Thanks for your help on mine.

I think Rios has no where to go but up from here. White Sox has had such a bad start collectively that it seems they will bounce back at some point. Rios will be among the ones pulling out of the slump first, I think.

I do know Carlos Lee is struggling and I don't think he'll pick up the pace. Ike Davis is very young and we really don't know where he'll end up after slumping this last week.

Going based on form of Smoak, I suppose you should pull the trigger.

I picked up Smoak off waivers for 5 bucks just in time before he became a hot pickup, and hes been living up to the hype he received in his days as a top prospect. i figure Davis isnt any more proven than he is, doesnt play on any better a team, or in any better of a hitting park (both Citi Field and Safeco are poor hitting parks). If Smoak can sustain this production, i can fill my 3rd OF spot with a guy whos bound to come out of the slump soon, and when he does hes elite.

this move would also allow me to free up my UTIL slot. right now ive been forced to play Davis at 1B and Smoak at UTIL.

With more information provided I think you're making a sound choice. I'd go ahead with it. Small risks involved, but probably not too much. Alex Rios does have the potential to be very good.

Help with another one of mine??

I'd stick with Davis. He's better than Rios at this point and that's all there is to it.
