Postby sigriffey » Fri Jun 17, 2011 2:07 am

Should I drop Desmond Jennings or someone else to grab Charlie Blackmon?
Or should I stand pat?

Depends on where you stand in the standings right now. I think Jennings will do a better job during the HTH playoffs (as he'll be more porductive when they are both in the MAJ), but Blackmon will do a better job of getting you there.

My goodness you're stacked... I'd stick with Jennings. Being 24, he's developed quite a bit, and the Rays have to call him up this year. The previous poster has it. And you shouldn't have any problem getting there, so stand pat.

Thanks for the help on mine. :)

Well I know the highly touted prospect Jennings gets the edge but why? He didn't do anything last year when called up. Blackmon is playing everyday and getting the job done. Plus has been stealing bases. I believe he is 5 steals in 5 games . He also plays half of his games in a hitter friendly ballpark.Potential just means you have don't sh!t yet.
I go with the guy getting it done NOW!!

Your team is pretty well stacked... I'd keep the big time prospect in Jennings (he's got to get the call anytime now, right?). Blackmon is doing very well right now, but I don't think he can hold a candle to Jennings' potential production.
