Who would you drop, if any, for Overbay?

12 team Yahoo league Standard 5X5 Roto
C-Johnny Estrada
1B- Mark Teixieria
2B-Brian Roberts
3B-Aramis Ramirez
SS-Micheal Young
OF-Vladimir Guerrero
OF-Brian Giles
OF-Corey Patterson
Util-JD Drew
Bn-Eric Hinske

I was leaning towards Hinske since I already have Tex who can back up at third. Pierzynski is also an option. Or should I not even do it?

From a guy who has been force fed all Mil games - since my Twins are evil and do not broadcast on cable - i have seen probabbly 3/4 of Overbay AB's. Lets just say he hits the ball hard. His league leading doubles are not dribblers into the corner - they are lasers to the gap and many are a good wind gust or favorable park away from being bombs! I would be really surprised if he doesn't end up with 25 homers this year.

I'm glad I started this thread now. I'm also glad I swiped him up before I started it. This guys has 4 RBI's already today and looks like the top rookie of the year candidate. 1st base is loaded, but he's one of the reasons why right now.

FF Newb but Lovin it wrote:well I swiped him up off the fa dropped kazmat...was going to do it anyways for a better SS.

Lets go Overbay!!


I just did the same. Kaz was on my bench all the time, so I really had nothing to lose.
