Deep MI sleepers?

Postby CBMGreatOne » Fri May 06, 2005 9:11 pm

Right now I'm using Aaron Miles at 2B because Nomar got hurt and I moved Figgins to SS. Is there anyone flying under the radar right now that could present an upgrade over Miles? Vizquel is available, but I really have no interest in him. Any ideas?

Utley, if he keeps playing like he is there is a chance they will make him perminant.

Alot of people are avoiding him because of his spotty play time.

Bill Hall's been playing well. Bartlett for Minn just came back off the DL Vizquel's a pretty good option, if you can spot him against righties only.

Bartlett has not been on the DL. Take a look at Nick Green. he has been stealing PT from Cantu and playing well. He qualifies at third and second with five or more games played at both. And he has played one game in the outfielder.

Deep?

Take a look at Mike Lamb. He qualifies all over and when he gets playing time he produces.

not exactly deep but Lugo will be a nice option this whole year for normally being considered WW material by most people. For a really deep one ill say Orlando Hudson, he gets PT and his numbers arent terrible for what you would expect from him, i thin khes a better option that Miles

Deep, as in Marianas Trench deep? Nick Putno, for steals alone. The last two professional seasons he recorded over 400 at bats, he stole 33 and 42 bases respectively, although both those totals came in the minors. If Rivas finally gets the boot and Punto takes over at second base for the Twins, a 30-steal pace, prorated for whatever portion of the season reamins is a good possibility.

He was 6-for-6 in the bigs last season, playing in only 38 games, and for a portion of those games he was a defensive substitute. He's 1-for-1 so far this year.

Utley and Lugo? C'mon, these guys aren't available in any deep leagues. Sheesh!

Adam Kennedy, Jose Castillo might be.

Perhaps Kahlil Greene was dropped when he went on the DL. He's scheduled to be activated Monday, I believe.
