3B help...Middlebrooks or Headley? *

Postby StealingHome » Fri Jun 01, 2012 2:26 pm

12-team H2H 5x5 points league (non-keeper)

Runs: 2 points
Hits: 0.5
Home Runs: 4
RBI: 2
SB: 2

Headley has been working out OK for me so far. Middlebrooks' average is sure to come down, but it looks like the Sox want to give him regular playing time. Who would you stick with and why?

It would depend on my position in the standings. I would be less likely to take risks (Middlebrooks) if I were contending. Whereas the opposite would be true if I had some ground to make up.

I like Middlebrooks if he can get the playing time. News is out today that Youklis trade is very likely. Headley is an average option for 3rd base and I view Middlebrooks as above average if he gets the AB's.

Thanks. I'm currently about middle of the pack (5 of 12). Anyone else have some insight?

Middlebrooks is rumored to start playing either short or the OF so he will get AB's.. The New front office came out and said that it was not a sure thing he would be dealt.. If I was a betting man (which I am) my money would be on him being in a new uni before the all star break.

Correct, the rumor is that Youk is on the trading block. Dodgers? Reds?

I like the idea to the Dodgers I mean they did go after Casey Blake a few years back.. Reds would be suspect becuase who would they give up??? I don't know that farm system as well..
