Trouble at 3rd Base?

Postby spamnon » Thu Apr 15, 2004 10:54 pm

Not sure if this is a problem, but this is definitely annoying. My third basemen are currently (in the order they were drafted):

Ensberg
Texiera
Hinske

I really was high on Ensberg before the season, but JWill is definitely bugging me with him sitting ensberg every other day. He can't get into sync.

Anyway, I like Texiera but he is already hurt, hopefully nothing too serious.

Good thing Hinske has been playing pretty well for me.

Question is should I try to trade one of them, possibly for starting pitching? I am thinking maybe ensberg cause people have high hopes on him?

Plus Burroughs is still available, should I possibly pick him up for one of these 3?

BTW I am in a 10 person 5x5 league.

Any help is appreciated.

You wouldn't get anything worthwhile in the pitching dept for Ensberg.

I would drop Hinske and pick up V.Castilla and play him at Coors (I'm sure he would be available in a 10 team league). With Wilson and Larry injured he is now batting clean up behind Helton and will put up good power numbers there for you. Sit him on the road.

Tex will be back soon and will have a great year.

Hinske hits for a low average just so you know. I would try to deal Enseberg if I were you, just not enough at bats.

EVERYONE at the cafe should know how high I am on Bourroughs. In a 10 man league I would find someone better but I am the biggest Bourroughs fan in the world and expect huge numbers from him.

(YES! Another thread where I can boast about how much I like Sean Bourroughs! :-D )

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Grab Castilla and play him at 3rd until Tex is back up and running.

You could drop Johnson or Hinske for him.

Are there any good starting pitchers on the waiver wire? You can try to trade Ensberg for a good starting pitcher, but I doubt anyone would bite on it. If there aren't any good SP on the waiver wire I would try to trade Hinske. Affeldt and J Thomson shouldn't be on your team.

Ya, I have a problem at 3b too...

Burroughs or Hillenbrand for my points league, who would you guys rather have?

the point values are...
R (1), H (.5), HR (3), RBI (1), SB (2), K (-1)


****I also think you should grab Castilla until Tex is back...

I have Burroughs, Ensberg and Dmitri Young so currently I am playing Burroughs, just for the average. I kind of punted 3B so I'm not that concerned about it but I just did not see Ensberg taking advantage of the St. Louis pitchers the way I hoped he might. Burroughs has put up #s. No HR but numbers nonetheless.
