I've got Sizemore, Votto, Aramis, and Iannetta all on DL. These are my only bench hitters, so I've got to drop Iannetta for someone to play as a utility guy this week. (I have McCann & Sandoval, so I can lose Iannetta.) It's a weekly league, so whoever I get, I'm stuck with for the week. I need some expert opinions on who is my best bet this week. Scoring categories: AB, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG, SLAM
Best options: Helton (plays 7 games next week, all away) Luke Scott (plays 6 games, all away) *hot now, but more so at home Freddy Sanchez (4 games @ home vs. MEts; 3 away vs. Houston) *lots of at bats Scott Hairston (6 games @ home vs. Phillies & Arizona) *hot now Ben Francisco (1 game @ home vs. Yankees, 6 away vs. Minnesota & White Sox) **You're probably wondering why I'm including him, but I really like his potential. He's a good hitter, and will likely take over for Sizemore in batting order. Is he too risky?? Jeremy Hermida (7 games @ home vs. Brewers and Giants) Cody Ross (7 games @ home vs. Brewers and Giants) Michael Bourn (7 games @ home vs. Rockies & Pirates) *lots of SB but no HR Cuddyer is available too, but he left the game hurt today, so he's too risky.
