I have Thome at utility. Ortiz got dropped after his slow start, and C. Davis has somehow made it through waivers. Whichever I take would be playing in the Util spot, since I have fairly strong 1B/3B/CI, but I gotta make one of these moves right? Thome is 30 HR, but that average hurts. Which? (Note small benches, so Davis's position eligibility might be a plus, but a resurgent Papi...).
Any chance Davis would pick up a couple steals? Might lean me in that direction... my team isn't running at all. (Im lookin at you jimmy!!!!)
My Team: Batting C Yadier Molina 1B Adrián González 2B Chase Utley 3B Aramis Ramírez SS Jimmy Rollins CI Carlos Delgado MI Ian Stewart OF Nelson Cruz OF Daniel Murphy OF Adam Jones OF Milton Bradley OF Coco Crisp Util Jim Thome BN Matt Holliday BN Matt Wieters DL Álex Rodríguez
Pitching SP Josh Beckett SP Rich Harden SP Carlos Zambrano RP Jonathan Broxton RP Matt Capps RP Frank Francisco P Brandon Morrow P A.J. Burnett P Yovani Gallardo BN Chris Carpenter
I would pick up Davis for Thome, but I think you need to look to pick up some sb guys through the wire which should be out there in a 9 team league, or look to make a trade. Even when Rollins turns it around, it's not going to be nearly enough to compete in the category...

(FYI, I plan on using A-Ram, health permitting, to buy some steals when A-Rod comes back.)
I agree here. Though you could get 20sbs from both of Holliday and Crisp, as well as 10-15 from Cruz. Aram could be a good sell for some more SBs, as Crisp is barely rosterable in a 9 teamer.
