After Miggy's arrest...

Postby AshesOfEmpires » Thu Feb 17, 2011 5:32 pm

Is he worth keeping this year? I was feeling really good about my keepers heading into this season and now I'm freaking out. The reports on his arrest weren't pretty and I'm worried he's going to need a lot of time to get better. I feel guilty about typing this cause it feels callous treating him like fake property and all...anyways...is keeping Adrian Gonzalez or Carlos Gonzalez a smarter at this point?

I would just follow the situation first of all and make an educated choice when the time comes.

Why worry? You have A-Gone. A lot of owners out there have Miggy as their only 1B.

Mcab is definitely still a keeper. What do your keepers look like though if you are considering throwing AGonzalez back?

I have Miggy, Wright, Cano, A-Gon and Car-Go as my possible keepers. We only get to keep 3.

Miggy Car-go and Cano. 3 of the top 12 and the best 2B, probably best OF and at least #2 1B I wish I had your 3! ha ha :-)

I agree with this. Cargo is intriguing, but riskier than this bunch.

I guess the question is do you eliminate the risk now associated with Miggy having/needing a rehab now or at some point in the season and keep a later first rounder instead of the early first rounder. Its not the first time Miggy has made headlines the wrong way, probably not going to be the last time either. 1 more incident between now and roster decision time and I'd be seriously considering this
