Which 2 secondbasemen should I have?

Postby jebatzel » Fri Jun 13, 2003 2:26 pm

I have Marcus Giles and Jose Vidro, right now.

Should I stay with those 2 or pick up Young, Eric (2B-Mil) who is a free agent?

here is my team now. (I should take over 1st place after this week)

Batters Stats:
R HR RBI SB AVG
C Lopez, Javy (C-Atl)
1B Giambi, Jason (1B, DH-NYY)
2B Giles, Marcus
3B Boone, Aaron
SS Renteria, Edgar
OF Beltran, Carlos (CF-KC)
OF Ramirez, Manny (LF, DH-Bos)
OF Wells, Vernon (CF-Tor)
Util Ensberg, Morgan (3B-Hou)
Bench Pierre, Juan (CF-Fla) (already have 8 steals this week, so don't need him in the lineup now)
Bench Rodriguez, Ivan (C-Fla)
Bench Vidro, Jose (2B-Mon)

I'd keep Giles and Vidro, and I'd probably use Vidro as my starting 2B most of the time, because he is a superior player to Giles. Both Giles and Vidro are far better than Young.

yeah I probably don't need his steals. My lineup yesterday had 6 steals.

Thru today my lineup is hitting a cool .485

You are set there, no need to do anything, They are very solid second basemen. Giles seems to have finally found his nitch and is hitting and fielding solidlly

don't ignore the obvious if you can avoid it. pick up young, then trade giles. Young is old and a risk definitely, but giles probably has some decent value. jsut athought. young is a good guy to have. at least pick him up to protect your steals lead for the time being. then you have options to deal at a hard position to fill.

i dsiagree, don;t stick with that, you ar eleaving on eon your bench. both are good, and you do not need both and you can pick up an adequate repalcement. or trade said replacement. I would move one, seriously. eric young i sno worse than what most are playing in your league at MI and vidro is better at 2b than most. both have value. I think this is a golden opportunity, but this is just me. eric young is old and it is a risk, but I think even with eric and vidro, you are better than the league average and you ahve soemone who coudl probably fethc a decent amount. remember, a decent part of this game is abotu negotiatiation, not baseball. try it. worst thing that happens is nothing. pick him up if yu can with minimal penalty.

or try and ply him with a save starved team wuith jaun pierre. jsut be careful that said tema can;t catch you. there is value for you to exploit with minimum penalty. or trade vidro, keep giles and young for insurance and try and impriove another psotiion. I do belive you can exploit this. this fame is mroe ahtna baseball knowledge...

jsut rememebr, thsi game is more abotu trealtive values and scarcity than it is for pure baseball ability. (In general). Obvosuly, you pay for soriano tc. but people will overpay for specialist positions which is silly, but use that.
