Carl Crawford question

Postby warbird1 » Sun Jun 13, 2004 11:42 am

I am in a 12 team head to head Yahoo league the is broken down into 6 categories...Runs, HRs, RBIs, SBs, Avg, OPS. I have Carl crawford...is he worth having for just one category..SBs? He does not give me anything else except for a few runs.. any input?
Thanks!

Can you try to trade him for a closer? Looks like you're pretty thin in that area...don't drop Crawford though.

Try to get Dotel...his value is low, but he's a lock for 25-30 saves from here on out as long as he continues pitching well.

I would wait to see how Reyes is when he comes back. I don't think you want to totally abandon steals, and I believe Crawford will eventually come out of this prolonged slump. I have him listed as above average in runs (especially with Huff finally coming around) and BA.

I'm not surprised. I feel the same way about Crawford. He will pretty much win you SB's every week, he will help your average out (I think he's batting around .290), and he's gonna get you runs. I think he's perfect fit for a utility spot, I'm gonna stick with him.

I came in 2nd in my league with Peirre in the utility position as well. Crawford almost garauntees you first in steals, and he just came out of his funk - 2/3 SB and batted .800 today!!!
