Say it Ain’t Soto, Please.

I think I’ve got Soto on every single one of my fantasy teams.

What does that mean?
Well, it means that I went early on him in every draft. It also means that I have Brandon Inge (thank you) on every single team, because nobody drafted him and I snatched him as soon as Soto missed a game.

I’m kind of surprised that the experts haven’t mentioned Soto or talked about how awful he’s been, and then I got on SportingNews and there he was getting mentioned.

Whats the problem with Soto?

What's the problem with Soto?

It’s a little bit about fantasy player break-ups, meaning, when you break up with them and drop them to the waivers. At this point in the season, you can bet on some hasty drops being made, but I think the more important ones will come later in May.

That will be when owners who really think they know what they’re doing have decided that they’ve waited long enough for their stars to show their skills.

I held onto Hafner for a long time last year, only to be continually let down as he sat on my bench. I eventually dropped him and it was a decision I could have made a lot earlier.

So, do you drop Soto? What about Upton? You don’t drop these guys. Come on. You watch the waivers and wait for somebody else to drop them…and hopefully you’re in a head-to-head league so you can beat them with their own player in a playoff match up somewhere down the road.

Other names making their way to the waivers – Bonifacio, Kawakami, Romero, Jimenez…
