Grab K Rod, drop Axford?

Postby ron paul for pres » Wed Jul 18, 2012 10:33 am

12 team, H2H, 5x5, non-keeper

Axford finally got demoted. Leaning toward grabbing K Rod and dropping Axford. Is it worth it at all to hang onto to Axford and drop someone else? Only other option would be Bauer. Bauer has been flat awful lately, but has tons of potential.

1B - Miggy

I would probably drop Bauer. I might end up being in the minority here but he pitches in a bad ballpark and he is walking people way too much (not only in the majors but he was having this problem in the minors as well). While Bauer will likely be a very good SP at some point, in a non-keeper league I wouldn't trust him this year. With K-Rod having his own struggles, you don't have enough depth to drop Axford just in case he gets the job back.

Axford should be closing again by beginning of August.
