Upgrade? Need Help.....Who to Drop. WHIR

Postby etl1692 » Mon May 20, 2013 1:54 pm

Is there an upgraded you can see by adding Michael Cuddyer (1B,OF) to my roster? If so who would you drop and why? I know Cuddyer was pretty hot, but will he continue? He is cleared off Waivers May 23rd...........

1.) I personally don't want too many batters on my bench, so I will likely be dropping a batter for Cuddyer.
2.) Some may suggest B.J. Upton but Im waiting for him to bounce back! (Am I delirious? He looks awful :-t )

*Indicates Keeper
Batting:
C: Miguel Montero
1B: Joey Votto *

I think he's a better own than either Lowrie or Seager. What SS are available? Those guys are both pretty cold. I think I'd rather go with a Dee Gordon or Stephen Drew over both of them.

Look at mine?

I'd take Cuddyer on my bench all day over Upton OR Swisher. Upton looks f'n lost, and I don't expect a bounce-back. But if you could throw him in as the back half of a trade, try that first...some people still believe in his name.

I don't like Cuddyer over any of your current players. I think he will slow down and players like Upton and Seager will just improve.

please help

Trade BJ for a bag of balls and add Cuddyer.
I'd be even tempted to make that switch honestly. I don't see any improvement.
