Maybe this isn't an option based on your league's rules, but can you just punt those three games and not have a 2B for a couple of days? Obviously, it would be important to know for sure whether he was going to play 3 games at 2B early in the season, but it might be worth thinking about.
Nope, must have a full roster of position players on draft day.
i like the strategy, but is willie harris the answer at 2b??
The strategis assuming Harris has not sucked during spring training and has solidified himself as the White Sox's second baseman for the season.
Is he the best option in the AL? No way. But Soriano's not available (he's being kept) and Boone will be overpriced (the league is in Seattle). Michael Young is being kept. Adam Kennedy is being kept.
What other options are out there in the AL for second base? Luis Rivas? Mark Ellis? Pokey Reese? Orlando Hudson? Baltimore is a mess with both Jerry Hairston and Brian Roberts.
I'd rather spend $6 on Harris than $10-$15 on any of those guys.
Someone mentioned earlier that Harris at $5-$7 is a bit oo expensive. It might be, especially for a mixed league, but guys with the potential for steals always go for a little more than they should in my league.
Thanks for the input so far, ooks like its something I might try.
