I would immediately put him above Durham if he become eligible.
Well, I've already got Figgins playing 2B right now, ahead of Durham... so that leaves me with another question.
Assuming my Util is going to be Thomas.
Assuming my 1B is going to be Giambi.
Assuming my OF will be Sizemore/Sheffield/(Swisher)/Drew/(Markakis).
I don't really need Figgins in the OF, so he's available at 2B/3B.
Durham sucks. I know this. But, Encarnacion isn't much better at 3B.
If Lopez does become 2B eligible, what's my play?
Figgins at 3B, Lopez at 2B?
Or keep Encarnacion at 3B and Figgins at 2B?
Like I said, I know Durham isn't going to be my first option at 2B either way.
Maybe I'd be better off just dropping Durham and assuming that Lopez will become SS/2B flexible? Then I can juggle Figgins/Encarnacion/Lopez anyway that I want, and not worry about Durham?
I'm hating dropping Durham more than Lopez though... that's a crapload of RBIs and a very solid average. Lopez brings speed, but I've already got quite a bit of that.
Of course, this being a weekly H2H league, I can adjust day-to-day or week-to-week which stat categories I want to load up on, so maybe I should really be looking at keeping both of these guys and leaving my pitching staff the way it is (with Escobar/Gonzalez added and Martin/Wood dropped).... lots of choices here. I suppose that's a good thing.
