Position Battles-- PHI 2B -- Plácido Polanco vs. Chase Utley

Postby wrveres » Mon Feb 23, 2004 10:28 pm

give Plácido Polanco 500+ AB's and he looks like a really nice back up MI for "Fantasy Purposes" He has dual position elig. He seems to be going late in drafts. So what are everybodys thoughts about Philly and 2B ... Is Chase going to take the Job from him?

I believe Polanco will start at some posistion.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

40 views and four votes ... 8-o

A saberhead could easily look at that and say 9 out of 10 people are just plain lazy. B-)

If Utley does take over second we may see Polanco take over the majority of the playing time at third.

I think he'll get enough playing time to make him fantasy-worthy.

As a fellow Bell I give Polanco permission to take over for the Bell with cracks in his back. :-] ;-D

Polanco is too good to ride the pine when a guy who had a sub 200 BA & sub 300 OBA last season is manning 3B. Bell can't hit, and Utley is very young and definately not a sure thing to get a lot of playing time this season. Polanco should play pretty much every day for the entire season IMO. 15 SB/15 HR and an above average BA is nothing to shake a stick at for a guy qualifying at 2B/3B. And he was on pace for 18/18 last season. One might refer to him as 'Soriano Lite'.

Hmmmm, unfortunately Bell would have to concede and let Bell play. Bell would likely see Bell become part of an infield rotation similar to what Bell saw in Arizona last season. Bell isn't sure what Bell's value would be then. Nor Polanco's. Nor Utley's. Bell fears that this is one of those "only time will tell" kind of situations. :-o

Bell definitely agrees that Plácido does indeed have an accent in it.

I tend to agree with bell about bell. They are sure paying him a lot of money not to play ...

So we have ...
Bell
Rollins
Polanco
and Utley
but only three position's ... :-?
Isn't Utley the 2B of the future for Philly?

I like 'Soriano lite' also, and I especially like his multi position elig, but I am concerned about his AB's ..
