Bret Boone and Javy Lopez: What to do?

Postby gillaniack » Sat Jun 12, 2004 4:02 pm

Are these guys long term solutions for their fantasy positions both are currently doing terrible and Im debating on making moves at C and 2B. Anybody have a suggestion on whether to hold on to them or deal?

Javy is having a pretty decent year: .301, 7 HR, 32 RBI. But chances are if you have him you over-valued him due to last years numbers. I don't think he will come close to last year's numbers but trading him isn't a very good option unless you can upgrade to Piazza/Posada/Pudge or Martinez/Estrada/Wilson are still sitting on the FA list. He is still an excellent option at the position.

Boone is definitely a dilemma. I think you have to sit on him and hope he turns it around. Possibly, you could grab an overachieving 2B to ride for awhile. Depending on your league, trading Boone is most likely not an option. 2B is not very deep and you'd probably take a big hit right now in a trade.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Boone seems to be turning it around recently so hopefully he will continue on that

agreed ... agreed .
On both players ...

The offers I have been getting for Boone are pathetic. No way I trade him or release him. Currently he sits in place of Hairston (ARZ). But I will be sticking Boone back in next week, unless Hairston has an insane weekend
