Our league newbie just dropped Hinske!

Postby rotisseriking » Fri Apr 04, 2003 10:26 am

The new guy in our league this year just dropped Eric Hinske who he paid $13 for and picked up Tino Martinez 8-o I was more than happy to drop Beltre ($2) and grab him. Guess he got a little jittery with his start to the season - I'll have to thank him later :-)

I'm not sure. No way does he duplicate what he did last year but I still expect him to be better than the perennial disappointment that is Adrian Beltre.

Dropping a $13 Hinske a mistake, but dropping a $2 Beltre might be worse.

Why the "no way he does what he did last year"? It's not like he hit 50 HR last year. He'll be fine. The only 3B's better in a 5x5 will be Pujols (if eligible), Chavez, Rolen (maybe). Write it down.
