I need a shortstop off the WW to replace Tulowitzki?

Postby smitty10j » Thu Jun 14, 2012 8:27 pm

Tulowitzki is the only shortstop I have on my roster, and I have played the last 2 weeks without a shortstop (I won both weeks) but with him getting hurt in his rehab assignment, I figured it was time to stop pushing my luck, so I am looking for suggestions on shortstops to pick up, and of course my plan is to drop Ervin Santana and pick up a SS. Or I guess I could also try and make a trade, so I would accept trade suggestions as well. Thanks.

WHIR

10-Team H2H League, not a keeper league, 10 batting and 10 pitching categories. If there is any other information you would like to know, just ask.

Categories: Hitting : R, H, HR, RBI, SB, K, TB, AVG, OBP, OPS,
Pitching: IP (Min 18 IP per week), W, L, CG, SHO, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP

Here is some SS available that I am looking at but I will listen to other suggestions if you have them.
Jhonny Peralta
Alcides Escobar
Zach Cozart
Marco Scutero
Evereth Cabrera
Willie Bloomquist

Scutaro is definitely the first choice, IMO. Cozart and Cabrera behind him, with Bloomquist in fourth.

Cozart is #1 for me. Scutaro is 2. Of course, assuming that Plouffe is taken.

Yeah I was going to pick up Poluffe when I got on today, but he was picked up already.

I would have to go ahead and say Zack Cozart. Scutaro and Cozart both bat near the top of the order, but Scutaro doesn't offer much in power or speed.
Cozart has better power/speed combination.

It is easily Jhonny Peralta and it's not even close.

Look at the setup of his league. It really penalizes players with a low OBP by having both OBP and OPS as a category.

Escobar is out, since SB is a very small component for the week (Unless you are very strong everywhere but steals).

Cozart, Scutero, Bloomquist don't walk.

Cabrera is doing well so far, but not too much raw data on him yet and he plays in a great pitcher's park.

Peralta has been hot recently too,

Peralta is your man.
