freel and general steals strategy

Postby great gretzky » Thu Jul 14, 2005 7:31 pm

I'm not looking for specific trade advice -- unless someone is kind enough to pm some.

This has to do more with my general steals strategy. I'm next to last. 15 or so would move me 2-3 points, so there is merit to hanging in there. But freel's injury and beltran's woes make me wonder...

Woudl it be worth it to punt them and move beltran for something more useful in the power department? I am torn, because every day that passes is a lost opportunity. I am doing ok (4th) considering I have: helton, schmidt, beltran, huff.

Strategy wise, is taking my two (11 teams) worthwhile?

I don't think it would be a bad move to punt SBs in this situation since you would only be losing a point.

I've said this before -- and I hope to be wrong -- but Freel himself has said that this is not a one-off injury. He has a congential issue with his second toe and it is prone to reinjury unless he gets surgey. Translation: I don't think he'll be running like a jackrabbit and increasing his vunerability. He'll run, but probably more selectively. So if you are looking to him to pull you up the rankingsl, probably a good idea to temper that expectation a bit.
