hinske or hillenbrand?

Postby Jungle Bookie » Thu Jul 11, 2002 10:30 pm

which 3rd baseman should I start? I have been switching them off from week to week and it seems like the other guy always does better.

They're close, so playing matchups is still a good idea, even if it can be frustrating to guess wrong. If all other factors seem to be equal, I'd go with Hillenbrand.

Definitley go with Hillenbrand. Hinske has been mired in a bad slump the past month.

Hinske had been in a LONG slump ever since Raul Mondesi left Toronto. Coincidence? perhaps. BUT, batting in front of a slugger is definitely better than batting in front of a guy like Shannon Stewart who's a career leadoff hitter. Why Toronto won't let Hinske bat 3rd instead of Stewart is beyond me, maybe they know Hinske is a bit overrated.

Hillenbrand all the way. If you can find a taker for Hinske, and I'm sure there are some owners desperate for a 3B in your league. Go ahead and trade Hinske while his stats still look comfortable.

I'd prefer Hillenbrand of the two, but neither one are hitting that well recently.

Here's how they stack up for the last month:
Games: Hinske 24, Hillenbrand 23
Runs: Hillenbrand 12, Hinske 11
RBI: Hinske 9, Hillenbrand 8
HR: Hillenbrand 3, Hinske 2
SB: both have 1
AVG: Hillenbrand .260, Hinske .224
OPS: Hillenbrand .693, Hinske .660

Not alot of difference OR help from either.

The lineup around Hinske is weaker and might get worse before the deadline. The Sox are in the market for another good bat, that favors Hillenbrand. Hinske will probably do nothing the rest of the way, Hillendbrand will probably be servicable (I'm guessing .275 AVG, 8-10 HRs, 35-40 RBI would be GOOD NUMBERS to expect from here on out).

I wouldn't dop either if it's a deep keeper league though. But agree with Jorge, in that you might ant to trade Hinske while his early season stats are still inflating his numbers.
