I think you should pick up Manny Machado & drop Chris Johnson immediately especially since you're in a keeper league.

Help with mine?

I agree and thank you, but its so hard when Chris Johnson is batting .400+

This shouldnt be stressing me out, but it is LOL. This player will most likely play the bench unless hot. Given that its KEeper league, MAchado is the guy... no?

This is tough... Even though it's a keeper league, I don't see who you'd keep Machado over at the end of the season. That said, Machado has far more upside than Johnson this year (though at least the Braves have confirmed that Johnson will still play every day once Freeman is back). If Seager was hitting well, I'd say go for it... As it is I think you can't be faulted for going w/ the higher upside player. At the very least, you know Johnson's batting average is going to come way down.

Chris Johnson is hitting over .400 (in a platoon). If they make him face lefties, he'll be exposed, which they are about to do. I may try to wait until after this week (Johnson @ Colorado and then @ Detroit, which means he may get some extra DH at bats). Overall, though, I'd drop Johnson.
