Oh, I agree, but our league is only 8 teams. And the problem is we have specific OF positions-LF/CF/RF. Normally it would be a no brainer, but now I have to choose between Rios, Delmon Young and Cuddyer for the RF and Uti spot.

Plus we get only 30 moves for the season. So yes, I picked Rios up, but it's hard to make the pieces fit, especially since Teahen had both 3rd and RF eligibility.

You can always trade Rios to one of the smarter people in your league. I get the feeling most people I play with don't realize how great he was doing last year before that infection thing.

I'm glad I have him on my #1 team.

i think rios is on the same level, in terms of sleeper-status, as delmon and markakis. im really high on all three, in terms of being those 5-tool fantasy players... rios was never really a sleeper after that spurt last year.


and seriously. do you really have to ask? teahan for rios plz.

Rios is atleast a tier above Markakis. Not sure about Delmon though, the jurys still out. Rios has proven he can be an all category contributor. Now he just needs to improve on last season, which i believe he will do. Especially now that he's going to be leading off for atleast the next couple months.

I don't see why Rios can't steal 20+ and get 100+ runs. ;-D
