Permanent 2nd baseman........M. Giles or Catalonotto

Postby Bricks » Fri Jul 04, 2003 8:38 pm

I'm still undecided on who to start at 2nd base. I started Giles for most of the season, but i have been benching him because he struggled. I was thinking of dropping either one so I could pick up Podsednik. What do you guys think? Giles or Cat?

Here is my team: H2H at yahoo, R HR SB AVG RBI

C - Posada
1B - Delgado
2B - Catalonotto (can be 1B and OF too)
3B - Rolen
SS - Furcal
OF - Patterson
OF- Ordonez
OF - Byrnes
Util - D. Lee
Bench - M. Giles
Bench - Green

I will appreciate any advice. Thank you.

Good question. I would give the edge to Cat:

(1) Although 2B-eligible, Cat isn't playing the infield this year, which may keep him healthier than Marcus.
(2) Marcus has never played over 100 games in a major league season.
(3) Marcus plays half his games in humid Atlanta, Frank plays home games indoors in the offensive-friendly Metrodome.
(4) Cat will probably score and drive in more runs.

On the other hand:

(1) Cat has poor splits vs. LHP and will probably sit out more than Marcus, unless Marcus continues to slump.
(2) Marcus will steal more bases and probably hit more homers.

Who do you guys think I should drop to get Podsednik? Or is he worth getting? I need a few more steals, so please help me.

Beware of Reed Johnson! He is stealing nearly ALL of Cat's ABs against lefties.

Because of that, I'd go with MGiles.

I see that today (Sunday), Reed Johnson gets the start, instead of Cat, against Lopez, a RHP, despite Cat's 2 hits Saturday. I'll definitely agree that Marcus is a better choice given this.

patterson went on the DL, so put Cat in the OF and put Giles at 2b.
