Unless you are in dire need of SB's, I would consider taking Crisp out and playing Ben Revere. Revere has been on a tear lately and has a better chance of getting you hits, plus he can get SB's too.

Also, I have David Wright in my league and I am in the Championship. I am not starting him since he has been VERY mediocre lately. I dont plan on putting him back in my lineup unless he goes off tonight then I might put him back in the lineup tomorrow.

Yeah, I started to give that some thought. One of the reasons I picked up Crisp is because he faces a string of HO-HUM pitchers the rest of the year:

Vargas, Beaven, Vasquez (the seattle one)

So I got tempted by Crisp's 5-15 lifetime vs. Vargas.

But you think Revere is a safer play?

I am currently standing as follows in offense:
Me: 38 R, 56 1B, 19 2B, 3 3B, 14 HR, 49 RBI, 8 SB, 22 BB, .332 AVG
Him: 32 R, 49 1B, 11 2B, 0 3B, 6 HR, 26 RBI, 3 SB, 27 BB, .259 AVG

Thanks for your input on mine

I think you stick with what you have right there. I agree with other poster that you might exchange Crisp for Revere, but likely you do have Crisp in for speed and frankly the projection disparity between them for one night is likely nominal.

Yeah I think you are ahead by enough in SB's to start Revere instead of Crisp. Revere has just been hitting so well lately its hard to not have him in your lineup.

I may be in the minority, but I'd put in Revere instead of the Fat Panda, and possibly even Beltran. That offense is terrible. It looks as though you have a lot of the cat's locked up (knock on wood) except for maybe runs and singles. That is exactly what Revere is... a run scoring singles hitter who happens to be on fire right now. Play him and Crisp to give you the greatest chance of increasing your lead in runs while not terribly hampering your chances of RBI... though 23 RBI over 3 days would be highly improbable to make up.
