RF options late in the draft

Postby Mr. October » Mon Mar 08, 2004 5:59 pm

I was all set to take Affeldt in the 24th rd(out of 25) of my keeper league draft. Now that Sheff has been injured I am stuck without a RF( I know, I know, depth, depth). There are a few RFs left to take but I'm unsure on which is the better option. My league settings are( 12 team keeper) R, HR, RBI, SB, TB, OBP. My bats look like this: Chipper, A. Jones, Carlos Lee, V. Wells, F. Thomas, Reyes, Polanco, Hinske, Varitek, J. Phillips, and Sheff. RF options still available are Dye, Reed Johnson, J. Cruz, Salmon, Stairs, Tucker, Cedeno, Higginson, Mohr, Marrero, Guiel, Buchanan and that's about it. I am leaning towards Dye but my pick is 10 picks away( I pick last in every round). There is also a chance that some owners may try to block some of these RFs since I am the defending champ. Is Dye gonna bounce back and have a solid year? I have read where he has worked really hard in the off season to get ready. Am I overlooking one of the others or is Sye the choice? Thanks.

I think you're right to go with Dye.

i wouldnt go with stairs, he is platooning in the outfield.

dye will play everyday, will hit cleanup (RBI chances) and apparently is in fantastic shape. was listening to an interview with a professional trainer who trained him in the offseason and said that he is expecting dye to have a mammoth year. The ball is apparently jumping off his bat after the offseason workouts. What have you got to lose, he is the best of that lot.
