De La Rosa on 3 day rest? Really?

De La Rosa pitched last on Friday 6/7. This is normal rest.

Is it time to cut bait on Willingham? He has been very disappointing this year.

Al,

Depends on your other options but I wouldn’t be ready to flat out drop him. Yeah, the AVG is terrible but he’s still on pace for 27 homers and 84 RBIs.

Zach

Lawrie of Rendon ROS? I’m about ready to just drop Lawrie.

As long as you have a decent enough 3B to hold down the fort until Lawrie comes back, I wouldn’t drop Lawrie to pick up Rendon. When healthy, Lawrie has shown us what he can do. Performance-wise, Rendon is more of an unknown at the MLB level.

Zach

I have Headley. Hopefully he turns it around too. Thanks for the help.

Will either Wacha or Lyons be demoted when Westbrook comes back? Who would you rather have on your roster between the two?

I’d rather have Wacha.

Is it a waste of a move to pick up george springer this week i check everday to see if hes brought up. He has 18hr 50 rbi in double a and the astros of is a joke

Robert,

Totally depends on the league format/size.

Zach

well with Middlebrooks not in the line up his 2nd day back from DL you think hes in jeopardy of losing his starting position? Using Y Gomes to fill in at the CI and have Dominguez at 3B till Hanley can finally play….John Mayberry is available at CI is he worth a look? Arrenado and Rendon were both picked up recently

Not all that concerned about Middlebrooks’ PT.

When Strasburg comes off the DL should I drop Dan Haren, Tyler Skaggs, Bronson Arroyo or JJ Hoover (my only reliever)?

Rob,

I have no idea why you have Hoover on your roster.

Zach

is Viciedo worth a pick up, just dropped in my league…..would drop JD( Hou) or Y gomes

Yes, and I’d lean towards dropping Gomes.

Zach

Hey Zach, I got offered a trade where I send Hunter Pence & Josh Donaldson for Jon Lester & Ian Desmond. 10 team H2H Thoughts?

Justin,

If you can use another quality SP, I’m fine with this.

Zach
