Dee Gordon gettin called up?

Postby bali dawgs » Fri May 03, 2013 2:54 am

I know he's taking grounders at 2b. With Ellis possibility going on the DL, do we see Gordon being called up?

I personally believe they should shift Hanley to 3b anyway to make room for Gordon, he deserves another chance.

What are y'all's thoughts?

I think Hanley getting hurt makes this very likely, I don't think Gordon is a major league quality player though so outside of fantasy I think he is worthless. If he can manage to hit .250 he'll have value in fantasy but he will put up replacement level value for the actual team.

Yep, looks like he is getting the call, and might get some time at 2b as well.

:( It was all too late, while I was debating and weighing whether or not the Dodgers would bring him up, another league mate snuck in and grabbed him.

according to the LA Times, he is not coming up to be a bench player. I need all the SB's i can get, so i'll slot him at UT.

It's his style of play. He can be a stud for short spurts and he can be a complete dud when he can't get on base. He had 12 SBs in his first 26 games last year, and then 0 steals in 27 of his next 28 games. He's worth the gamble for the time he's up based on his upside though.

I just grabbed him. I'm in need of steals. He's a DL replacement for Walker. Worth a two week gamble. Who knows. Maybe I keep him and drop Scuturo after two weeks.

I added him too, also replacing Neil Walker. Here's to hoping he's figured out how to hit at the MLB level and can provide a ton of value. I already dropped Scutaro last week. Rolling with Keppinger and Kelly Johnson so he doesn't need to do much to help my team.

Is 2 weeks of Gordon worth dumping B. Crawford, who has cooled off considerably?
