (plus he's rumored to be on the trading block so his playing situation could change).
And about Cole, I don't trust my pitching staff, haha. And it's not like I could pick someone up from waivers, this is a 16 team league, which means 16 pitching staffs, the FA pool ain't looking too good. If Cole sits on my bench til late into the season, it'll suck but I have to look ahead and take chances on pitching prospects to get my staff going in the right direction.
Thanks again for the replies and @Brainstorm I replied to your thread.
