billy butler

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

Someone dropped him........ same guy dropped howie kendrick. My teams in my signature. There is no maximum innings and its a h2h points league, not categories - i roll through pitching starts like nuts to rack up max points; thus, id prefer not losing pitchers when I dont have to. Who would you drop for butler, and should I pick up kendrick?

c - iannetta
1b - adrian gonzalez

Rasmus would be the only one you can drop for him, and I'd do it.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

Not sure I'd want to continue playing in a league with type of drop nonsense going on but since you do... I'd can Rasmus and pick up Butler.

I hear you, this is my 'main' league with my buddies I went to university with, some know what theyre doing but some do not. I love my other, 14-team mixed league with 30 roster spots. The deeper the better.

I can drop a pitcher too; a bad SP outing can get me negative points, so its all relative. I have all my bench players as starters for potentially good starts, and I pick and choose who plays, so id rather not lose a pitcher but it doesnt mean I cant/wont drop my weakest one in favor of an excellent batter.

For instance, I wouldnt have an objection to dropping Gio or whoever for butler if you thought rasmus has more value than gio does given my situation.
