I dumped him last week. I have also dumped Bonifacio in all leagues where I have had a semi capable MI option.

I have moved on from Dan Haren. The best case is that he posts a 4.00 ERA and the more likely is worse than that.

I'm a Weeks owner for the first time ever but this is basically what I expected. He stays in the lineup because I need to start 2 of Weeks/Dozier/Tejada/Scutaro/YEscobar.

Perhaps I need to make a buy low offer for Melky in my 24 tm dynasty league. I have filled out my team by grabbing guys like this that don't have much of a long term future. Scutaro/Weeks/Cuddyer/Dejesus are nothing special but they are productive.

Definitely, the upside on Melky is so incredibly low compared to Upton. People drafting Melky so high never made any sort of sense in the first place. Upton will eventually get his HR/SB, it is just a matter of how much AVG comes with it.

I gave up on Eric Hosmer already, no point in keeping a first baseman who can't hit a home run in all of April, especially after how bad he was last year.

He's on the Can't Cut list but I wonder how many people are getting so frustrated with Matt Kemp they have considered canning him if they could? I'm an owner and I haven't got any intention of doing so but good lord, this extended slump is going on longer than I would have expected. Might bench him soon.......

Josh Hamilton. Not cutting him outright, but did trade him for Kershaw. That is more than I expected to get for him.

Why on earth would anyone trade kershaw for Hamilton? I have Hamilton and I would hit the accept button lightning fast if that was offered to me.

To note: I would have happily accepted that trade before the season started as well.

Well, no one is going to drop Matt Kemp, but I don't see a problem in benching him. Start him against LHP and sit him against all RHP. Nothing you can really do with him. If someone was willing to pay fair price, I'd dump him.

I gave up on Haren a couple of weeks ago. I've dropped Moustakas a couple of times already.
