AL Only - Who to drop?

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

AL Only - Who to drop?

Postby BigAhnold » Sat Jun 21, 2014 12:58 pm

Got some guys coming off the DL, so need to make some moves.

AL only, 4x4, keeper, 10 teams, $260 budget, team in signature. Currently in second, so playing for 2014.

Hitting:

Drop one of the following (players with "2014" are lost at the end of this year, so their salary does not matter):

Swisher (2014)
Chris Carter (2014)
Lorenzo Cain (2014)
Daniel Nava $5
Kyle Blanks $5
Austin Jackson $12

My head says Blanks, as he has only been playing every 4 days or so, but my heart says every time he is in he does something good. Unlike, oh, say, Swisher and Carter.

Pitching:

I have David Robertson and had been holding Shawn Kelley as Robertson insurance.

Drop one:

Sergio Santos $6
Joba Chamberlain $5
Shawn Kelley $5
Drew Hutchison $5

My head says Kelley, but am still stinging from the Robertson DL stint. But Bettances may have leapfrogged Kelley.

All help appreciated.

Blanks or Nava.

Kelley is fine to drop but if you want him as insurance send Santos packing. No way he gets saves again.

Blanks is dealing with a calf injury, he's fine to drop. If anything happens to Robertson, Betances will move into the closer role. Flip a coin between Kelley and Santos.
