Better deep AL League Lawrie replacement?

Postby converge241 » Thu Aug 09, 2012 12:10 pm

10 team Al Only 5x4 (no WHIP)

Lawrie to DL can replace him (retro as well) but only with guys we drafted who qualify at 3B - NO pickups

options:
Inge
Pennington (unique rules hes almost always SS only)
Jose Lopez (designated for assignment, not much word if hes been picked up just listing him to be complete)

the stats needs are negligible about even how much need some pop (inge) vs some speed and runs (pennington)

And yes can trade and will be exploring trades if it lingers or more 3B depth in general but its a tough league to backup everything especially w/ no pickups

I'd take Pennington over either of them. Inge might be the streakiest hitter on the planet and he only has 12 homeruns this season. Pennington as you said will get you runs and SB. Both have horrid BAs, but Cliff just got off the DL.

Pennington would be my choice too, simply because he helps you a bit more in several cats, which at this point is the best you can hope for.

I would take Inge. Also, I would try to play it week by week if you could. If someone gets on a little hot streak during a week I would go with the hot hand.
