Ichiro or Bret Boone?

Postby wease » Fri Mar 19, 2004 8:49 pm

Hey all,

I'm in a keeper league and I already have Helton, Beltran, and Berkman. When it comes to my turn next, I will have Bret Boone and Ichiro from which to choose. Considering I already have two OFs, and we use 3 OFs and a UT, should I go with Boone? Regardless of who else is already on my team, who would you prefer? Do you think Boone will match last year's stats, and do you think Ichiro will match his?

Thanks for any help.

Steve

Why did my message get cut off??????HELP MENYAK!!!!!!!!!!


I was just saying I don't think Boone repeats last years stats, but I'd still take him with your next pick. ;-D He's actually a bit of a steal in the 4th round. ;-D

I think you'll see a slight decrease in stats from Boone, but if you're in the 4th round and he's still there I say grab him. 2B is too thin.

On top of that, I'm not huge on Ichiro (the fantasy player, not the baseball player).

I really like Abreu this year, but 2B is a pretty weak position so I'd still grab Boone first. I'd try to pick up Abreu in the next round, or maybe look at a pitcher. You don't want to wait too long before you grab a pitcher.

I agree...I like Abreu....but I would go with Boone with this pick....and then look at a Sp with the next....but if Abreu was there a round from now...I would have a hard time passing him up.... :-?

they've both been going in the second round in espn leagues, but i'd have to take boone. even with a slight decrease in production, man, there is so little at 2b, and besides soriano, that's your best option there.

not incidentally, i would look for ichiro's numbers to drop slightly, as well.

yeah, yes...

I agree. With Second being so anorexic, I think Boone is the way to go. I would like to add I'd take Abreu over Ichiro. Unless your hard up for Steals. Good Luck
