In an NL only 5×5 league who should I drop when Cashner comes back? Lincecum, Colon or Koehler? I’m leaning towards Lincecum. Just want your thoughts.

Also when Matt Cain comes back who do you drop?

Or Henderson Alvarez, thanks!

Agreed. Timmy has been an absolute mess this year.

Which one should I drop for Gregory Polanco; Nate Schierholtz or Kole Calhoun? 10 tm h2h points league.

Schierholtz. We pretty much know who he is at this point while Calhoun carries far more upside.

Zach

Can’t believe i added Gallardo instead of H Alvarez!! Kill me now fantasy gods!

Frankie,

You should have followed my Two-Start Pitcher Notes advice!

Zach,
I’m in a 6×6 Head-to-Head league. I was offered Howie Kendrick and Adam Eaton, and I give him Pablo Sandoval and Marte. Our daily lineup includes a 2b/SS flex position. I have Pedroia, Villar and Asdrubal. I have Votto and Beltran coming off the DL soon with Trumbo on the DL too. I can slot Todd Frazier in Pablo’s spot. Is the trade fair? Villar and Asdrubal have been disappointments.

Thanks,
Mike

Face value, I’m not a huge fan of the trade, but it does sound better when factoring in your specific situation. I don’t necessarily view Asdrubal as being a disappointment but Kendrick would certainly be a significant upgrade over Villar at MI. I’d still take Marte over Eaton ROS, but considering the players you have coming off the DL and the fact that Frazier is a more than adequate 3B replacement, the MI upgrade makes this trade worth it.

Zach

Thanks always Zach!

Hey Zach. I’ve got to drop one of these outfielders. Kemp markakis ethier a.jackson j.lake what would you do

It’s close between Ethier and Lake but I’d drop Ethier. Lake contributes in more categories. Ethier is fairly one-dimensional, with RBI being his biggest asset.
