2B help please. Need replacement for Utley.

Postby Bartolo's Colon » Thu Mar 24, 2011 1:06 pm

In a 10 team Roto 5x5 league, auction with no bench (25 active players), I filled a MI slot with Chase Utley knowing that if I got him cheap, he could work out for me later in the season but that I would have to replace him initially.

I have Cano at 2B and Starlin Castro at SS and need a middle infielder and am trying to find the best choice among the available options. I am not trying to fill one category but want a solid player.

The available MIs are:

Tsyoshi Nishioka
Mike Aviles
Freddy Sanchez
Orlando Hudson
Macier Itzuris
Sean Rodrigues
Bill Hall
Mark Ellis
Clint Barmes
Alexi Casilla
Carlos Guillen
Jed Lowrie
Ty Wigginton
Eric Young
Reid Brignac
Brad Emaus

Thanks for your help.

Go with Nishioki.

I am hearing really good things about him. He is young and should bat 2nd (I think) in a decent lineup. In some leagues he qualifies at both 2B and SS.

Either of the top 2 are fine choices. Aviles is going to hit leadoff and has had a big spring; he'll get a few knocks as well but fewer sb's than Nish
