Getting Hawkins

Postby Dodger Blue » Mon May 03, 2004 1:13 am

A guy in my league dumped L. Hawkins.

I'd like to grab him. Here are my options.

a. I could dump J Dye
b. I could dump a starting pitcher- I have K Wood, J Schmidt, Zito, Brad Penny O Perez. I think dumping one of these guys would be stupid.

C. I only have two bench guys Dye and Beltre (but I'm playing him)
Maybe Edmonds or Derek Lee (I think hes over rated .263 ba life)
I have Preston Wilson on the DL and think I should keep him so someone is going to have to go sometime.
Well here my line up
C-Piazza
1b-lee
2b-Giles
3b-Cabrera
SS Jeter
OF-Suzuki
OF J Edmonds
OF Pujols
Util Beltre
Bench Sweeny
Bench J Dye

Any thoughts?

if holds are scored in your league then i guess hawkins is of good value, but not at the loss of mostly any of your players. the two i question are o. perez and beltre. whether it's odalis or oliver from pittsburgh, they both have question marks. (odalis is too streaky) and as far as beltre goes, i've lived in LA all my life as a big dodgers fan (and i hate the mccourts, both of them), and if your name is true then you should know as well as i that beltre will start swinging at everthing and his avg. will drop to an abismal .230. it happens every year and i don't see why it wouldn't this time around, unless he's finally maturing according to peter gammons, i disagree. but i still don't think picking up hawkins would be that beneficial.

Well I dumped Mota for Hawkins instead I can only play five RP per day so....As far as Beltre I thought I would of seen a decline by now so I'm sticking with him (for now) I actually live in Nebraska but have been a Dodger Fan since I was 7 in 1977 lol. I hate to let Mota go I need era K and whip stats as well but I getting my ass kicked in saves. And Hawkins might get me all four.

I was my first draft and I doing ok but my pitching stats are weak.
O and I have Oladis Peres. I as comfortabel with him as any second tier pitcher.
