A sparkplug maybe?

Postby bronxxbomber » Thu Apr 14, 2005 5:29 pm

How does Carl Everett sound as nice pickup? He's off to a good start after a good spring. Could he continue to kill for the time being?

He's a good temporary pickup until Thomas comes back. ;-D

I think he's a decent option that everyone is ignoring. Iguchi has been getting on base in front of him and he's got good protection behind him with Konerko. I wouldn't expect spectatcular numbers from him, but probably solid numbers.

He is nothing special and I really dont like him as a fantasy player even when healthy. That being said he actually has some value at this point. He is batting third which, no matter which lineup, improves a players R and RBI totals. He also has decent power and speed so he doesnt really hurt you in a category and possibly could help. Im not picking him up but I could see why you would.

I saw his SAC AB tonight while I was running around the house and he looked like he was a crafty veteran who knew exactly what he was doing. I think that he's not a bad pickup.

any one if his injury tonite was serious?

I guess he ran into a wall pretty hard....

my opinion of him is that he's a good batter who has a horrible time staying healthy - if you have unlimited pickups - pick him up but be aware he will be back on DL or worse in a few weeks - if not tomorrow.

its funny cause we raise the fees every year it seems like (I first joined 4 years ago and it was $75 and $2 per move, now it's $150 and $3 per move)

I've gotten 2nd and third so far. This one guy has won it two years in a row and he has a strong team this year.....
