Well today I am going to look at five individual players that you should consider dropping or trading as of now. There are obviously more than five struggling players, but these are five individual choices of mine. There will be a slide show like this every other week, which will run down the five worst players of the week.
There will also be a Top Five regarding the Best Players coming out on Monday.
Currently Batting: .208
Home Run Total: 0
Run Batted In: 15
Mr. Clutch is no longer a power hitter. David Ortiz went 0-7 yesterday in a game in which the Red Sox left more than 20 men on base and Ortiz left on at least half of them himself. The former 56 home run hitter has yet to hit a home run, in the longest drought he has ever been through without a home run. I do not know what his deal is, but I suggest you drop Ortiz from your fantasy team if you own him. I do not see this being a good year for him.
Batting Average: .240
Home Run Total: 4
Runs Batted In: 23
You certainly should not drop Matt Holliday, but you should not rely on him as much as you should other players. Holliday's numbers are pretty pathetic based on the caliber of player he is.
I think it was the NL to AL switch, but this guy needs time to adjust, so I would bench him for now and replace him with maybe Juan Pierre, Ryan Howard, or J.D. Drew. He is also perfect trade bait for somebody you really want on your team. Try to fool the kids who want their hometown heroes.
Current Batting Average: .296
Home Runs: 4
Runs Batted In: 20
The guy has okay numbers, but he is in a terrible slump at the moment. In his last 22 at bats, he has one hit and one RBI. I think you should use him as trade bait or bench him as he will hopefully do better soon.
Maybe the Mets biggest disappointment of the season has been Oliver Pereze, they wanted youth, yet he has been terrible this season. Now in the bullpen, Perez is worthless on the mound and I suggest you drop him or trade him as I see no use in waiting for him this season. There is always next year.
Win Total: 0
Loss Total: 4
Daniel Cabrera has been a big let down in Washington. He is yet to win a game and his ERA is getting bigger every time he pitches. I suggest that you drop him from your team as I see a terrible year for the former number one starter in Baltimore. He needs many adjustments and I see no potential for him this season.
