Pick my replacement for Zimmerman replacement

Postby rookies and cream » Sun May 01, 2011 8:56 pm

Looks like David Freese, my replacement for Ryan Zimmerman, is hitting the DL with a broken hand.

Who should I pick up. Aviles, Ryan Roberts, or Betemit?

I have the same problem in 4 leagues.
I'm going Roberts, but i like Aviles as well.

I like Betemit. He hit last year and this year.

You didn't mention him but it wouldn't hurt to see if Jhonny Peralta is out there, he's 3b eligible in most leagues. Guessing he is not though..

I'd go Aviles, he's got PT every day and nice super utility guy even when you get one of those guys back.

I like Betemit, great average this year and he is playing a lot more than in years past, its KC he has to.

I had Reynolds when Zimmer went down. I dropped him for Roberts. He's been one of my better players since I made the switch, so I'd go Roberts. ;-D

I'm picking Betemit for the upside. I think he's got some raw power that could make him Bautista lite this season (although he only has one HR). I had him (as a zimmerman placeholder) but cut him for Smoak because he got a couple of days off and I hate inconsistent playing time if it's not easy to figure out (like a straight up lefty/righty platoon). But now he's playing more often so that doesn't seem to be an issue. But I have Polanco and possibly Lowrie holding 3B down until Zim comes back so I'm set for now.
