Upton....

Postby jh2031 » Thu Jul 21, 2005 11:12 pm

When the Rays trade Lugo will BJ be the starting SS? I've heard Lugo can go to the Bo Sox or to the Nationals...when he does will they finally give Upton the job? I know he makes errors but his bat and SB potential are enough to have him up and playing.

Is Lugo def. being traded? If so , I don't see why...I play in a 25 man/ 16 team league where there isn't much out there. If he's that close, I may just pick him up.

I don't think Lugo is getting traded, just my opinion.

Like i said...The Nationals are really in need of a SS with Guzman doing so bad, hitting .190 for the season. I have Upton in my minor league system in a 15 team league with no FA wire and i need SB help so i'm hoping Lugo gets traded soon cause i hear that Upton is hitting well.

Upton is hitting well, but he's got something like 34 errors, which is why he's down there. Then again, I don't see why they let him take his lumps in the show, the Rays lead the majors in errors anyways...

Doesn't make much sense to DH him unless they need his bat for a run at the pennant -- they don't do it for fantasy baseball afterall. From their standpoint, makes more sense to develop Upton's defensive skills for a useful position. Given they're overstocked in OF, probably makes most sense to get him ready for 3B or 2B so that he's less of a defensive liability, but I guess they're still hoping for him to stick at SS.
