Bench Carpenter

I'm waiting for A-Ramirez to come back for me at 3rd base in my roto league, and right now have been cycling waiver wire guys like Rolen in at 3rd while Davis continues to struggle. I'm currently doing poorly in SBs and runs with Reyes' injury, my pitching has been excellent, and Figgins has been hot. Should I do this deal or stick it out? SPs like Danks, Maine, Jimenez, etc are on the waiver wire that I could drop bench guys like Rolen for as a replacement. Thanks for the help. 10-team 5×5 roto league C: Wieters 1b: Pujols 2b: Utley 3b: Davis SS: Zobrist OF & Util: Markakis, Kemp, Lee, Holliday DL : A. Ramirez, Reyes SP: Carpenter, Harang, Slowey, C. Young, Greinke, Vazquez RP: Bell, Qualls, Franklin, Hoffman. Essentially — NO. Don't even think about that. Carpenter is one of the best pitchers right now and Figgins would just be a replacement and then you won't need him when those guys get back. You have great pitching right now, but without Carpenter you'll see your pitching suffer. Just wait out the storm. It'll pay off in the end.

    I think you should try to get Figgins but maybe not for Carpenter unless you want to rid him because of his injuries.

    Carpenter is arguably the hottest pitcher in the nl right now, so keep him.
