Need to pick up a FA 2B or 3B: Std Yahoo, 12-team Mixed

Postby CJV123 » Sun Feb 23, 2014 12:49 pm

Hi, I'm in a standard 12-team public Yahoo! league, and I'm weak at 2B or 3B (I have Matt Carpenter, eligible at both, so I can pick up one of either). The available FAs are: Neal Walker, Todd Frazier, Omar Infante, Matt Dominguez, Anthony Rendon, Brad Miller and the usual suspects. Does anyone have a good opinion on these? I'm supposed to prefer Walker or Frazier, it seems, but I'm trying my best not to tank in Batting Average this year (my usual weakness is to ignore this category then live to regret it) so I'm trying not to pick up ordinary guys who will hit .250 with a ton of ABs.

I like Brad Miller or Infante. I could see taking a flyer on one and then jumping to whichever one starts the season hot. They all are very similar in potential and risk.

Omar Infante best represents to bring up your worst category BA and OBP.
Brad Miller would be my second choice (aka Kinsler Jr)

Thanks, guys. I'm kind of happy no one spoke up for Walker or Frazier, and happy Infante was mentioned. Infante always produces but always seems to get dissed in preseason rankings.

I think Carp & Frazier are your best options as Carp is better suited at 2nd and you normally need some pop at 3rd. Infante should provide the best avg and might be the safest but he's going to be drafted 2-3 rounds later than Frazier in bigger leagues. If the rest of your roster is power-filled you might be able to get by w/ Infante

Infante gives you Avg but nothing else. I kind of like Rendon, but I'm also a Nats fan so take it with a grain of salt.
