Aybar or Bourgeois??? WHIR

Postby ron paul for pres » Mon May 09, 2011 3:31 pm

To early to make a move, but if Bourgeois comes back quick and at the same level, is he a better long term (rest of the year) guy than Aybar? I'm assuming he's going to gain 2B eligibility. I'd put him in Aybar's spot, but the flexibility would be great if an OF went down.

Depends on what you need. Aybar is steals and avg... and the steals may not last.

Thanks. I'll clarify. Looking mainly at steals.

Trying to look a couple of weeks down the road. Morales is sitting out there. I'll probably grab him in a couple of weeks if it looks like he'll be back by early June. Probably drop Bourjos to do it. I'll have to drop another when Zimmerman comes back (eventually), and that will probably be Rajai. So I'll be pretty thin in the steals category. Biggest question is whether it's likely that Bourgeois will keep up the steals and hit for decent avg for the rest of the year.

Any thoughts on the long term plan?

I really think Aybar is the guy to keep here. Bourgeois gaining 2B eligibility is nice, but the question is, does he A) have a clear path to playing time, and B) really have to ability to hit for average? I am inclined to say no, but if you feel otherwise, he is the wise add, as the guy can straight up steal bases every time he's on base.
