Uggla? On pace for 30 hr with a crappy avg. did you expect something different?

Giving up on Uggla returning to the numbers he posted in a marlins uniform. Not nearly as bad of an average and always above .800 ops. I should have been more clear on that.

Bear in mind with Uggla, he has a track record at times of being one of those binge players who gets a disproportionate % of his production during a hot streak.

Tomorrow I am kicking Hosmer off the plane without a parachute. Next up is Jesus Montero...the wrong Montero.

Well, good thing I didn't drop Morneau, he's been on fire lately, all singles and doubles but he's driving in a ton of runs.

Only guys I've dropped after I drafted them so far are JJ Putz, Rick Porcello, Mike Fiers and Gordon Beckham. I tend to hold onto guys pretty long.

Paul Konerko, getting real close to letting him go.

Yeah I was surprised to hear a podcast the other day that suggested Morneau wasn't worth owning. He had a slow first 2 weeks but he is a must own in almost any format. He is still a lower tier 1B but he isn't a bench guy.

I dropped Espinosa and Ike Davis in my 10 teamer. Hosmer was also dropped in that league. It's a keeper, but none of them have been picked up yet.

Who has been the right Montero this year? Ugly start for Miguel and Jesus.

The biggest name I have dropped is Haren and that is in a start limit, no move limit roto league where mediocre K/9 guys don't have a ton of value imo since you can play matchups so much. Other than that it is guys like Hicks, Ackley, Quentin who were end game types. I dropped Parra in one league when I picked up Arrenado, it was a no bench league and it was drop Parra or Moustakas. Mous had a good week so I think I chose the correct one.
