Okay, so here's the deal. Standard Yahoo! 12 team 5x5 H2H.

C- VMartDL
1st- Miggy Cabrera
2nd- Kelly Johnson
3rd- Chipper Jones
SS- Ryan Theriot
OF- Matt Holliday
OF- Hunter Pence
OF- Milton Bradley
Util- Conor Jackson
BN- Jay Bruce
BN- Edgar Renteria
DL- Ryan Church

SP- John Lackey
SP- Justin Verlander
RP- George Sherrill
RP- Brendan Morrow
P- Solomon Torres
P- Aaron Harang
P- Dustin McGowan
BN- Joe Saunders
BN- Ted Lilly
BN- J.J. PutzDL

My problem is, I have Church occupying my 1 DL slot, VMart down and the need to add a catcher to replace him, and J.J. Putz down, and Morrow already in his slot but no DL space to stash Putz either. I think my starting pitching is strong enough to survive with Putz on the bench, but I can't just not start a catcher every day. I don't want to drop Church because Bradley will brake down eventually, and be very droppable but until he cools down, I can't let him go. Bruce is also a question mark, and I expect him to continue to come back to earth. I shopped him around, but didn't get any bites. I can't just let him go for a catcher, though.

So do I drop Church to make room for VMart to make room for a catcher? He (Chruch) seems like the best candidate, given a recovery from his post concussion syndrome, to perform the best over the rest of the year among the three. Or do I drop Renteria? I've sort of been leaning that way. I could bet on Theroit, who I need for speed and runs anyway, and let Renteria go for one of the following:

Chris Synder
Miguel Olivio
Dioner Navarro
Rod Barajas
Chris Ianetta
Gerald Laird

...thoughts?

In a 12 team 3 OF league, Ryan Church is an easy drop. Same with Renteria in a league without an MI.

Drop either or both.

I've stuck w/ Snyder all year in one league and he's been adequate. I'd gamble on Navarro if you need average and Olivo if you need power...
