Completely fed up with part time players! !

Postby Simulacrum » Wed May 04, 2005 6:47 pm

Once again I've been screwed by starting players who aren't in the lineup for today's game. I'm pulling my hair out trying to find lineups prior to the games and I can't find any. Can someone offer me a reliable way to find the lineups prior to the game? I've been checking mlb.com but I'm not seeing them.

The problem position is second base. I have Edgardo Alfonzo and Ryan Freel, both a couple of stew-nods who I can't count on to start every game. Here's the available 2nd basemen on my ww. Which of these guys are full time players?

(runs, homers, RBI, stolen bases, avg)

Castillo 18 0 4 3 .299
Belliard 11 5 14 1 .296
Biggio 15 3 14 4 .309
Utley 11 3 9 1 .327
Uribe 10 1 12 1 .288

Who will put up the best numbers for the season in a HR/ RBI/ R/ AVG/ Steals rotisserie league? Who would you grab?

Thanks fellas ;-D

Biggio, by a wide margin. Can't believe he's still available. :-?

Utley is NOT the way to go if your upset with not everyday action.

I also am looking at Uribe or Belliard in my league to take over for Fonzie.

Thanks for the info. I'll pass on Utley them. Two votes for the Bigg-meister... one more and I'll pull the trigger.

rock on ;-D

There's a little "field" icon in green next to the game anywhere from and hour to a half hour before the game is scheduled to start. Click it and the lineups come up. ;-)
