Drop Starling Marte? WHIR

Postby majawi85 » Sat Apr 06, 2013 1:26 pm

It's a 10 team 5x5 roto keeper league, and I could use the spot to add in hot players. Should I be dropping Marte or waiting him out? I already have Taveras taking up one bench slot for keeper purposes. Notable players on the WW are: Parra, Mark Reynolds, Iannetta, Flowers. I'm in the need of power, but any offensive would help.

That's kinda how I feel, but I really like the upside of someone like Flowers. I could use the power. Any other opinions?

There is no way I'd drop Marte for Flowers/Reynolds etc.
What is your roster?

Be patient.
You have plenty of power, Seager will start hitting bombs. He had half his homers on the road last year and with a better home field everyone dropping him so soon is IMO impatient.

Thanks. Patience is tough sometimes, haha. I got dropped into the basement today by Dickey and Cishek's terrble performances today. I wouldn't want Dickey on my team save for the fact he was $1 keeper this year for me. I'm having a VERY rough start to the season as far as under performance goes.
