Koskie is back, what to do w/him?

Postby ZAZ » Thu May 27, 2004 3:45 pm

Koskie is back today I just realized. He already has a HR in his return from the DL. I have been pretty happy with Feliz in his absence and wasn't too thrilled with Koskie b4 he went down. I can't have both in my league. Any advicee on who's the better player to hold onto for the season? The other guys at the corners on my team are Pujols and Rolen and I don't think I want to drop either of them.

Any advice? What would you do?

Thanks.

I am in the same dilema. I have Tracy filling in for him and playing really well, but i might have to drop Tracy for the Kosk

I would probably keep Feliz over Koskie, I don't know about Tracy though....I can't figure out if he's just hot or if he's actually good.

koskie has the better upside, but theres a good chance he'll get injured again this season. I also read an article about his new hitting approach. His coach is turning him into a power hitting 3rd basemen, which could result in a drop in his batting average, but better power numbers (he already hit one out on his first day back)

In 2001, Koskie hit 26 HR with 100 RBI and a .270 average

short term play on koskie, IMO. he's got eggshells for bones. i would consider trading a bench player for a solid durable player. i'm in a transaction limited league, and i just dont have the luxury to swap at will.
Post your link, I will answer yours to the best of my knowledge.

I'm SOOO Happy that Koski is back. I picked up Bellhorn to replace Vidro in my lineup and Koski to replace Huff, but with the injury to Giambi and Koski on the DL, I have had to start the chumps Vidro & Huff. With Koski back I can move Vidro to my bench, put Koski at 3B, Bellhorn at 2B and Huff at 1B until Giambi comes back.

He'll put up decent numbers (gets runs, rbis, sbs) and has a good OPS.

I think Ensberg has more potential, but he's really not showing it (still only 5 extra base hits in May despite a .333 average). If it matters, I dropped Ensberg for Koski because Ensberg was dragging my team into the ground with his .553 OPS in April.
