Drop Cespedes in non-keeper league? (WHIR)

Postby zyzzbrah34 » Sat Jul 06, 2013 4:12 pm

In a non-keeper/roto league, would I be crazy to drop Cespedes? I tried shopping him around and interest is low. He's been slumping bad for a while and killing my average. I need to drop someone so that I can activate Anibal Sanchez off the DL. I considered dropping Rosario or Gordon but they are starting to pick things up and I'd rather not drop a RP because I need the saves.

I'm hesitant to do that. He's unproven but raking in the stats already

I assume you can just leave Annibal on the DL for a while, right?

Try selling one of your two catchers!

Annibal's a great SP, but it's a shoulder; it won't kill you to have him still on the DL for a start or two to make sure he's really back. In the meantime, you should be able to deal Rosario, with Cespedes or Gordon, for a better OF.

I've tried but no one wants to trade right now. Also, ESPN won't let me make any trades until I activate Anibal.

If I had to drop someone, who would it be?

With 5 OF and only 1 C, I drop Rosario.

There's so many good C this year, more than I can ever recall, so I'd risk it.
