Please tell me why I should stick with Jeremy Reed

All I heard about was how good this kid was going to be, but so far hes been below average. I won't cut him but I will stahs him away until he breaks out. Any chance of that happening anytime soon?

I can't tell you anything unless you give more information. For all I know your in an 8 team league in which there is no way you should own him.

So for future reference just give more information to let people help you out easier. ;-D

But it just terms of Reed, he will hit eventually. He has just gotten off to a slow start, but he has hit at every level so far and pitchers are just adjusting to him now.

I've been following Reed for several years now, and was very excited this pre-season about his bat, lineup, etc. I still think he'll eventually be a solid fantasy starter in most leauges, but at the moment, he's just not quite getting the job done. I'm extremely upset that I've had to cut him a few leagues due to injuries and other non-performers (read VMart). If you have the bench room, I'd hold onto him.

Reed is very droppable. He should turn into a decent #2 hitter in reality, but until he hits for a very high average he'll be a lame fantasy player. Reed won't help you in sb's, in rbi, or in homers - his average needs to get up and decent run totals should follow that. Fantasywise Reed is kind of like Swisher - except Swisher is only going to give you hr and rbi, and only when he plays well. Both these guys were way too hyped up prior to the season and their owners (although I'm assuming there aren't many of those left) are suffering

The main reason Id keep him is because he hasn't been bad if you take out his 0-12 start...

18/54 (.333) 11runs, 4 rbis in the last 16 games, over a season that pans out to be > 100 runs, > .300 avg and the stolen bases will start coming as well. Dont quit on him now, but sit him Vs. Lefties

He's simply worthless unless he shows he's going to steal at least 20 this year.

In a non-keeper league, I can't give you a reason to hold onto him.

Unless it's a keeper you shouldnt, I admit I thought hed have a decent year batting around the Mariners big boys, but I was wrong. Get rid of him now unless its a keeper you may want to consider a little

I have him in a couple AL-only leagues, and yes, he's done fine after his 0-12 start. He can steal bases, but he probably won't so much in the 2005 Mariners lineup vs. the pitiful one they had last year. But then again, Beltre isn't exactly mashing and Sexson is hitting for a pretty low average. So they might start sending him a bit more.

The biggest problem is that if he gets on, there's almost always an Ichiro a base ahead of him.

Another 0fer tonight -- add that to some other 0s --- as in 0HRs an 0SBs and you've got to wonder if he has any fantasy value to speak of. I'm going to give him one more week. Then I'll need to cut my losses.

I don't see this as impatience. Impatience is cutting someone with a bankable track record who is playing horribly (see Eric Chavez)
