must be a 2 team league
8 team shallow league and have 1 firstbaseman... Ortiz who is going to miss 5 games. Drop Berkman or V Wells for a backup firstbaseman? Other outfielders are Sheff, J Guillen and C Lee. I chose Berkman. I'm not going without a firstbasemen for 5 days. Whatever you say about Berkman 2 years ago, he has been absolutely horrible the last two months (2 MONTHS) 19 runs, 3 Home runs, 19 RBIs, 220 avg? Compared to Hafner the last month (1 MONTH) 21 runs, 9 Home Runs, 28 RBIs 360 avg?
At this rate, I'll definitely take my chances with Hafner over Berkman the next two months.
I wonder how many championships are going to be lost by people refusing to bench or drop Berkman because of prior success.
Berkman's July RBI total?... 3
Anybody unwilling to recognize a player who has 3 RBIs in an entire month's worth of games as a huge red flag IMHO isn't much of a fantasy baseball player.
