Pick up Jed Lowrie? WHIR

Postby tonyobonyo » Sun Apr 17, 2011 10:18 pm

I'm currently using Ryan Raburn at 2B and he has been extremely disappointing so far. Should I stick with him or cut the cord and give a guy like Lowrie a shot? Do you think he will continue to get consistent playing time?

I'd take a shot on Lowrie. Raburn's not the kind of guy who's worth hanging on to. There's no big history of major success, so, I'd say you're OK to cut him loose.

If I didn't have Beckham, I'd pick up Jed.

First thoughts, I'm leaning toward Rayburn. But, even if you picked up Lowrie and dropped Rayburn, there's a good chance Rayburn, or someone with similar stats, will still be available if Lowrie falters. I don't think you're taking too much risk here.

Is Lowrie going to get consistent playing time?

I'd go with raburn. I've had him on my team last two years. He's solid and has nice eligibility in of too if you're in a daily league.
