Hey Zach,
I have Starling Marte on the DL. I was able to get Coco Crisp to fortify the OF. I noticed that someone dropped David Wright because he went on the DL. My playoffs start on 9/9 and end on 9/29. Would it make more sense to drop Marte now, pick up Wright, and keep Wright in the DL slot because he would return during my playoffs?
Thanks.
Rich D.

Yeah, I think that’s a pretty safe gamble. It sounds like Wright will be returning before Marte, but regardless of what happens, Wright is simply the better fantasy player, so I’d rather use that DL spot for him anyway.

What are your thoughts on these two trades I got Brandon Belt and Brandon Phillips for Billy Hamilton and I needed to drop or trade for a pitcher so I traded Cody Asche for Andrew Cashner. Good deal or bad deal? Thanks

I’m in an NL only 5X5 roto keeper league where Cashner is 3 and Asche is 8 but I’m not keeping either and Billy Hamilton is 4 but I may not have kept him

Well, if that’s the case, doing these deals makes perfect sense to me.

Zach
