Down to the wire....
time to drop under-producing stars for hot schmotatoes, right?
Evan Longoria out for Chris Nelson (with the Rox heading home)?
Jay Bruce out for Aoki or Marte (with Bruce slumping)?
It looks like Trout may have hit the proverbial rookie wall. I'm having a lot of trouble dropping him.
Hamilton still out, but Giancarlo due back today.
The WW includes Alonso, Nelson, Aoki, Marte, Howard, Des Jennings, Wieters, Maxwell, McLouth....
My inclination is to pick up Nelson, Marte and/or Aoki, and possibly Jennings. I'll do my best to keep a few of the big names on the bench but it's going to come at the expense of SP/RP's.
Sure lose Longoria for Nelson, he's just average though, he's not going to get you power or speed... Bruce for Aoki...
