Please offer suggestions on who I can replace David Wright with: Aramis Ramirez, Chipper Jones (saw a note that he may have strained his oblique today), DeRosa, Mike Lowell, or Gordon Beckham.
I’m also toying with dropping BJ Upton for either Votto, Tori Hunter, Nelson Cruz, Justin Upton, Adam Jones, or Adian Gonzalez. I have Kemp and Rollins helping out with stolen bases.

Thanks!

Is it time to finally cut bait with Johnny Cueto? The guy has been soundly battered for a number of outings now.

DreamTeam,

This has to be at most an 8 team league. Just too many good choices. Among the 3Bs, I’ll go with A-Ram. He’s the only one who is a legit elite option. Injuries have been the big issue with him this year but he’s back now and I expect him to continue putting up great numbers in both the average and power departments.
Considering the quality of available bats, if you feel you’re in good shape in steals I have no problem with you dropping Upton in a non-keeper. Hunter would be the guy I’d pick up. He’s been solid all year and can at least make up some of Upton’s steals. Adrian is awfully tempting too…as is Votto…and Jones…and Cruz. (Sorry, just can’t believe all these players are on the wire!) Go with Torii.

texigander,

Yes, in a non-keeper I say enough is enough. Cueto hasn’t strung together two quality starts in a row since mid-June. In my book, that’s waiver wire material.
