I'd hang on to Rocco Baldelli.

Nomar Garciaparra's injury bug is just one reason to stay away (while with Boston).

Plus you've got a great SS in Tejada already.

Rocco's SB may be slow to catch on (since that's not a category though, no worries), but the rest of himself should be able to catch up to speed more quickly.

D'Rays line up will actually improve quite a bit when he does return.

It is honestly a tough call. Baldelli has the better chance of actually being on the field for the second half, but how good will he be? ACL recoveries are REALLY slow, and I would expect few SBs from him. Take aways the SBs and he is not that different from guys you can find on the WW. I would tend to role the dice with Garciaparra, who at least has a small chance to be an impact guy down the stretch.

This all assumes you are talking a single season league.

In a keeper league I wouldn't drop Nomar.

All things ive heard{Have a home in Tampa} say he'll be fine. Hollins is A pain in that hes so hot he may delay Baldelli pushing back quickly. I think Nomar is now a shadow of his former self. The Curse lives on in him! Im tryin 3 for 2 trades to free up a spot for him. If its him or Nomar go with the youngster! ;-D
