Still waiting on Zimmerman--Drop Reynolds for Mous?--WHIR

Postby Bolthead04 » Fri Jun 10, 2011 8:12 am

I'm just wondering who everyone thinks is a batter placeholder until Zimmerman gets back -Moustakas or Reynolds?

Reynolds has posted a 3/3/8/1/.294/.429 (R/HR/RBI/S/AVG/OBP) in the last 7 days, so I'm not disappointed with him at all. However. The batting average category is the only one I will suffer for this week and next. I'm playing some of the basement teams in my league, and I'm on pace for as many HR this week as I got last week. (14) So, my runs and RBIs are very healthy. All that said, I'm inclined to stick with Reynolds until Zimmerman gets back, but I was curious about everyone else's thoughts.

WHIR as always if you link me. :)

Edit - ignore my idiocy with the wrong player in the title the first time around. I just woke up. :-°

If it's not a keeper and you're just holding a place for Zimm then flip a coin...

Reynolds has been good over the past few weeks and Moose is a rookie getting his first crack at the majors. I'd stick with Reynolds but Moose may outproduce him over the rest of the season.

Reynolds is on one of his hot streaks, which can be very profitable while they last. I'd ride him while he is hot.

I agree with the poster above. Reynolds is a streaky player and right now he's streaking. Ride him until Zim gets back.

Thanks for the help - This thread is done. :)

Well, at least I'm in line with everyone's opinions. I haven't done fantasy before, so I'm not familiar with the value of picking up callups outside of multi-year leagues. I just remember certain players who tore up the first few weeks after getting called up before disappearing in rookiedom.

Thanks all.

WHIR in return on everyone who's already posted, but I won't see any posts after this. So, please don't post anymore links. :)

Thanks! B-)
