Burroughs leading off

Postby thaklanksta » Sun Feb 22, 2004 12:39 am

I read where he worked on improving his spped in the offseason and the Pads might try him as the leadoff man. I'm in a NL only league and planned on protecting Cintron instead but now that i hear Cintron might bat 7th instead of 2nd and Burroughs could leadoff I'm swaying towards him.

Who the best bet?

Cintron is going to bat 5th. From CBS,

Alex Cintron, SS ARI

News: Bob Brenly told the Arizona Republic Alex Cintron will open the season as the team's No. 5 hitter, behind Richie Sexson. "I like Alex at the No. 5 spot because he's a left-handed hitter who can break up the lineup. He's shown the ability to pick up big runs, and he's got a good eye for the strike zone," Brenly said.

I would still protect Cintron. He had a really solid season last year and hitting behind Sexson will be nice for his RBI's.

Depends on how many teams and how many keepers...but right off I would say to keep Cintron.....with position flexibility being the deciding factor... :-)
