this guy is having a great spring, what are your predictions and should he be picked up, hes available in all of my leagues except one, ive allready grabbed him in a few but there is one league that i could defonitly use a little more power because i have way to much speed(Rollins, Crawford, b.Roberts). im considering dropping roberts for him in this league and putting him in at 2b. i hate to drop roberts but hes my only choice. another plus is he qualifies at 1b, 2b, 3b.

anyways, sorry to ramble, lol, what do u guys think about this guy this year?

hes one of the hottest players in the spring right now, i doubt he sint starting, i believe he is 2nd in the national league with 17 RBI's, i know its only spring but he is killing the ball.

i heard he was the starter but mackowiak may steal some at bats. will likely still be a decent source of power for a 2b. may want to also look at bill mueller if availabe. still, i am not sure i would drop roberts for him.

Buy! Buy! Buy!

I doubt you will find a better steal off the bench in deep leagues. I have him and have become the envy of - well - myself. But he is well worth the risk (if there is any) plus he his multi-positions covering all infield bases.

on yahoo he has 2B eligibility in addition to 1B and 3B. I think using him as a 2B gives him a value you cant ignore in deeper leagues.

yeah for someone eligible throughout the whole infield. I thnk you have to buy. this he should get a good amount of AB's and will put up decent numbers (no one in PIT is going to get great numbers)

Mackowiak could take some at bats, but I think Redman in CF or other OF spots is more likely where Mackowiak will steal his at bats from.

Go Wiggy go! (ya, I have him so I am biased.)
