Drop Logan Morrison?

Postby BBonneville » Mon Apr 25, 2011 8:38 am

I just traded a bat for Josh Beckett... leaving me one outfielder or utility spot short because of injury problems...

I'm looking at dropping Logan Morrison. It kills me but I already have Hamilton eating up my 1 DL spot and Morales taking up a bench slot.

Should I drop him and add Cameron Maybin from SD? Jerry Sands? Alex Avila (I already have Russell Martin)? Or do I hold onto Morrison?

I was also thinking about dropping Arroyo after today's start and adding Brandon McCarthy or Zach Britton.

I'd hang on to him. I have him in a couple of my leagues and he is doing pretty well. He will be off the DL sooner rather than later, and hopefully hitting the ball well again. If he starts to flicker off a bit, than I would drop him, but I am hanging on to him personally.

Tough call, but with Morales and Hamilton on the DL already, you have to keep your team competitive. Sands would be a nice speculative play... not so great out of the gate, but having a nice game tonight.

while I do think Morrison can be good, if you have 3 OF with Carlos/Ichiro/Gordon and 2 UT with Alexei and EMPTY then you could suffer.
looks like you could have to drop Morrison. as for who to pick up, maybe Sands. Maybin has potential, but I'm not really a fan of hitters at PETCO. Sands has more power potential. he had some good HR numbers in the minors.
as for pitching. I think I would hang onto Arroyo. not flashy but gets the job done. I wouldn't trust Britton pitching in the AL East. McCarthy is tempting, but history of injuries there. Arroyo is probably safer.
