He's my bench guy, for sure. Today, because he's involved in a double-header, I started him to get two games' stats. The nice HR already has made it worth it. In fact, Lugo rides my bench too, so I started him. 2HRs so far.

As far as Youkilis goes, his eligibility makes him all the more valuable.



You can say the same about Ordonez. He's the 3rd ranked player according to yahoo, but he gets no hype.

because there's nothing much to get excited about perhaps? He's a nice bench guy and/or injury replacement... but that's about it.

No, I kind of agree with Fierro. His line is much better than most of the players that are probably starting on an average team.

Not much to get excited about?

The guy will hit 300, hit about 15-20 HR's, doesn't SO, will score a ton of runs batting 2nd in the sox line up and does not take days off.

Ya he sucks...oh wait, multi-position eligibility..man he sucks

i'm in a league that counts walks and strikeouts so i use him a bunch, haven't lost runs once, win walks almost every week.

he's very valuable in my opinion, even in 5x5 roto.
