Allen Craig, Cameron Maybin or Raul Ibanez

Postby Dasher » Mon Jun 04, 2012 4:39 pm

I have maybin and ibanez in my lineup. Craig is a free agent. I'm thinking about dropping either ,aybin or ibanez for Allen Craig. Should I pick up Allen Craig and if so who should I drop?

What does Maybin give you? If Hype was a category he would be your guy,

I would drop either for Craig. Maybin gives you speed so if that is something you need then drop Ibanez. I personally don't see Ibanez being all that useful the rest of the way especially when Gardner returns.

This

Craig is a huge upgrade over both of them.

I'll reiterate what everyone else has said in case you want one more voice.

Craig is infinitely better than both of those players combined. Add in the fact that he now has attained 1B eligibility, and the fact that the Cardinals may want to try him out at 2B.

OF, 1B, and 2B eligibility? This guy would be like the power/RBI version of Bonifacio (ridiculous position eligibility).

Yeah you drop Ibanez's aging bones for the younger blood in his prime and guaranteed to start. DO IT NOW WHILE YOU HAVE A CHANCE. SHOCKIGN HE'S AVAILABLE.
