Yeah, I understand one person not pulling the trigger on Lind, but your whole league?

If he can hit LHP all year long, this guy is a top 20 OF.

He probably won't do that:

Yea it's that, or maybe because it's less than 25 ABs into the regular season.

For Lind to be Top 20 he's going to need Vladi Guerrero like numbers since he has no speed. I think he certainly has value in 5 OF leagues as he's either a late round or WW find, but don't go overboard.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

I agree that he probably won't, but if he somehow has an epiphany and figures them out he will be...until then he is a platoon/3rd-4th OFer.

Lind has really improved with Cito Gaston / Gene Tenace coaching.

2 hits & an RBI again today for Lindy.

Ludwick on the bench again today for the 2nd time this week so that Rasmus & Duncan can play. :-t

well we'll find out next week about him hitting lefties as he's scheduled to face: Perkins (Min), Liriano (Min), Outman (Oak), Braden (Oak) in 4 of his 7 games next week. Liriano, Outman, Braden are consecutive games and apparently he is going to get the ABs against them. I myself am benching him next week even though he typically hits the Twins well.
Good luck, feel free to PM me
