Josh Fields (3B, OF - CWS)

Postby BitterDodgerFan » Tue Mar 18, 2008 12:19 am

okay, so everyone's saying crede will start at 3B over fields. is this for real? fields showed some crazy power last year and all things pointed towards big 08 season and now he might be sent to AAA? i know fields sucks at defense, but do you think they will really start crede over him? is fields worth holding onto even if crede doesn't get traded? i don't think crede is going anywhere, they had all offseason to get rid of him and nobody wanted him...

It's a tough situation. During reports from SoxFest, I heard the GM (Kenny Williams) say that Fields has proven himself, but I think that Kenny was also planning on having Crede traded by now. There is some talk of having Fields start in LF (with Swisher in CF and Dye in RF), but I know that they also like Owens, so Fields might start the season in AAA...which I wouldn't understand since Fields hit the ball so well in the 2nd half last year.

Most recent reports I've read is that Fields will start the season at third unitl Crede is back. Then once Crede returns he could move to the OF. Wish I knew more b/c I own Fields as well.

Not a White Sox fan by any measure. Maybe a Sox fan can shed some light or someone else who knows more about Crede. The only things I know is that he is coming BACK from BACK surgery and hasn't been all that good in his few games this Spring. What else I've seen is that the Sox are in trade talks with the GIants, but are still pretty far apart.

"The White Sox will open the season with Fields at third base, but he will have to hold off Joe Crede, if the veteran 3B is not dealt to another team. Fields has great power and is dual-eligible (OF) in most Fantasy formats. Consider him a sleeper in all formats."

Maybe, it makes sense to draft Josh and Longoria

I'm a Sox fan and I get the impression that Crede will start at 3rd with Fields going to AAA.
My opinion is that Kenny Williams desperately wants to trade Crede but won't get value for him until teams see him suceed in the regular season. Meanwhile, Fields, while showing great power potential, strikes out WAY too much and isn't even close to Crede defensively.
Things could change but right now I think Fields goes to the minors until Crede gets traded or gets hurt again.

Crede will likely be starting at 3B if healthy and barring a trade. Fields proved himself last year, and the team knows he's their future at the hot corner, so even if he does get sent down it will not be for too long.

Fields got HBP and was taken out of today's game in the 1st inning. If he is hurt even remotely, I think he will be sent down.
