Ryan Zimmerman or Middlebrooks?

Postby coyotesjr97 » Sun Jun 24, 2012 10:02 am

I do have Hanley playing third, though I sometimes shuffle him to SS if I don't like Jeter's matchups, but I'm growing a little impatient waiting for Zimmerman to start hitting. Should I cut ties and pick up a producing Middlebrooks?

Absolutely you should. Middlebrooks really should have already been owned. What size league is this in? For what its worth, Zimmerman himself admits that his shoulder just isn't right and that he's having trouble with it. Davey Johnson is even saying that he's having problems and that a cortisone shot and a DL stint are very likely:

I just don't think Zimmerman is going to produce at all this year. I think he either needs an offseason of rest & rehab or surgery to fix the problem (assuming this is even an issue that can be fixed).

I own both in one of my league and Zimm is on the bench and Middlebrooks is starting (when Middlebrooks is playing). I wouldn't be surprise if Middlebrooks is this year's Eric Hosmer so pick him up asap.

Is this question real life?

Middlebrooks without hesitation.

Sad to see Zimmerman drop so low. I would also cut him for Middlebrooks.
Help me. I just picked up Middlebrooks:
