Rotating two shortstops

Postby wannabthechamp » Mon Mar 29, 2004 8:06 pm

It looks like I'm going to have two shortstops soon, with Jimmy Rollins and Kaz Matsui -- What I'm wondering is, how should I go about using them? Should I look at the matchups and rotate them accordingly or play one guy more often than the other?

I think you should try to get an SS who's not total crap.

Well I don't like Rollins much but I'm hoping Kaz is gonna be as good as advertised -- there's not much on my league WW, other than Alex Cintron, Rich Aurilla and Jose Reyes.

What?? Cintron and Reyes are on WW??? Wow. Personally I would rather have Cintron and Reyes than Rollins and Matsui. I if had to pick I would go with Reyes (he was picked in the 10th round in my league).

I like Kaz but Rollins is an underachiever who seems to get worse every year - I'd rather have Cintron than him. Reyes has good upside and will be able to play 2B as well.

I think I'll do this -- right now it looks like I'm gonna have Mark Loretta at 2B....if I get Reyes, all he needs to do is play 15 games at 2B and he'll be eligible in Yahoo, so I can have Kaz at SS and Reyes at 2B, and I can just drop Loretta. This would also help me at stolen bases because I don't have a real stealing threat as of now.
