Fuld looks solid, especially with Longoria coming back.

Hope that helps!

I think Fuld is the better long term solution ... and he's hot right now too. Pick'em up!
Get rid of Morse! He's cooked.

fuld, not only is he in the top 10 rankings for batters as a whole, with those sb's and crazy avg, but his stats are much more likely to stay constant than franc's.

Remember, fuld gets 16 more games where he will have the green light when playing the sox, so those steals are no fluke.

Why do you think he is more likely?? he only has 98 games before this year, and he never stole more than 2 bases before...

Only thing leaning me towards Frenchy is he could be like Bautista, hitting coach straightens out the problems. Also, he is 27, the golden age for breakout ...

But thanks all for you opinions, any more????

Fuld is the feel good story. Plays hard, cult hero.
But he was a .290 hitter in minors with little pop, and he's already 29.
If you think you might keep Francouer, i take Jeff.

Frenchy always starts hot and dies. I have both on my tieam (riding Frenchys numbers and floating trade offers while I can get away with it) and I plan to keep Fuld and lose Frenchy.

I'd go Fuld in a heartbeat. ;-D Maddon's system relies on SBs and he's leading off with a decent average and lineup behind him. I could go on and on about him, but I'll spare you.

Jeffs best month is April, but he's actually been better in 2nd half the the 1st.

A decent lineup is a stretch TB is 23rd in runs, and 29th in oba.

Not that either of these really play a part in Fuld versus Francouer, but they seemed a bit off.

Jeff is a tease and until he proves otherwise, I shall not believe.

As for Fuld and TB, they will be getting their lineup fixed up a bit in the coming weeks after injuries. The relevant portion of the lineup for driving him in is actually not going to be terrible, and the Rays have put themselves back together after that horrid start. I have no delusion that they will repeat last year's 3rd place standing in runs, but they're not going to be bottom of the barrel either.

Thanks for all the replies.... I notice that no one mentioned D Jennings. When he gets the call, Fuld will most likely get the seat, correct??

btw Melky Cabrera is also available...
