the name that jumps out to me would be McLouth.
I don't think anyone else is worth dropping.

you could maybe even do something else with Cobb, depending on how many DL spots your league has. if you have more than 1, drop (whoever) for Cobb today. he is pitching today so you wont have him for today. but pick him up today, put him in a DL spot, then add another offensive player. you wont have to drop that offensive player until it;s time for Cobb's next start.

I was thinking along the same lines in dropping McClouth, but he's one of my main SB's producers. Without him I would probably be weak in that category, so I'm not sure. When I try to click your link it gives me a message saying "You are not authorized to view this forum". Sorry, I'll try again later though.

The only one I see that might be worth dropping is McLouth, and the only reason I would is if he is just sitting on your bench most of the season.

I had a thread this morning, but then I deleted the thread. I'm still not sure I want to even do the trade I was thinking about.

Would Cobb be an upgrade over some guys on my staff though? Like Beachy, Bailey, Liriano or Holland? And other than wins Sabathia has been crap, is he droppable?

I honestly would seriously consider dropping Sabathia. He has alot of tough match ups the rest of the season. I would still drop McLouth first, but if you don't want to, Sabathia would be my second choice.

Drop McLouth if you haven't already. I personally would hold on to Sabathia, at least over the next couple of starts to gauge whether he starts throwing any better.
