In a 5x5 league, I'd start Burnitz at Coors over any of those four (unless I was looking for steals) in a neutral park.

(Although I admit benching Beltran would be painful :-) ).

Nice outfield! ;-D

I'm tired of hearing about how Burnitz has little to no fantasy value just because he plays his stats are only due to the Coors factor.

Well, even if all his stats are a direct result of Coors field, does it matter? Stats are stats, no matter where they come from. When you are playing your opponent, it's not like yahoo only counts a Coors field home run as half a home run.

THe bottom line is that he is producing, and in fantasy sports, that's all that matters.

Not even at home in Coors he pops two more HR tonight. He may not have value to most people... But considering I dropped Kearns for him over 2 weeks ago and he's been my no1 OF since.. He's got a ton of value to me.

Yeah, I think if any of you benched him tonight, as hot as he is, and at the Great America Ballpark (Coors Light), you deserve to have missed those two HRs. I thought about putting Crawford in today, but when I saw @CIN, I figured Burnitz NEEDED to stay in the lineup.

Yup, I missed out on him tonight. I'll start him tomorrow though. Get ready for the 0-for-5 guys! :-b

I also wrestled with the decision for a bit before leaving him in the lineup. I admit to benching Charles Johnson, though. Oh well. !+)

If he does I'll be requesting that you drop any current players that you have that are also on my team. Starting with Burnitz. Thanks for your cooperation in this matter. :-D

I'm one of the dopes who benched him in favor of Lawton, Bautista and B. Giles. Needless to say that I'm kicking myself.
