boone sitting again?

Postby Cooner » Thu May 13, 2004 1:15 pm

anyone know why boone is sitting again today (he sat yesterday as well)? And any suggestions for how to make up the 4+ games i'm out since he keeps sitting with no warning?

From rotoworld.com:

Although it seems that a trip to the disabled list is not in the plans for the Mariners' Brett Boone, the secondbaseman will likely be forced to miss another game or two to let his strained hip flexor muscle calm down.
Jolbert Cabrera will take Boone's place for the time being.

If there's a viable option that makes itself available you could pick up another 2B to play every now and then on mondays, assuming you had room to not drop anyone that has value.... But that probably won't happen much since 2B is kind of thin. I'd just take the games missed as bad luck.

Man what a waste of a 3rd round pick, 2nd base deffinetly has the least depth this yr, I think I'm gonna have to trade for todd freaking walker or something....Worst part about boon is you can't drop him outright becuase of the chance someone else might pick him up and he'll start busting ass....

Boone is still on pace for 35 HRs, 95 RBIs 10SBs. Did anyone expect better numbers? OK, his is average has slipped because of his injuries but that will right itself.

I definitely reached for him in the draft- late 2nd round. Don't know what I was thinking.
