Drop H Kendrick for Freeman or Davis?

Postby Pav » Fri Jul 20, 2012 9:36 am

I been contemplating dropping Kendrick for Freeman, I David, or Lind. But, I will be losing the assists Kendrick offers me and multi-positional. But he has not lived up to the hype of breakout seaon with Pujols there...so...

I like Freeman over Kendrick (or Davis). Kendrick does not seem to be reaching his past skills, so at this point I think what we see is what we get. Freeman has more upside. But again, I lose Assists which is a category.

What is teh best option to complement my roster setup?

Any other suggestions are welcomed. Thanks

Drop him for Freeman easily.... Shame there isn't a better 3rd baseman out there because I would Edwin to first and grab a 3rd baseman but I would rather have freeman than Chipper

see mine

Thanks for the response. Thats a good point about the 3B although the other players I found not listed are:

Trevor Plouffe (Min - 2B,3B,SS,OF)
Todd Frazier (Cin - 3B,OF)

And niether have any power or speed.

Okay, so I get Freeman, then who would you be benching?

I would be starting Gonzales since he seems to be heating up. I would either bench Victorino or Kubel. You also don't even have to pick up Freeman with Gonzales...But Freeman is a nice player though. also you will have Longo coming back soon. You will be set when team comes together. Kubel is streaky. Play him only when he hot. I hate Victorino and I am a Phillies fan..LOL!!

Well, if I do go with Freeman, I still I need to bench 2 players.

Also, I thought that Freeman is a better options over Kendrick for my roster and league scheme? Even though you say I don't need him?

You definitely want to be starting Swisher over Kendrick and A Gonz over Victorino.

But I'd definitely consider snagging Freeman. They kid can mash.

Plouffe has 19 PlouffeBOMBS on the season. Get Gonzo back into your lineup where he belongs and use Plouffe as your UTL guy that can play everywhere.

Plouffe left Friday's game with a bruised right thumb, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Recommendation: He jammed the thumb during an at-bat. No word yet on the severity of the injury.
