Doug Mien(however you spell it) have value now

Just wonder about thoughts on his value now that he is Boston.
Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can succeed three times out of ten and be considered a good performer.

I don't think he will produce much, I would only use him as an option in very deep leagues.

he'll probably hit 8th or 9th, which means damon and nomar will be hitting after him. if he can get on base, mientkrzyzewski will be able to score some runs at the very least.

but if they platoon him at 1b (which they might do), he'll be useless.

Mientkiewicz will definitely score a lot of runs with Nomar driving him in all the time :-D

Mientkiewicz's real value is on the field as opposed to roto. Even if he plays most every day and hits around .300, his lack of power at a position where you really need to get HR's stamps him as a guy you don't really want, unless it's as an end of the roster plug-in.

lol. guess i was more worried about making sure i got "krzyzewski" right instead of having my post make sense :-D

anyhow, he'll score some runs, but thehat's take is probably the most accurate here.
