Mark DeRosa

Postby ReincarnatedIntoCansecoBiceps » Sun Apr 26, 2009 6:01 am

Im still trying to figure out why Mark DeRosa is owned by over 95% of all ESPN leagues. I have him on my roster, been trying to trade him the whole year, but no one wants him. But at the same time I am hesitant to drop him because of that percentage of how many leagues own him. Considering this is my first year, I figure there is some intangible about him that im not understanding, and thus should keep him like 95% of the rest of the leagues.

by the way i use him in the utility spot, and thus could replace him with any conceivably better hitter on the waiversm like Asdrubal Cabrera Kendry Morales, Jason Kubel, Travis Hafner, Conor Jackson.

Well DeRosa is an excellent pick as a middle infielder. Last year he hit .285 21 HR's 85 RBI 103 Runs. You'll take that out of your 2B everyday of the week. He's struggling early this year only hitting .202, but he has 3 HR's 15 RBI and 11 runs. He also is eligible at 2B, 3B, and OF. That being said, if you are using him at your utility spot, I would go with Kubel or Hafner instead. Who are you playing at 2B?

I have Roberts and Kinsler at 2B / Cantu, Beltre at 3B / and Sizemore, Holliday, Pence, Quentin, and Ibanez in the outfield. Needless to say, his versatility as a position will only be valuable on their offdays.

In your case, DeRosa is the perfect bench player in case of injuries.

In leagues with CI and MI, this guy is great. In standard leagues, he is also an asset on your bench, to plug wherever you need him. Last year is probably the ceiling, but he should sroce a lot of runs and not kill you anywhere else, except steals, with a nice average.

Because he has 2b eligibility?
