Who do I pick up? WHIR

Postby razzy » Sat Jun 11, 2011 2:17 pm

I am in a league that allows one free agent hitter move until early August. My hitters are C Santana, Youkilis, Zobrist, A-Rod, Alexei Ramirez, Bourn, Crawford, N Cruz, and Morneau. I am in third place with a shot at moving up, especially in the offensive categories (RBI, AVG, HR, OPS, RUNS, SB), I think the obvious move at this point is replacing Morneau, who has a bad wrist, pinched neck, still recovering from his concussion, etc... some of the available hitters are...

Berkman
Quentin
A Lind
Morrison
D Ortiz

Those seem to be the best 5 out there. Which one can be counted on to not get hurt and to continue to perform well for the duration of the season? Especially because I cant make any more moves in this league... thanks

Quentin could be a good pick. Especially if the guys around him start hitting again (Done, oops Dunn, and Rios).

Berkman would be my next choice. Morrison would be last on that list for me.

That's quite a good group.
I like Quentin, Berkman, Ortiz.
Probably Quentin, but Ortiz is mashing the best.
