cut Dom Brown for D.Ackley? whir

Postby Trebor » Sun Jun 19, 2011 1:07 pm

My 3rd OF spot has been hurting me last 2 weeks. Dom Browns tumble over the last month has been killing me, and Rajai has also been horrible (but his SBs are needed, so rather not cut him). I could really use a backup 2B, and I like to take fliers on rookie hype...

cut Dom Brown for D.Ackley?

the rest of my lineup is set...Dom Brown is only guy I feel comfy dropping, given I need Rajai for his SBs & need to carry 5 SPs as I like to pick & chose my SP starts.

Thanks a lot for the reply.

If I were you, I'd cut Brown for Ackley or maybe even Blackmon (if available). Even since Brown was brought up last season, I've never been too high on him and think he is highly overrated.

I'd take Ackley, kid's got alotta hype around him. If he starts producing you win at 2B over Walker (which I do like Walker there too) or you can flip Ack for a decent OF. Good Luck
I guess there was no curse... Boston just sucked for 86 years...
