Who to sit? Hosmer, Freeman, or Butler? WHIR

Postby tommo » Mon Aug 01, 2011 6:36 pm

12 Team H2H points league. I need to sit one of these guys. What do you think? Leaning towards sitting Butler despite his monster week that he just had on my bench.

I would probably sit Freeman. Butler had an amazing week and I would see if he is still hot. Hosmer has been really solid. Freeman has been ok, his BA has been outstanding but not much else.

Freeman looks locked in so play him. KC faces tb for 4 in st Pete so diversify and sit one of Hosmer and Butler. Go with your gut on who u like best. Better power numbers for butler but better average vs tb pitchers with Hosmer based on history.

Help me?

Sitting Freeman would be foolish right now. The kids is hitting. I'd sit Hosmer.

Ya.....Freddie is an automatic starter, he had a 20+ game hitting streak going. Its down to Butler or Hosmer, flip flop with the hot hand every week, I know I am, cause I own both.
