Should I pick up Ryan Roberts for Mark Reynolds?

Title says it all. I have Zimmerman on the DL, so I only need a short term solution really. However, I'd kick myself if Reynolds finally pulled it together.

WHIR if you'd like. :)

Right now, I wouldn't. Reynolds is not guarantee to have a nice year, many just thought he would. I would deep Roberts for now and if you start to see something from Reynolds than I would make the move.

Other way around.

I have Reynolds, and I'm looking at picking up Roberts.

My bad. But what I said still stands. I would take whoever is playing hotter on WW right now. Reynolds is an ok 3B with lots of power upside but no guarantee that he actually connects on enough balls to get the HR. Play the hot hand let Reynolds go. I would keep him on a watch list though just in case that power starts to show up.

They tried to give Mora the start at 3B Saturday,but pulled him for Roberts because his foot was bothering him.You might be looking at a 3 or 4 start week for Roberts if Mora is back,not that he doesn't suck enough at 39 years old to sit a lot.Still,I'm thinking platoon next week.

Do it. Reynolds might heat up, but if it's only a temp solution, then grab Roberts.
