He has just been dropped in my league .. Is he worth an add? I am gonna have to drop Garret Jones for him, even though jones has been on fire this past week .. I also noticed that he has been batting at the bottom of the order since he came back, would that affect his projections?

I just dropped him in my league (for Jones no less) - he's not been hitting the since he came back, and I just think there are better OFs to grab and even cycle through over the course of a season (he's not a "must" own right now). If he heats up and/or Jones cools off grab him, but I don't think there's a rush for him

I'd say there's a good chance Calhoun returns to the leadoff spot when Hamilton returns to the lineup. Batting leadoff vs. 6th/7th would definitely be far more preferable and help his value a good deal, so I'd hold off on a drop here for now. Expecting Jones' hot streak to come to a stop as well given the slate of pitchers he has coming up (@WAS, vs. ATL, vs. TB), which includes Roark, Zimmerman, Teheran, Harang, Santana, and Price.

On a separate note, Projections are showing that james loney, trevor plouffe and oswaldo garcio are higher than Denard, micheal bourne and Garret jone (Who absolutely crushed it for me this past week) .. I am guessing I should wait till these guys cool off and then think of replacing them?

Plouffe and Arcia both got bumps as they're batting 3-4 in the Twins lineup now. I'm all about making the better long-term add over the short-term play on a hot streak, so would have no problem cutting Jones especially with the aformentioned schedule. Same applies to some of the others.
