Cliff Floyd? Roberto Alomar?

Postby chinch sacs » Sat May 03, 2003 7:07 pm

someone dropped him, is he hurt? I know hes been sucking it big time, but I picked him up. His Yahoo O-Rank is like 99 and I need a good OF, is he an OK pick up? My #4 OF is Carlos Lee, so he has to be better than that...

On a related note someone dropped Alomar 2 days ago, so I got him too, I dont want too many Mets on my team...

I think they're both good pick-ups if you can put them on your bench. Otherwise you will be very frustrated.

Floyd just hit the waiver wire in my league too. He is playing thru some pain this year, so he may not put up typical Floyd numbers. I'm considering nabbing him and dumping Kielty for my bench. I think it's too early to dump him unless the guy is loaded with strugglers.

Alomar is still a top 10 starter at second base, definitely not an elite 2B, but he is still perfectly solid to use there if you can't get Soriano, Vidro, Kent or maybe one of the Boones. He also has the potential to rebound in a huge way from last year, but it won't happen until Piazza and Floyd start rolling.

Floyd is injury prone and is obviously not a top option at outfield, but he is still IMO starter calibre in a 10-12 team mixed league. Yes, his numbers will decline now that he has moved to Shea but he should still hit about .280-30-90 as the Mets' cleanup hitter. If you have any outfielders worse than that as starters or on your bench, I'd grab Floyd, he's still a solid player and will heat up. Maybe the grand slam he hit today will get him rolling. He is still a top 30-35 outfielder.
