Which 3B should I pick up? WHIR

Postby 802GREENS » Wed May 02, 2012 5:39 pm

Well with Youk getting placed on the DL this afternoon I need to fill his spot. There's only a few decent players on the WW so which one of these guys do you like the best?

Jed Lowrie, Hou SS, 3B
Pedro Alvarez, Pit 3B
Ty Wigginton, Phi 3B, 1B, OF
Placido Polanco, Phi 3B

I could also throw Will Middlebrooks into the mix as well. Thoughts?

I would probably go Wigginton. Best average, even if it comes down a bit as time goes on, and at least comparable RBI, runs and HR to the others on the list. Plus he's got a lot of flexibility position wise. He'd be my pickup.

I'd say if you are looking for mainly just power with a crappy ave., then Alvarez is your guy. But if you want the best overall player, it's definitely Lowrie. When he isn't injured he is actually very good. He's healthy right now, he'd be my pick. If he gets hurt, most likely those other guys will still be there anyways.

If you need some pop, then Alvarez is your man. He has been looking pretty nice lately, might want to ride it out?
I would also definitely be interested in Middlebrooks. He is raking in AAA and in the best lineup.

I'd personally give Middlebrooks a shot. Fenway is a major hitters park and he will have more opportunities to score runs/drive in runs there than someone like Pedro Alvaraz, who hits in a neutral/pitcher friendly park with a bad lineup around him.

Wigginton primarily due to position flexibility, then Lowrie, then Alvarez. But as some mentioned, if you need power Alvarez is your guy. I can see him hitting 30 this yr.
