either Werth, Hosmer, Jim Henderson (RP), or Perkins (RP)?

Standard yahoo head-to-head league, non keeper, 20 man rosters with 2 DL spots

I was contemplating picking up Morse and dropping one of the players listed above. Werth's production has been decent, but at 33 yrs old his recent ankle injury and tweaked hamstring issues are a concern. He plays for a better Nationals team but in my mind he and Morse are essentailly the same player with Morse being slightly younger/more HR potential/and a lower AVG/with the same high K/AB ratio.

Hosmer has been killing me this year, just like he killed me last year. I waited all season for him to turn it around but he never did...and now here I am in 2013 facing the same dillema. Cut bait now or wait it out. He didn't cost me anything with a relatively low draft pick but his production is miserable and I don't know if I wanna wait on him any more. I also already have Howard, Reynolds, and a mending Texeira serving as 1Bs. Still Hos is only 24, and with the warm weather coming will the power finally show up?

Lastly theres Henderson and Perkins. My closer situation was crappy from the start after losing Motte right away, but I've stabilized it with Jansen and Bailey. We can start 3 relievers so I've been rotating Henderson and Perkins out based on matchups. Henderson seems to have a good hold on the closer role right now, but Axford and his contract are still lurking. Perkins gets some S's but he plays for the woeful Twins and his ERA and K/BB ratio isn't anything great. So I'd feel comfortable maybe ditching one of them for Morse.

Morse was dropped in my league right after his injury and subsequent struggles. He seems to be pushing past that now and returning to form. The fact that he's able to jack so many HRs, even at Safeco, has me excited to see how well he does when the weather really heats up. So what do you guys think??? Please let me know ASAP cuz I'm sure the guy that dropped him is thinking about giving him another shot. Thanks in advance and leave ur links so I can help you out.

I would add Morse he's eligible at both 1b and OF? Easy over Hosmer if you ask me.
Maybe trade BJ Upton for a SP upgrade after this deal.

Thanks for your input MadDog, i appreciate the help. I'm kinda leaning that way myself, swapping Morse for Hos. After holding onto him and defening him all of last season I don't think I want to spend the summer 0f 2013 doing the same thing, lol. He's soooo young, and seemingly has soooo much potential...but I can't wait for him to realize his potential. Its a non-keeper league and Morse is hitting HRs now and I think he'll be a leader in the AL in that category come September. Thanks again
