Some guy just dropped Starlin Castro in my league.

I'm set at SS with Reyes, as long as he stays healthy. But that's what scares me. Worth picking up Castro as insurance? Normally it would be an automatic yes, but who do I drop? A few teams packed it in early this year, so by dealing draft picks I've amassed a pretty good offense.

And for those who are going to suggest dropping a pitcher, I'm very low on Ks, ERA and WHIP - hence the MRs I've picked up.

Thoughts?

I don't see a good way to pick him up. LaRoche might be the only guy I would think about dropping but he has been pretty decent the last month or so. I could see wanting Castro just as a backup and would be fine with him over LaRoche except that LaRoche is giving you more production right now.

So it really is more of how you want to build your team. Is production more important than having a replacement in case of an injury?

Thanks Mauddib,

I want him, because I don't trust Reyes to stay healthy, but I can't find an easy way either, especially with my needs in pitching and the way Laroche has been playing. Best I could see is if Braun comes back healthy and cleared of suspension I could drop Laroche (and move Chris Davis to 1B), but that ain't happening in time to pick Castro up now!

Probably moot anyhow, since I am 11 out of 12th in waiver priority (just used mine to grab Rosenthal) and there are lots of guys looking for SS help.

At least you've provided some validation to my roster evaluation.

Cheers,
Gus
