Who to drop? WHIR

Postby BronXBombers51 » Tue Apr 10, 2012 9:56 am

12 Teams - 6x6 (Normal plus OPS & Losses) - Rotisserie - 4-8 Keepers per year

C- Wilson Ramos
1B- Miguel Cabrera
2B- Ian Kinsler
3B- Pablo Sandoval
SS- Troy Tulowitzki
OF- Josh Hamilton
OF- Jayson Werth
OF- Torii Hunter
Utl- Jesus Montero
Utl- Matt Joyce

B- Angel Pagan
B- John Mayberry Jr.
B- J.D. Martinez
B- Colby Rasmus
DL- Michael Morse

SP- Felix Hernandez
SP- Matt Cain
RP- Sergio Santos
RP- Rafael Betancourt
P- Brett Myers
P- Jonathan Broxton
P- Alfredo Aceves
P- Joel Peralta

B- Brandon Beachy
B- John Danks
B- Erik Bedard
DL- Scott Baker

Morse comes off the DL (presumably) this week and I need to drop someone. At this point I'm thinking it has to be one of Peralta or Mayberry. Rodney seems to be getting the save chances in TB and Philly is having a tough time getting anything going offensively. Who would you cut?

Or do I cut both and pick up one of the following players as well? (Looking at perhaps a MI to fill-in on off days.)

Cut Mayberry now (you have plenty of OF where you don't need to see if this guy pans out). I'd hold onto Peralta a while longer...

I'd cut Rasmus or Mayberry. Rasmus could be fashioning himself a shorter and shorter leash, and Mayberry (who I love), will not get enough ABs to warrant keeping over Morse (although I think they're very similar players).

I'd hold onto the RPs, especially Peralta. Fernando Rodney sucks, and it's only a matter of time.

mayberry wont be playing everyday, and when howard comes back his ab's will be even more sparse. Id drop him, especially since him and morse are both 1B,OF.
