Keep Rios. He's a much safer bet to produce.

I cut Rios earlier this season and got him back when it looked like he was heating up. I'm considering dropping him again, but don't know if I'd do it for D. Brown just yet. With your situation, I might be more inclined to drop Pagan or Sizemore, move Wright to DL, and then add Brown, but that's just another option...

Personally, I feel like I've given Rios enough of a leash. What makes me sick is that I took him in the draft instead of Stubbs, hoping that Stubbs would drop to me on my next pick. Of course, he didn't and Rios has sucked big time.

Stubbs would've been nice, but why does it have to be either or? I'm not sold by a long shot on D Brown, even though he may put up some numbers now that he's up; but as well, my gut (same one got peralta and joyce in mid-april over s. drew and Hamilton's DL) wants to spit out rios and never speak of him again.

i can't cite any numbers or anything, but isn't there a Gomes out there on the WW or a Damon or a Maybin to aquire? sure Damon'll get you some time on the DL (or at least more frequent days off) but he's also going to get you HR's and SB's for a team that may well be battling it out early for a lackluster AL East. Just sayin.
