Freel is still a FA in my 12 team roto league. We use OBP instead of BA.
I have Figgins on my bench, and have kept him only for the occasional SB injection. But my question is:
Does Chone Figgins have any more fantasy value than Ryan Freel for the rest of the season?
If he doesn't I'm going to use him in my trades to try to sweeten the deal.
I like Freel, but I'd say hold onto Figgins. Freel is not guaranteed a spot when Griffey, and perhaps Larson and Kearns come back. The latest word is that the Reds might call-up propsect Encarnacion from AA to play 3rd soon, meaning Freel would likely be out of a permanent spot as long as Wily Mo continues his hot play.
Both Freel and Figgins are about 5 games from gaining MI eligibility in Yahoo (2B for Freel, SS for Figgins), but neither of which gets a lot of time there so don't take that into consideration...it may not even happen at all.
