We are only allowed 2 DL spots and I have Coco Crisp on my bench because I cannot DL him, since I already have Patterson and Harden on the DL. Whichever one comes back first, I will put on the bench and put the other one on the DL until they come off. Patterson and Crisp are likely to be activated around the same time (May 14th or so).
Danny Haren has been getting hit pretty hard. I traded OF Raul Ibanez for him after Harden got hurt, thinking I got a steal, but he got rocked last night. Not sure if I should hang onto him or not. I picked Verlander up off the waiver wire. He's pitched well so far. When Crisp and Patterson both come off the DL, I'll have to drop 1 player. When Harden comes back, I'll have to drop another player. Not sure which players I should drop.
Players available: T. Lilly (TOR), K. Escobar (LAA), and D. Cabrera (BAL).
Should I drop Verlander or Haren and pick up any of the above before one of my players come off the DL? Just not sure what to do, and who to try and keep long term, but it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to keep Verlander or Haren long term when Harden and Patterson come back, unless one of those two really start to put up good numbers and Penny struggles.
I want to keep all 4 relievers, and Myers and Bedard. I might be open to trading one of them, but no one in the league wants to trade a SP for a RP right now.
