3B Help?

Postby MementoMori5 » Sun Apr 07, 2013 2:38 am

Being Aramis Ramirez is injured, who would be the better option to pick up in the mean time; Youkilis or Plouffe?

Both will have pretty similar numbers. Think I like Youk a bit more here.

They are really the same play in terms of stats they will provide and things they do. I would go ahead and look at their next 2 weeks of games, look at home/away splits, projected pitching matchups, etc.

just pick the best guy based on the next 2 weeks, and then go from there. Neither one is going to be a "oh my god im so glad i picked him up now he's going to stay on my roster forever" kind of guy.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

If we were on ESPN fantasy baseball podcast, I'd make a board bet with you right now. Youk ends the season with more HRs than Plouffe. I'm not saying by a wide margin, but Youk has another year in him with 25. I'm seeing a 2008 renaissance. ;-D

Pretty equal, but I like Youk better. And he has 1B eligibility.
