I dropped Hinske after he was 0-18 during a stretch last week. Although he and the rest of the Jays lineup have seemingly sprung to life over the past 24 hours, I would still keep him on a short leash. Hinske is still about 10-15lbs overweight and he can't hit lefthanded pitching. Maybe he will come around full circle to what he was in 2002, but as for now, I'm happy with Castilla in my lineup and Hinske on waivers. Proceed with caution.

That is not on fire.

I have him benched too. Your post scared me cause to me "on fire" is 4 for 4 with a pair of homers and a bunch of RBI's.

Actually, he is kind of on fire. Today so far, he's 2/4 with 3 rbi's. ;-D

Hinske will be fine, and he's a good option for a starting 3B in a 12 team league. He's got the potential, is in a great lineup, and has the job for sure. No need to get an ulcer by hvaing Ensberg or somebody who's inconcistent in production or playing time.

From now on I'll post my benched players on the forum so you all will know who to play. My bench (Hinske on it) provided more offesne then my starters. Sickening.
