what to do with Jake Fox

Postby Tigers1223 » Sat Jul 18, 2009 1:46 pm

Is this guy going to get steady PT? I am debating picking him up, but I cant do it if he is only going to play 2 days/week. Any thoughts

I wouldn't count on it. Lou pretty much uses Fox the way he wants to... sporadically. He seems to be going the way of Gamel/LaPorta, through no fault of his own...

C eligibility would be nice if he ever does get more steady PT.

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.

Yeah, and as he is the backup catcher whilst Soto is out, that can only improve his PT.

But to answer the original poster, I wouldn't pick him up at the expense of someone who is playing every day.

3/5 with a double, single, HR, 4 RBIs and two runs. Wake up Lou, this is getting ridiculous

It's so stupid, I owned him in an NL-Only league but had to drop him because we do weekly lineup locks and he just isn't going to play enough. Seriously, if the Cubs had any sense he would be playing every single day. Just rotate him among the corner OF spots and 3B, and maybe 1 day a week at C. There, I just gave him 4 starts a week without hardly trying.

The Cubs wonder why the lose year after year.

Numbers don't lie. The guy rakes like mad, he is THAT good. Aramis will need some rest days. Soriano has been slumping basically all season. Bradley always gets an off day here or there. Heck, have Soriano shift over to 2B for a game if you insist on keeping him on the lineup. Aside from the suddenly-hot Lee, Fox is obviously the best batter they have.

Soriano isn't slumping now and Lee has been hot since May. Fox will spell Aram and Bradley, and occasionally Hill behind the plate. I think he'll see 4-5 starts a week.

Bradley is terrible this year. Fukodome is terrible, Haufpauer is terrible. He should be starting over all of those guys.
