Am I in trouble at 3b?

Postby Quaker » Mon Mar 29, 2004 12:50 am

In a points league, I have Ensberg and Dmitri Young eligible to play third. Since Ensberg might platoon, should I shop around for another 3b? Here's the rest of my team

C- LeCroy
1b- Sweeney
2b- Boone
SS- Arod
3b- Ensberg
IF- Klesko
LF- Berkman
CF- Wells
RF- Nevin
OF- Giles
Util- Griffey
Util- D Young
Bench- Kaz Matsui, Jason Phillips, Geoff Jenkinks

SP- Millwood, Mulder, Mussina, Wade Miller, C Zambrano
RP- Nathan, Mantei, A Lopez, Baez, Looper

Who's availiable in the FA pool?
Yes doctor, I am sick.

Sick of those who are hypocrites.

10 team, with the following point system

Hitters R (1), H (1), 1B (1), 2B (2), 3B (3), HR (4), RBI (1.5), SH (1), SF (1), SB (1), BB (1), K (-1), GIDP (-1), E (-2)

Pitchers W (13), CG (15), SHO (20), SV (6), HR (-2), HBP (-2), K (1.5), GIDP (2), HLD (3)

Too many categories for my liking, but I had no power over it. Favors power and avg, doesn't really reward speed

If Ensberg really does platoon, Crede has some upside. Plus Young is not at all bad for your points league, except maybe strikeouts. You might be better off sitting tight until the season starts to see what's up with Ensberg.

I picked up Crede and dropped Baez. I'm going to see how the first few weeks go.

There hasn't been any confirmation of the Ensberg's possible platoon, but speculation due to the pickup of Lamb and the perceived Jimy-Morgan relationship.
