You have ADD and you have no idea how this sentence will end because you’re already reading the comments. You drafted Hanley and traded him for Bonifacio. You’re glad Marco Scutaro has 3rd base eligibility so you can drop Chris Davis. Webb is lucky he was DL’d because you were about to drop him for Kevin Millwood. You’re trigger finger is itching and only Nyjer Morgan can scratch it. You’re also potentially losing your league in April.
Don’t drop guys that just happen to have a bad one or two weeks to start the season. In general, anyone that you drafted in the first ten rounds, should be untouchable in April. You need to let your Clydesdales carry your beer. Maybe you bench one that is severely struggling, but don’t fall victim to Attention Deficit Drops. Sure, Alexei Ramirez is not doing anything for you right now, but you don’t let him go for “Current Hot 2nd Baseman.”
I realize this isn’t as easy as it sounds. The trouble lies in the fact that a lot of guys burst on the scene in April, never cool off and can carry your fantasy baseball team to a championship. So you don’t want to sit on your hands (especially if you have gas). If you took a flier on Asdrubal for your MI spot, lose him for the “Current Hot 2nd Baseman.” That kind of move shouldn’t hurt you as long as you can go back to Asdrubal if he gets hot (hot Asdrubal — hehe). Usually Utility, MI, 5th outfielder spots and catcher, if you punted, are the most flexible. In general, if you think someone will just sit there on waivers if you drop them, then lose them for the player who is on fire. You can always go back when the hot player cools off. There’s a fine line between reacting and panicking. Walk the line, Johnny.
