What's Betemit's value now?

Postby ccsammy21 » Tue Jul 31, 2007 2:38 pm

Will he be an everyday player? Is he only worth in AL-only leagues?

I guess it depends on how quick Giambi comes back, and how effective he is when back.

Betemit might only be a pinch hitter if things shake out right for Giambi.
I'm taking a flier on him though since 2B is a nice spot to have a potential power hitting lefty in the Yankees lineup, and I think he'll get his share of at bats for at least the next month or so.

If he does well, then he'll get at bats in September for you too.

they said on ESPNEWS fantasy 350 that he will now become the Yankees starting 1B.
would that give him more value and make him worth picking up?
hes never even played 1B in his career.

I don't see what Phillips has done to lose his job to this guy. I see Betemit taking over Cairo's role as the utility guy.

Phillips will keep playing until he starts hitting poorly. Betemit came in to improve the bench and be another option for 3b if Arod leaves next year.

Since the Yankees were good with putting Sheffield there last year, I think they'd be good with a SS, 3B, 2B guy there.

We won't know what role he'll fill, but I say he gets a good # of at bats over the next month. The Yanks need every game they can get starting like....tomorrow.

Yeah he has been pretty good as of late. But I say Betemit gets a lot of starts against righties, esspecially at Yankee stadium.

There is no chance that Betemit is the starting 3B for the Yankee next season.
