Drop Street or Santana, then add who? (WHIR)

Postby nyr199435 » Fri Aug 12, 2011 8:49 pm

So with Street going on the DL, I have two options: drop Johan Santana who I was stashing for the playoffs (hoping he would play in September), or just drop Street himself. There are a lot of good FA's in our 8-team league, so I'd like to figure it out quickly so I can grab somebody. I'd hate to just drop Santana after waiting on him all this time and have somebody else grab him, but if Street's not going to be out that long it doesn't make sense to really drop him either. Anyway, what would you do? There's still a chance that Santana comes back in September, and if he does he'll be a big boon to my team.

After I figure out what to do, who would you add?
Ichiro Suzuki
Drew Stubbs
Martin Prado
Starlin Castro (leaning toward him)
Alexei Ramirez
Chris Young
Mike Napoli
Carlos Beltran
Matt Wieters
Melky Cabrera
Justin Morneau (could be great if he's back to form)
Desmond Jennings (just dropped, on waivers)

Neftali Feliz (probably makes the most sense with Street out)
Kyle Farnsworth
Ryan Vogelsong
Trevor Cahill
Fernando Salas
Mike Adams
Jake Peavy
Luke Hochevar
Ivan Nova (been a beast so far)

I really appreciate any and all help, and post a link so I can return the favor!

I would drop Street and pick up Feliz, assuming closer earn decent points in your league....Texas is a great team to close for.

Melky is a top 30-ish player this year and has been very consistent....I'm surprised he's not owned....I might drop Freeman for him.

I would also try to stream Leubke's spot depending on matchups.

Help with mine?
