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.

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.
