Waiver Pickup: Escobar, Weeks, Aybar?

Postby intalexual » Sat Jun 25, 2011 1:35 pm

Looking to drop Shin-Soo Choo after his recent injury and being placed on the DL and possibly being out for 6 weeks for one of the following:

I'm short on SB's and wouldn't mind having a higher average.
These are who I'm considering in the following order:
Alcides Escobar, Jemile Weeks, or Erick Aybar

Any suggestions/opinions are greatly appreciated.

H2H league with the following Categories (R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, W, S, K, ERA, WHIP)
If this helps, here is my current team as it stands:

C
Alex Avila
(Det - C)
1B
Miguel Cabrera
(Det - 1B)
2B
Dustin Pedroia
(Bos - 2B)
3B
Mark Reynolds
(Bal - 3B)
SS
Starlin Castro
(ChC - SS)
OF
Shane Victorino
(Phi - OF)

I'd pick up Erick Aybar. He began the month in a slump and seems to be coming out of it. Plus, he'll give you some sBs here and there with a BA slightly under .300

Aybar or Weeks. It's hard to deny Weeks's hot start. He may be worth a flyer until he cools off. The word is that they don't plan on sending him back down anytime soon.

Ok, thanks for your opinions guys! After looking at my records, it looks like I'm short on HR, and RBI's too in addition to SB. Looks like Aybar can give me each of those 3 categories better than the other 2...sound about right?
