Hey Zach,
It looks like Starling Marte won’t be playing regularly until the end of the month. My first round bye ends this Sunday and the second round of the playoffs start Monday. If I drop him, here is what is available: Moss, Swisher, Gattis, Calhoun, Lake, Nava, Brantley, Schierholz, Pagan, Jay, and Bourn. I do have the option of picking LaRoche (who got hot as soon as I dropped him, of course), Matt Adams, Lind, or Loney for 1B and then move Agon from 1B to OF. Thoughts?
Thanks.
Rich D.

Depends on what categories you’re looking for but overall value-wise I like Adams.

Zach

The tough part is this league has 13 offensive categories and 15 pitching categories. I would have no problem dropping Marte, adding Adams and put him at 1B, and move Agon to the OF.

You know what, I think Swisher has to be picked up right now. He’s red hot!

Zach
