I'm having trouble deciding between Rivera and Chris Burke. Is there a clear winner here?

Burke if you need speed or a second baseman, otherwise Rivera.

I just picked him up as well. Hopefully he will outproduce my UTIL platoon of B. Giles/Beltre/Shelton/C. Jackson.

My issue is do I drop Granderson for him? Or even how does Rivera stack up to a heating-up Milton Bradley?

Who is Juan Rivera?

He is the guy who is hitting cleanup(EDIT: my bad, 5th) for the Los Aangeles Angels of Anaheim, in between Vlad and Napoli. GA is now hitting sixth. I gotta think that Scioscia will try out a lineup like this for at least a short time. If he stays hot, he could do a lot of damage in the next few weeks....

Hmm, dump a 2nd half bust like Blalock for a 2nd half gem like this guy? :-? :*)

Rivera from 2003-2005:

Pre All-Star Break - .247
Post All-Star Break - .322

That is a pretty strong split over a few years. I've picked him up and am hoping he does the same this year.

That's a good question...I've considered it myself but am not ready to give up on Blalock yet...Rivera's been hot though.
If you can help:

I am in the same boat. Just hoping to ride the hot streak. Although he does not face good matchups in Boston this weekend, he has not disappointed.
