Drop Colvin for Cain?

Postby rainbowjeremy » Thu Jul 19, 2012 10:18 am

I was really high on Cain in the beginning of the season, enough to draft him (last pick). Colvin has sort of slowed down, and I am not really sure what to make of him. Should I drop Colvin for Cain, or anyone else (ike davis? Lind?)? Cain seams to have the most intrigue

thanks!

I'd take Ike over all of the players mentioned.

Because he's the best hitter of the four. Although it's hard to say not knowing what your team looks like.

I'm also considering dropping Colvin for Lorenzo Cain if anyone else can weigh in. Colvin is in a mini-slump and Cain has been heating up, but I'm unsure if it's temporary.

If it's between Colvin or Cain you go with Colvin. A proven first round pick vs. an unproven 17th round pick. Very easy decision.

50 Ribbies in 287 AB, that's damn good. He's just a straight slugger. If you can carry his low BA on your team he's just a step below the elite 1B like a votto or a prince or a pujols. And as for you, with Votto going down for a while, it's certainly in your best interest.

hit a bomb today actually.

I'm high on LoCain at the moment. I'll get back to you when I sober up.
