In your position I'd keep Frazier and move Beltre for any of those guys and if you get one of those arms then it won't make much difference if Hammel stutters a bit.

You guys seem to be much more bullish on Frazier than me. No worries about this production dropping?

Going forward my worry factor between Frazier/Beltre is about even give me upside of the stolen bases Frazier has provided.

I think I'm going to sit Cobb and Stroman, so I expect one of them to throw a shutout.

I'm throwing the kitchen sink out there today between my two leagues. Lets hope it's not raining(offense) on everyone's BBQ. I know, I'm so clever. ;-7

I can see Cobb and Simon cancelling each other out in the ratio department so not quite the kitchen sink, why don't you sit Simon just to make it interesting. ;-)

RE: Frazier

I don't believe he's going to keep up this average, but a .260 hitter with 25 HR and 20 SB is still pretty good. And since he's been hitting so well, he's earned a spot near the top of the order, which means the counting stats go up due to having more PA. 20 SB might be a stretch, but he's been pretty consistent all year with the steals and maybe being near the top of the order is giving him more incentive/opportunity to steal. So basically even if he reverts to his old self, just the fact that he's getting 12% more plate appearances makes a huge difference, anywhere from 15 to 35 extra R+RBI per season based on that lineup change alone.
