So far he has done nothing but kill my team. His average is pretty good at .295, but he only has 4 R, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 0 SB. How much longer will this junk go on for? Im still not sold on him like Peter Gammons is. With guys moving quickly from FA, I dont want to miss out. Do you think that either Carlos Pena, Sean Burroughs, Hee Seop Choi, or Adam Everett will end up with better years (in a 5x5 roto) than Cintron? I am getting killed in Runs, RBI's, and SB in my league and could use a boost. What do you think?

I don't necessarily think that any of the guys you have listed are better than Cintron, but that isn't saying much. Don't be afraid to drop Cintron in your league, I don't think there is much of a threat of anyone picking him up.

I think Cinturon may come back, and I'm sticking with him on my teeam, too. I don't thinnk any of those players are gonna have better stats than his (although Choi is off to a hot start).

Still early imo I think he will bounce back fine. If you based the success of your team on Cintron you are in trouble to start with.

By the way I'll give one stat he wont improve: SB. It;s amazing how such a skinny guy could be so slow. I own Cintron in my most important league and will stick with him.
Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

I like Cintron because he bats fifth - he should get a lot of RBIs with his .300 average. I had him as my SS but dropped him because someone in my league gave up on Furcal.

A guy with a .380 OBP and .420 SLG is good to have in your lineup. Especially one that qualifies as a SS and 3B. The fact that his runs and RBIs are low isn't his fault, it's the fault of the people batting around him (Gonzalez knocking in runs and people behind him doing nothing).

Play the averages - and for Cintron -good on base & decent slugging means that runs and rbis will come.
