Any chance that Lugo becomes viable soon?

Postby Slayer Rules » Fri Jul 13, 2007 10:30 am

He's been much better - granted it's only been the last few games where he's shown a pulse. I need help at 2nd AND 3rd - and the loss of Kinsler cost me a decent amount of stolen bases. Any chance he can hit for a decent average in the 2nd half?

12-team roto, standard scoring. Currently in 3rd - Very poor in Wins, WHIP, HR. Strong in Average, Runs, Steals

C - McCan't
1B - Cuddyer
2B - Orlando Hudson
3B - Youkilis
SS - Reyes
OF - Rios
OF - Holliday
OF - Pence
UTIL - Jeter
SP - MAine
SP - Blanton
P - Lincecum
P - Marmol
P - Putz
RP - Accardo
RP - Dotel
Bench - Felix (P)
Bench - Granderson (OF)
Bench - Andruw (OF)
Bench - Salty (1B, C)
Bench - DeRosa (2B, 3B, OF)

I'd want to see assurances that he's got a full time gig again, but I'd say yes. His skills haven't disappeared over night. Keep an eye on the situation, and be ready to capitalize - His average is going to look ugly for a while, so you can probably wait a couple of weeks.

Yeah, this guy is a career .270 hitter. He just needed a boost in his confidence, and he has gotten that now. I'd pick him up soon if I were you. For the time being, though, I'd look at the matchups, and only play him at home. Once he gets his average up a bit, he will make a good every day replacement for Kinsler. Good luck!

I picked him up, then dropped him for Gallardo, but will try and pick him up again, when a spot opens on my team. He's been running all year, so he'll have value. I think he's gonna start hitting, he's been a solid player his whole career. His final numbers will look bad, but from here on out, I think he'll be usable.

If it's not too late, I think Lugo would be a safe add to ANY team right now as he's hotter than a firecracker!

Seriously, I picked up up a game or two before the All-Star Break, and he's been absolutely mashing and running like wild. He has to be one of the top 5 players in all of fantasy over that time, if not the top player over the past week.

Yeah, i recently picked him up in one of my leagues. He'd be a nice pickup at the rate he's been playing. Plus, he is a career .270 batter. And anyone at 2B could be better than O-Dog's playing.

i got him when kendrick went on the dl to play 2b for me and hes been amazing. making me actually think about jus droping kendrick all together cause there would be no use for him when he gets back.

i cant do anything wrong on this team i tell ya. im 16 games in 1st place. lost 1 matchup ALL YEAR

Wow - as quickly as he appeared he fades away. He looks like he has all season with the exception of 2 weeks - no SB's, no key hits, crappy average-


never mind...
