Hill or Beckham?? Always WHIR

Postby somervillesoxfan » Wed Mar 28, 2012 9:38 pm

I know this is bottom of the barrel, but who should I pick up? Aaron Hill or Gordon Beckham?? Need to choose one.

Beckham is actually hitting around 300 for the spring while Hill is hitting low 200's. Im leaning towards Hill because he showed life at the end of last year with Arizona and he should hit 2nd in the lineup. Beckham could hit 2nd or low like 7 or 9, but is having the better spring.

Help me out and ill help you.

here are the batting categories
Runs (R), Doubles (2B), Triples (3B), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Walks (BB), Batting Average (AVG), On-base + Slugging Percentage (OPS), Net Stolen Bases (NSB)

I'd go with Hill, at least you'll get something. Gordon Beckham is a lost cause.

Give me Hill also. He may hurt your batting average, but he can hit and i think he bounces back a little. He should contribute in most categories.

I'm the last guy on the Beckham bandwagon, but I'm sticking around. With that much power shown in the bigs once, I still see potential. With a new manager (known for helping hitters) and a new hitting coach, we're giving the guy as much of a fresh start as he can get not changing ZIP codes (or at least ends of town). With another year under his belt at 2B, we're talking about another year of comfort at a position he learned in the big leagues to no small part.

With Hill, what are we doing? It's Beckham's production levels without youth or promise.

Neither gets much slack during the season, but Beckham for me.

Give me Hill. Beckham will still be on the WW and can be picked up if it looks like he has figured something out. Hill has more power upside and is the better bet.

I wouldn't put too much stock in spring stats. Hill is the way to go.

Please answer mine?

Close call. I'd probably go Hill initially, but keep an eye out and be ready to jump in case Beckham starts off hot. He's such a weird case with so many variables.

A little help with the link in my sig?
