DL Issues... Who to drop. Who to stash. Who to add! WHIR

Postby etl1692 » Tue Jul 19, 2016 7:48 pm

Was hoping to stash Pence and Brantley, but now it seems like both are having setbacks. I'm ready to drop both if not maybe one of them because its getting ridiculous. Harvey will then be in my one eligible DL spot as he will be my keeper with Sale next year. Are any of these free agents worth a grab?

Why would you keep Harvey? His type of injury is far worse historically than TJ surgery. Only keeping 5, he is not worth it imo as you already have Sale, Rizzo, Bogus, Cespedes, Betts and Story. If you need to keep a second pitcher, I would keep Salazar over him at this point. I would trade Harvey for whatever I could get right now and be done with him.

As to Pence and Brantley...Pence's set back is very minor...he is definitely worth keeping. Brantley can go. I said it before...I have no faith he can stay on the field at this point.

I would grab Saunders over the likes of Puig (what people see in him is beyond me).

It's hard to drop a Pence or Brantley I know. I own Brantley in multiple leagues and I'm about done with him. This year just has the makings of a complete write off for him. I think I'd give it another week see how his progress is and then make a decision. When he's healthy he's a top 15 fantasy OF which is better than Pence. That's what makes it such a difficult decision.

Estrada should not be on the WW, his #'s the past 2 seasons have been remarkable. I'd scoop him up in a heartbeat. I'd prefer him over McCarthy for sure.
As for the batters I like Grichuk who's finally starting to show some signs of life. Also Davis has had a good season in OAK but he's a liability in leagues that penalize strikeouts.

Thanks guys. I think I need to drop Harvey... I'm in first place and my time is NOW!

with that being said....

I dropped Brantley DL for Randal Grichuk (I'll give him a try) It was between him or Michael Saunders...... thoughts Grichuk or Saunders?

I moved Pence to my DL spot

I dropped Harvey for Marco Estrada who is on waivers, so I am using my waiver spot (3). I hope it doesn't bite me in the ass, but I hardly use my waivers.


Thoughts?!?!? Thanks guys leave a link I will respond!

If you need another SP at some point Matt Moore is worth a look.
