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

I've got the 3rd spot on Waiver claims. A guy in my league dropped Andre Ethier. It is not a keeper league and I'm not huge on Ethier b/c of his lineup position. Should I take a chance, see if I can get him in Free Agency or is he too valuable to not put a claim in on?

I'd claim him... Manny's coming back, and that brings out the best in Ethier.

Seriously, get a better league. That guy should be de-balled for dropping Ethier with Manny coming back.

Yeah, I'd say Ethier>Blalock going forward, even with the homeruns tonight. Just picked Blalock as someone I'd potentially drop for Ethier. Your team's hitting is solid either way.

I'd lose one of your catchers for Ethier.
