What's everyone's takes on this guy? The most thing I'm curious about is if he's going to hit for .326 average again this year. I know he's a switch hitter and hits well for average but this season, he's not been hitting for average at all. How will this season's numbers compare to last years? Also, will he not get full time job at 3b this year?

I would get ready to abandon ship. He was supposed to find out more info about his knee either today or tomorrow after getting a second opinion because it was still bothering him. If he finds out bad news and needs surgery, I wouldn't even waste a DL spot on him if he's out more than 4-6 weeks. I am convinced last year was a fluke...and there should be at least decent 3B options unless it's a really deep league (obviously don't drop him in those leagues). But if you can find a viable replacement like Pedro Feliz or someone along those lines, dump him.

He's not exactly a 5 category contributor, and the knee thing looks dire. Unless you're in a super deep league, almost time to cut him loose.

No, I'd hold on to him for a week or two after his DL (assuming he goes on the 15 day). He's expected to make a full recovery and has been playing fairly well up until now.

I took him late expecting around .290 with pretty decent runs and rbi numbers, but with him only hitting .262, Youkilis up and doing well, and the injury, I cut Mueller loose. I just don't have a good feeling about the whole situation.

From Rotoworld:

Bill Mueller - 3B - BOS May. 25 - 5:30 pm et


Bill Mueller will have arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Friday to help relieve symptoms of an arthritic condition. He's expected to miss six weeks.
The Red Sox will keep using Kevin Youkilis at third base for now. When Nomar Garciaparra returns, they can shift Mark Bellhorn to third and play Pokey Reese at second, but that probably won't happen if Youkilis produces. Andy Dominique will be called up from Triple-A to take Mueller's roster spot.





I think now is the time to dump the has-been.

Thanks for the info and the insight everyone. I guess he'll be hitting the waivers today. :-)

Definitely get rid of him. Not worth hanging onto for six weeks.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.
