Anyone sitting Ortiz tonight?

Postby PavanoAllstars » Fri Apr 11, 2008 9:31 am

He has owned Wang, and I rarely ever sit my first 3 round picks, but my friend also owns him in another league and says he's sitting him!!!!

For my part... no freaking way (not yet at least :~( :~( :~( )
For every Brett Myers there's a Nate McLouth...

There was an interesting discussion the other day about benching stud players. I fall under the category of "never benching studs (Ortiz/Cabrera/A-Rod, etc), but am okay with benching solid players (Maggs/Atkins, etc)". I personally wouldn't bench Ortiz, but I can understand if you did bench him until he gets the timing back in his swing. That knee may be bothering him quite a bit.

Jokes on you if you're willing to sit David Ortiz. Hitter's hit.

I can't do it. He's always hit Wang very well.

I might consider benching a stud SP in extremely unfavorable conditions (start in Coors against hard-hitting Rockies lineup) but never a stud hitter.

If you bench him this is what you will be doing after he hits a grandslam in the bottom of the 9th :~( :~( :-P :,-( :,-( :*) :-{ !+) !+)
