Today, it is Herrera. Lowrie is hot but still trying to find his positional groove in BoSox, but making a great case. Herrera seems to have made his claim. I always like that newbie in Colorado. Seems to take off.

Herrera is the keeper because Scutaro is going to be tough to move. That and it's a Colorado dude. ;-D

Tough choice, especially since Lowrie is getting the nod at SS today. But with Ian Stewart being demoted to Triple-A today, the infield is opening up a bit in Colorado. Herrera looks to get more playing time than Lowrie in the future.

With that said, for this week alone, I would take Lowrie because he is on absolute fire right now.

Help with mine?

Lowrie will play . If not at short he will play somewhere else to keep his bat in the lineup. But his time will come fulltime very soon. Scuturo is in the last year of his contract. The Red Sox have won all three games Lowrie has started. He's smoking and even his outs are hard hit balls. He has continued hitting from last year.
I like Lowrie now and going foward.

Lowrie should be in your lineup against all LHP. Easily.

At other times it's probably better to go with Herrera.

Lowrie easily over Herrera to me. Herrera is much more valuable in real life then he could ever hope to be in fantasy... he will give you runs, a decent average, and a few steals. Lowrie has the potential to give you all of that at a higher rate plus power.
