Popular Drops

Fantasy leaguers are a fickle bunch, adding and dropping players due to one bad outing or one 0 for 10 streak.  Here's my take on this week's most popular drops.

  • Carlos Silva.  I don't get this one; Silva has delivered exactly what was expected (if not more).  Great control, lousy strikeout rate.  If you need some staff filler but are good on Ks he's a fine pick.
  • Manny Corpas.  Time to pull the plug on Corpas now that he's lost his job to Brian Fuentes?  I own Corpas in one league and he's just kind of sitting there because I haven't decided yet.  If you held a gun to my head I'd say he's not getting his job back this year unless Fuentes gets hurt.  Corpas owners may want to try to swing a (reasonable) trade to acquire a closer and then cut him.
  • Todd Wellemeyer.  In his last start he didn't quite own the Bucs as hoped.  He gets the Reds on Monday; I'd consider it.  He's whiffed a batter per inning so far with solid control. 
  • Greg Smith.  The Oakland rookie is off to a nice start; dropping him now is odd.  Still, he's due for major regression and his scouting reports don't impress too much.
  • Lastings Milledge.  His numbers are fairly weak, and he was benched yesterday for showing up late.   I still believe in his talent; I wouldn't cut him unless I was adding another power/speed combo threat.
  • Greg Maddux.  With Mad Dog you can't look start to start.  He will get shelled, he will be brilliant.  You know what you're getting long-term.
  • Bronson Arroyo.  I had him in a league and I cut him a week or two ago.   There isn't much upside here; he's mediocre.
  • Gavin Floyd.  We warned you about his flukey success.  A shaky mixed league pick.
  • Carlos Delgado.  Wouldn't have drafted him in the first place.  I'd be fine cutting bait.
  • Francisco Liriano.  Difficult call.  If I had any kind of decent replacement I'd probably bite the bullet and cut him.  Maybe he has a big second half, but Liriano is pretty far off right now.
