With Carl Crawford and Lawrie coming back from the DL soon I have to drop 2. Brandon Crawford (has been sitting on my bench and is my backup SS to Castro), Rendon, Arcia (who I really like and think will get more RBI opportunities with Willingham out), or Garrett Jones (who has recently hit a couple homers).

It’s a tough one, as there’s a lot to like about all four, but I’d say drop Jones and Arcia, with a big reason being that outfielders in general are more expendable than infielders.

Pujous and Mclouth for Kemp and Trumbo. Fair trade?

Yeah, it’s fair, though at this point I’d rather have the Pujols/McLouth side.

Zach

well I am wondering if I should add a little depth to my bench….dropped Moose the other day to activate Everth and now wondering if he or Chisenhall are worth grabbing? I have 5 guys for Holds and my worst 2 would be Joe Smith who has not done much lately or Pestano who has just been bad this year….any idea on whats happened with him?

Five guys for holds is a bit excessive. I’d drop Smith for Moustakas.

addendum: Is Quentin worth a pick up in 12 team daily league or even A Rod?

All depends on who you’re dropping and your needs.

Hi Zach,
I hope you had a good 4th. Please rate the following OFs for ROS in a 10t, h2h, mixed league: Braun, Harper, Marte, McLouth, Carpenter, Parra, and Fowler.
Thanks.
Rich D.

Harper, Braun, Fowler, Carpenter, Marte, McLouth, Parra. Very tough though.

I Have 1 too many outfielders on my roster who do I drop… Brian Bogusevic, Jason Kubel, Cody Ross, Chris Denorfia or Will Venable

Just took over first and I’m about to get Lawrie and Fowler back. My of is still weak and my pitching and third base are really deep. I proposed a trade of Pedro Alvarez and latos for mccutchen. He is on the fence, so I was thinking of adding a closer to sweeten the deal. I lose saves every week so I think losing the closer wouldn’t really effect my team negatively at all. What do you think roll with what I have or

Zac,

I actually think that your original offer is a fair one. Maybe I’d be willing to add a low-end closer, but definitely not a top-15 type.

Zach
