i have Sizemore in my big money leauge

if he doesn't start producing soon i'm gonna be pissed

i just don't think he's working as a leadoff hitter, he should be mover to #2 or #3 in the order, or atleast he should start running when he gets on base.

I have sizemore and peralta in my money league. I drafted sizemore because i picked him up as an FA last year and he helped my team alot. This year everyone is expecting bigger and better things for him.


Some guy in my league dropped Peralta and since everyone was also high on him i grabbed him.


I don't know i just hope these guys start producing :-o

easy answer: 2 weeks into the season! 45 ab of 500 lets 1/10 of a full season. My bet is the other 9/10ths will be a lot better. ;-D

They both got contracts this offseason. So, they are no longer looking for that big payday. It has already happened.

I've got Peralta, and tt's been a disappointing start for sure, but like Fenway said, it's very early. Peralta is in a potent lineup, and he hits in front of Hafner, so he's going to get pitches to hit all year assuming he doesn't move down in the order, and I don't see that happening. Plus, he's scoring a lot of runs thanks to the bats of Hafner and V. Martinez. I'm sticking with him.

you are right, it is early. some people are playing way over their potential and others way under. i still think sizemore is over rate though, and you will be dissapointed if you drafted him in the first three or four rounds.

Yeah, there's no way you can give up on Peralta.
