if i were in your situation, 100 times out of 100 id be picking up desmond in a heartbeat. when he was healthy he was the best SS in the league and that was with the nagging oblique injury he was dealing with too, so now that hell be back in a few days in full health id almost expect even more from him than what he was putting up before he went on the DL.

espinosa is solid too, bonifacio should only be picked up if you want stolen bases and only stolen bases, but desmond is kind of the mix between espinosa and boni.. hes got some pop in the bat, good average, has pretty good speed... at this point you can probably tell im pretty high on desmond and by all means you should be too haha

help please?

Thanks for the help.

I agree with prior post on Desmond if he's returning shortly. Espinosa has been hot so old temporary pick up as alternative but I go Desmond. Of course if you solely need SBs, bona is best for that. I'd drop walker.

what about dropping machado? does anybody really think this 20 year old that's never played about AA is gonna maintain this pace? he may, but I would go with history and say "likely not." i'd rather have espinosa AND desmond over stubbs. don't know how many DL spots you have but nobody has any idea when ortiz is even coming back from the DL(or even coming back this season), and with an achilles injury for someone his size and 36 years old, he's quite the wild card.(and if boston continues sinking, i don't see any reason for them to activate him.). Do you need 5 closers? just trying to throw out options.

I actually would want Bonifacio if you can hold out until he comes back (or staff him until then).

I'd want Bonifacio because of his major steal potential. This is really the first season that Desmond has shown life, so even though I like him, I don't have all the faith in the world. I say drop Walker (who's just been lucky IMO) and grab Bonifacio.
