Drop L Ford for Taveras?

Postby SonsofSlam04 » Tue Apr 12, 2005 6:11 pm

I belong to a 10 team H2H Keeper League. We normally start 4 OF's a week and 1 DH (Which usually turns out to be an OF)

My current OF's consist of: C Crawford, M Cabrera, A Dunn, V Wells, J Lane and L Ford

I have been reading negative reports on L Ford, should I drop him for Houston OF Taveras??

If there is anyone that would like advice, please leave your link and I will answer all posts.

Thanks to all who answer

If you put it in the Trade Keeper and Waiver Forum you would probably get more responses. With that said I'd keep Lew and hope he can bounce back from his tough first week.

I think you have to stick with Ford at this point.

Thank you. As for the question, I'd stick with Lew as well. He's got more upside at this point IMO, plus you've got SB's pretty well covered with Crawford and Wells.

Why would you want to do this? Lew stole 20+ last season and he hit over 300, no? Keep him, he has a job. Taveras is a gamble at this point.

I would have to say absolutely not. Ford has been readjusting his swing a bit. But I would say to hold on to him longer to see how he pans out. Ford is by far the better bet. Taveras is a current flash in the pan.

The FBC people who answered are right. You've got SB and Lew Ford has shown his abilities b4 and has shown that he can be a big leaguer. Remember that Taveras is a rook and might not be there when Berk is back. It's weird how manager hasn't put him in leadoff with his speed. Burke should get the playing along with Lane. Taveras is a ?.
