I have the same problem. I picked up Belliard for now, but I could go with:

Cora
Womack
Bellhorn or
Junior Spivey (who should be back from his own injury soon).

Out of the guys you listed, I'd go with Beliard or Durham.

I picked up Belliard in one league, but I dont have that option in another. Basically it looks like it comes down to Anderson and Kennedy for me.

After thinking about it further, I picked up both Beliard and Spivey. I will probably turn to Spivey as the replacement to Giles once he shows that he has shaken off his own injury. Until then, I'm going with Beliard.

I'd go with Belliard. His hitting seems to better then just a fluke. He can bring in the runs and the occasional SB. Until one of those other guys have something better than a hot week. I'd say your safest bet for the 6-8 weeks is Belliard.

ya'll are going to think i am crazy, but the guy has been on a tear lately.... and i can pretty much gaurentee he is available


Jolbert Cabrera, SEA. Booney is still out for a while and with Aurilla sucking it up he could stay in the lineup on a regular basis.

You might have to switch your 2nd basemen. When one gets hot pick him up... when another gets hot, pick him up... etc.... its not fun but you got to do what you got to do. :-/

I had a guy offer me Belliard for Baez should I do it? I also have Womack but his average is sucking. Belliard has a good average but little other production. Should I sacrifice a marginal closer? :-?
