Pick up Bonifacio? Help...playoffs. WHIR**

Postby StealingHome » Tue Sep 03, 2013 10:06 am

10-team, 5x5, H2H keeper (k) league.

C - V. Martinez
1B - Votto - k
2B - Kinsler
SS - Tulo - k
3B - Brett Lawrie
LF - Trout (LF,CF) - k
CF - Puig (CF,RF) - k
RF - Bruce
Util - David Ortiz (1B)
BN - Carlos Gomez (CF) - k
BN - Zobrist (SS,2B,RF) - k

I have been going with the hot hand at 3B most of the season. Emilio Bonifacio (2B,3B,LF,CF) is available on the WW along with Aramis Ramirez (dropped by an owner some time ago). I often do not win the SB category and see how Bonifacio would help in that respect. But the playoffs start next week, and part of me just wants to play it safe and drop Lawrie and pick up Ramirez (who appears to be healthy finally and finished strong last season). I have already secured a spot in the playoffs. Should I pick up Bonifacio or Aramis Ramirez (or stick with Lawrie)?

Thanks. WHIR

I would stick with Lawrie he has been playing well instead of taking a chance on the other two.

All your options are better honestly. You have no one else you can drop for him so nah.

I would stick with Lawrie. Ramirez has not been great since returning from injury.

Keep Lawrie. Better upside all around. Bonafacio is hot, but unlikely to maintain.

Not great, but he has been pretty good. I would say at least as good as Lawrie recently, and ARam has a longer history of success at the major league level.
