Hosmer worth Utility spot?

Postby JJGBPD » Thu May 12, 2011 9:55 pm

I have Aramis Ramirez as a utility player and he has been disappointing all year. Eric Hosmer is available... is he worth the pickup? His first week and he is hitting over .300, has 2 homers and 5 RBI with a stolen bag already. Thoughts on Aramis or Hosmer (my other utility spot is Jeter). Thanks!

I wouldn't drop Jeter or Aramis for Hosmer. Do you have anyone else you can drop for the rookie because he is worth a pick up?

I don't have another starting hitter I can drop. My lineup in an 8 team 5x5 Head to Head league is:

C - Miguel Montero
1B - Joey Votto
2B - Howie Kendrick
3B - Michael Young
SS - Hanley Ramirez
OF - Ryan Braun
OF - Matt Holliday
OF - Jay Bruce
UT - Aramis Ramirez
UT - Derek Jeter
DL - Nelson Cruz
DL - Joe Mauer

My pitching is a mess because I sacrificed some good ones to stack my lineup. My bad but I'm new at fantasy and learning the ropes. My pitchers are:

SP - Shaun Marcum
SP - Jair Jurrjens
SP - C.J. Wilson
SP - Michael Pineda
SP - Kyle Lohse
SP - Ian Kennedy
SP - Brandon Beachy
SP - Justin Masterson
RP - Brian Wilson
RP - Huston Street
RP - Craig Kimbrel
RP - Ryan Madson

I am willing to drop Masterson, Lohse, Kennedy and CJ Wilson for Hosmer if it's worth it too. Also, is it worth dumping a pitcher for Daniel Hudson?
