Is Wil Myers droppable now in 12 team leagues?

I'm pretty securely in 2nd place and probably have the best hitting in the league (see below). I don't like to keeping bench hitters in order to maximize my pitching but now I've got Myers and Harper out long term, and Victorino out probably another few weeks. I could drop him for Belisario to try and compete in saves but wouldn't be opposed to dropping one of my worse pitchers for him (Kuroda, Garcia, Colon, or Porcello). My lineup could look pretty deadly come August if it includes Harper and Myers as well.

No DL spot? If so, I would definitely try to trade him (or even drop him) to help your pitching. Looking at your hitters, I'd try to capitalize on your strength at 1B and move one of them (maybe Chris Davis will he still has pretty strong name value) to also help your pitching.

And how in the hell did you get Cabrera, Trout and Harper in a 12-team league??

Agreed with mattgus here - definitely favor a trade of some sort over an outright drop. Shop him to the teams in the upper half of the standings in your league. At this point you need to make at least several moves to address your pitching. No real need to stash multiple bats here - mainly Myers - as you're really just overkilling the hitting stats.

1 DL spot which is occupied by Harper, so 2 DL guys on my bench. I just traded for Chris Davis (gave Iwakuma and KRod, didn't think I could pass up that value), but I'm open to trading AGon. The strategy which has worked in the past for me is to just stack hitting and stream pitching to try and take Wins and Ks each week while competing in the ratios with good streams.

Also it was an auction so I paid up for Miggy and Kershaw, and just made a trade for Trout (gave up Mauer, Pujols, Pedroia, Samardzija for Trout, Kipnis, Myers, and Porcello). Harper and Hanley were also parts of another major trade where I gave up Alexei, Crisp, Butler, and Lester (Harper was already injured).
