Time to give up on Votto? I picked Votto in rd 5 of a 10 team thinking he would be solid as usual. High avg (.290-.310) OBP 400+ and 80 runs 80 rbis.

This year... He has been abysmal. .207 avg .323 opb with 19 runs and 9 rbis. He has not been injured and he has a good lineup around him.

I am hesitant to drop him only because if I do he WILL turn it around. I had Josh Bell had to drop him since 3 pitchers went on IL. So I dropped him and he went off.


So I ask you...Votto cut bait or keep him?
Votto has been a FA in my 12 team league

for the last week. All of the other teams are pretty big baseball guys so you're definitely not alone in thinking about dropping him. I was considering picking him up but my only choice would be to drop Tatis for him .
Murphy was dropped in my league

I am STACKED offensively but I am still putting in a claim for him. We have 8 offensive categories (R, H, HR, RBI, SB, K, Ave., OPS).

I have

Sanchez
Abreu
Voit
Aguilar
Albies
Baez
Hiura
Lindor
Didi
Ramierez
Senzel
Haniger
Puig
Smith Jr.
Piscotty

I have tried to flip Albies for a P but everybody is being insane with the asking price of pitchers.
Still interested to hear others opinions on Votto as well...

Also wondering if anyone would drop one of these SP's:

Jose Quintana
Martin Perez
Matthew Boyd
Frankie Montas

To pickup one of these?

Yusei Kikuchi
Wade Miley
Joe Musgrove
Brandon Woodruff
Tyler Mahle
Spencer Turnbull
Trevor Williams
Mike Leake
Eduardo Rodriguez
John Means
Marcus Stroman
Woodruff stands out to me especially since he is RP eligible

Toussaint scratched from his minor league start.

He could be getting called up again. No idea if that is why or if he will be starting or relieving.

I love Woodruff and Musgrove, but likely would only drop for Martin Perez. His performance seems not sustainable.

If that is Jose Ramierez do you think he will turn it around?
I found Tanaka on my waiver wire.
