David Ortiz worthy of a roster spot?

Postby brdmaverick » Mon Jun 09, 2003 11:21 am

what do you guys think about David Ortiz? Now that Shea Hillenbrand is gone, and the Sox are back to playing AL style of baseball, I think David Ortiz is going to get much more playing time, whether it be at first or DH. He will probably alternate between the fifth spot (behind Manny) and sixth spot (behind Millar). He should have plenty of RBI opportunities. Do you think he would be a good fantasy pickup?

I don't think he's valuable until he gets a solid starting job. Millar's 3 HRs in the last 24 hours means he's on a hot streak, and the sox will be willing to play that out.

Unless there are AT LEAST 15 teams and you have the time every day to check the lineup and see if he's in there, don't pick him up. Millar will benefit the most from Shea's departure.
