Yeah sure. Drop Bourjos. You got the roster flexibility with Wiggy and Size and i never usually keep more than 1 Offensive BN player anyways as it's far more valuable to have an extra start or two (even if you're just playing the matchups) than it is to have a few extra AB's from a sub par replacement like Bourjos...and if one of your main dudes went down you wouldnt be too psyched to start him and he has no trade

Take a shot on Holland and if it doesnt work out, you can use that as your revolving door spot..which is always good to have one...dont waste valuable real estate on poo poo players.

I can't imagine that he's your best option in a 12 team... but if ur high on him, sure go ahead and drop Bourjos like somebody else suggested. Word of advice though if your gonna take a gamble anyway since Holland is far from a sure thing.... BEDARD! Looking amazing and says he is pitching pain free for the first time in 3 seasons and if... IF he can stay healthy he is easily a top 30 SP, maybe better. And I bet he is sitting on the wire in your league.

I'm a Rangers homer, and I like Holland, but it's not even 100% sure he's going to get a rotation spot at the moment. I find it unlikely that anyone is going to snatch him off the WW in the next few days before you can DL Strasburg. I personally would more likely roster a Bedard at this point, for now.
