I asked tyhis a few weeks ago, and figured I'd revisit it:
Is it worth dropping Burrell for Burnitz? Jeromy has been pretty solid for awhile now, and I'm afraid he won't last on waiver wires for much longer. With today's homer, he passed Burrell's season totals (this is even though Burrell has been playting all season, while Burnitz missed six weeks with a broken hand).
the old burnitz was a .250, 30 HR guy. this year, he looks like he's back to that form. i think he's worth dropping burrell for, since burrell will hvae to go on a streak to get to where burnitz' avg season has been. as for next year, definitely take burrell. he might have to redeem himself big time in 2004
I've been dragging Burrell around since the beginning, when I drafted him way to high anyway, loser. I've got Jacque Jones, and Fick, and Burnitz on the wire that I'm contemplating. Who do you think I should grab?
I'd take Jones. Not as many homers as Burnitz, but higher average and you'll also get some SB's. Frankly, I'm surprised he's available.
