midaswell go for it, i mean, i dont know when ellsbury comes back but like, odds are that someone like rajai davis is out there and if he gets consistent at bats he's one of the best pure steals guy in the game, IMHO. i confess to being a rajai shill as i like him on facebook, but like, i have ellsbury listed as a wash for this year and even if he comes back i dont think you're gonna necessarily have the 80 steals guy... overall, i'd project pedroia to have better #s. and since he's DL'd anyways, you could play with your aaron hill / b-rob setup.
aaron hill, btw, isn't he like .216/3/9 in the last 30 days? not exactly votes of confidence... i mean he's given me like 11HR over ~240 at bats with that crap average in a league where i was kind of desperate for power and now am considering gordon beckham if he can continue to hit .280ish or something... the only league i've kept hill is the league where i'd likely be winning the damn thing by 15 points if i had any offense, but i don't so i traded felix hernandez for joey votto str8up and went the carlos santana route so i could trade mauer for adam dunn and i'm still 2/12 in HR 4/12 in RBI and miraculously 8 points out... HERE COMES BUMGARNER IN PLACE OF PHIL HUGHES, AKA THE FIRST PLACE EXPRESS.
i dont think you have anything to lose, and if the guy goes for it, you just have one more option at 2B for a potential end-of-the-stretch-run. pedroia is basebally enough as to where i think he'll hit the ground running and not have too much injury relapse. we've all seen the video of him on his knees taking grounders. GRINDER.
