Allen Craig is only 5% owned. Pick him up, I'll wait here

.924 OPS, 13/25 BB/K, .217 ISO, eligible @ 2B, Cardinals obsessed with his bat enough to play him everywhere.
He's also an important part of their future with Berkman and maybe Pujols leaving, so he won't be sitting.

Thank me later.

5%???? WTF

Very intriguing, but it doesnt appear he is getting regular at bats?

I needed a 2B with Kipnis on the DL. Out there is Allen Craig.


I picked up Aviles, who should be getting regular AB with Youk out, and absolutely killed me last September as I faced him in both H2H finals.

I still don't think he is going to get regular playing time. He doesn't have the glove to hang in CF and the corners are taken.

I haven't seen him play the field yet, which positions would get the thumbs up? 1B/LF/RF?

Thats the key right there. Figuring out LaRussa's Magic 8-ball. Who ever cracks that code should be nominated for the Nobel Prize.
