What to do with Alex Gordon? WHIR!

Postby redkanefox2009 » Thu Jun 07, 2012 11:02 am

I've been holding out hope for him, but he's ended up on my bench for almost every day this season. I could really use some offensive help with that roster spot, so what should I do with him? Is he going to turn it around? Should I drop him? I got offered LaHair for him, should I have taken that?

Leave a link and I'll help you!

I have A Gordon also and he's definitely heating up (just like his teammate E Hosmer) since he's back in the leadoff spot. I actually considered benching N Cruz today to get him in my line-up. Bottom line is to definitely hold on to him. What kind of league do you play in and what are your alternatives on the waiver wire?

Cant remember who i dropped him for. At the time he was batting like .230 or something. It was a 10team h2h so not very deep league.

Whoever held on to him (like I did) is a happy camper!

I held on to him in one of my leagues but I'm still not happy. His batting average took off but where is his Power and Stolen bases? The leadoff hitter that doesn't steal. Worthless from a fantasy point of view.

I agree about SB and HRs, but he's leading the AL if I'm not mistaken in doubles so it does depend on your league settings, agreed.
