Looking to Add One of These Batters.......

Postby etl1692 » Tue Aug 21, 2012 5:34 pm

I like Mike Aviles and his versatility at (2B,3B,SS) but I feel as if he is slowly in decline. I'm checking the FA's and see a few that may be worth adding in place of Aviles.

FA's: Eric Hosmer (1B) ; Nick Markakis (OF) ; David Dejesus (OF) ; Michael Saunders (OF) ; Luis Cruz (3B,SS)

Note: I'm in 1st place overall by about 2 almost 3 games, and I wanna keep this domination train rolling! Is this a smart move? or stay put as he is somewhat consistent and is extremely versatile (2B,3B,SS).

Batting:
C: A.J. Pierzynski
1B: Joey Votto *
2B: Rickie Weeks
3B: Kevin Youkilis
SS: Asdrubal Cabrera
OF: Matt Kemp* ; Mike Trout* ; B.J. Upton
Util: Mike Aviles (3B,2B,SS)
Util: Alex Rodriguez
BN: Nick Swisher
BN: Alejandro De Aza (dropping him now for a SP)
BN: Desmond Jennings


Pitching:
P: C.C. Sabathia*; P: Justin Verlander* ; P: Mat Latos; P: Ryan Dempster ; P: Shaun Marcum ; P: Max Scherzer ; P: Jonathon Niese ; P: Chad Billingsley ; P: Freddy Garcia ; RP: Fernando Rodney ; RP: Chris Sale(SP)

Depends on needs. Do you need speed? Runs? Power?

I'd probably stick with Aviles, but from the list you gave, Hosmer and Dejesus would be my considerations.
