Is Aramis worth the risk of raking in the second half. I was thinking of selling my 3B in Beltre for an upgrade and trusting Aramis to hold down the fort..... But I'm kinda scared to trust him after his terribleness..... this could just be a hot streak. Anyone have any insight?

Wait... your scared of trusting Aramis's hot streak BUT not afraid of Beltre's hot streak [after 2 years of ABSOLUTE SUCKITUDE].......? Wow. :-?

Well Beltre's has been half a seasons worth and always seems to make a deal with the devil in his contract year, so I expect him to slow but not a HUGE slow. Aramis's has only been about a two week streak. It's easier to trust a couple months over a couple weeks....

I traded Beltre a LONG time ago for Aramis. To this point it's been a loss for me, but from today on, I'd rather go with Aramis.

Projecting plate appearances is an important part of the numbers, if you don't, you'll be left holding the bag on a a great player who's losing at bats.



Sandoval hasn't done much to hold up his end since this thread started, but Arod just couldn't pass up some DL time.

I don't expect Longo to maintain his SB pace and his AVG will likely be a bit lower than Wright's, but their other numbers should be comparable across the board. For some reason, I have never trusted Youk, but for completely irrational reasons - I hate his batting stance and his facial hair, really I just hate how he looks. But from a rational point of view, he also historically performs significantly worse in the second half, so, my rankings would be something like this:


why do you hate every day american white guys?


Youk looks more like a skinhead to me than an "every day American white guy". Again, it's completely irrational, I just hate how he looks. Every time I see his face, I get angry.

you're more than welcome to keep track for the rest of the season, here's day 1:


Alex Rodriguez 1/4 1rbi
Pablo Sandoval 3/4 3rbi 1r


Just to update, since July 18, 2010.

A-Rod
13 Home Runs
45 RBIS
24 Runs
.282/.339/.559 898 OPS

Pablo
23 Runs
6 Home Runs
34 RBIs
23 Runs
.248/.298/.371 .668 OPS

So not only did A-Rod out produce Sandoballs. He did it with a 15 day DL stint, and while Pablo turned himself into a bench player.
Whelp, that was
