I have TWO player adds. Team is in the sig. Thinking of dropping Broxton, Buchholz, or Pomeranz. What changes would you make, if any?
Free agents:
Jim Johnson (got closer gig)
Santiago Casilla (does he have the job now?)
Kyle Drabek (tons of potential, has looked great)
Adam LaRoche (instead of Freeman?)
Chipper Jones (backup for Wright)
Cody Ross
Rick Porcello (in line for great season)
Nolan Reimold
Jordan Schafer
Mike Trout (on his way up with Hunter faltering?)
Barry Zito (fluke?)
Bryan LaHair
Alexi Ogando
Jon Jay
Chase Headley
Alejandro de Aza
Tyler Pastornicky (backup for Castro)
Delmon Young
Torii Hunter (on waivers)
Ryan Vogelsong
Mike Minor
Erik Bedard
Ross Detwiler
Brian Shaw
Craig Stammen
Matt Adams (speculative add...have Davis and Freeman, 1B is weak)
Anthony Rizzo (see above)
Brett Jackson (speculative)

I know that's a lot of names, but I will help in return if you post a link. Thanks!!

I think all three names you gave are droppable.

Jim Johnson should be an immediate add. Personally, I would add Vogelsong--he looked good last night, and you definitely want to get some of his stock before it's too late. And I may add a speculative grab of Trout. If you'd rather have a bat for the present, LaRoche is hitting well and will have a lot of ABs coming his way until Morse comes back, which won't be for a long time.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

I'd add Johnson immediately also. You can't leave a closer sitting out there in that format.

I'd also add Castilla in the event that he gets the gig (which seems roughly 50-50). If he does, you're golden. If he doesn't, he perhaps becomes one of your drops next week.

Help on mine?
