Ryan Freel?? Starter or Utility Guy?

If you've got daily lineup changes you should not even be thinking about dropping Freel.
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.

I am lucky enough to have him. However, I would try and trade him if I wasn't in a daily line up type of league. I saw somewhere that he'll likely start against LHP and get some ab's vs. RHP.

sit him or play him

Hmm, well again I'm not sure what to do today. It sounds like I should sit him because the Reds are facing a righty, but he had such a good game yesterday maybe he will start. What does anyone else think? My back up for him is Durham.
Peace out!

About an hour before the game, Yahoo posts the lineups in their game preview. Sometimes it's a lot less than that, but I find them to be very accurate. Unless Durham has an earlier game, I'd wait for the lineups to come out.

Thanks for the pointer, I hadn't seen that feature on yahoo yet. That should come in handy. Thanks.

Here's an example. It's 2:15 right now and the lineup for the 3:05 St Louis/Philly game is up.

Just so everybody knows, Freel is NOT starting today. Looks like he might only start against lefties for now.

Whew, good thing I went a head and started Durham today. It's doubly nice because the Giants are my team, so when he came up with one down and men on the corners it was freakin' sweet to watch him knock them in and then come around to score later.
Peace out!
