Who to drop Stacked Team in 8 team league

Postby nickels2012 » Sat May 10, 2014 1:51 am

I am short a closer (Jason Grilli was my third but he is out injured) and I will need to drop a bat when Alex Cobb or Mat Latos returns.

Who do I drop???

I have added and re-added Hosmer i feel like he is my most expendable player. I like having at least 5 OF and Hamilton provides steals, if Craig was just a 1B I would like Hosmer over him.

I just dropped Doug Fister after horrendous start tonight.

Would you re-add Fister and drop anybody?

I hate having so many bench bats.

That is alot of bats on the bench... They are all quality guys.. anyway you can make a trade with them?
If not I think Hamilton is most expendable... Sure he steals but not much else

Im trying. I got Machado Hosmer and Heyward all from the same dumb team that dropped all 3. I guess his strategy was to try and ride hot streaks and not keep injured guys. Fister and Cobb was his too.

I did not see Heyward on your team... I would say he is probably the worst of the best out of what you have, atleast Hamilton steals so if anybody I would say him

Someone else dropped Heyward and I figured he was really good.

Yahoo has him rated top 50 rest of the season - Hosmer 94 Craig 104 Hamilton 140ish

I would go Heyward then Hamilton, but what you might want to try is packaging 2 or 3 of the good bats for a really nice piece that you want like a SP do that you do not have to go to waviers, Overpay for someone you want and need, I mean if you might drop them anyway at face value it may look like you are overpaying but in the long run you are not

Agree with Jon on this. Use those guys you grabbed from FA to get one elite producer.
