Durham or Miles?

Postby jacopo2155 » Tue Aug 17, 2004 3:54 pm

Currently both of my second basemen, Bellhorn and Reyes are on the DL and i have Durham on my team right now but he hasnt been doing too much recently. Would you rather have Aaron Miles? He has a much higher average, but less everything else except SB's which i somewhat need. Who would you rather have?

C LaRue
1B Delgado
2B Durham
SS Nomar
3B Ramirez
OF Guillen
OF Podsednik
OF B. Williams
Util Ortiz
Util Wilkerson(trading him away)
BN B. Giles
BN Rollins
DL Piazza
DL Reyes

SP Pedro
SP Schmidt
SP Livan
RP Dotel
RP Chacon
P Baez
P Benitez
P Brazelton
BN Maddux
BN Od. Perez(trading along with Wilkerson for Sheffield)
BN Ledezma
BN Escobar

I would go with Miles. maybe I'm in the minority here but unless you own one of the top four 2nd baseman (soriano, kent, boone, giles) at this stage of the season I would much rather have a guy who hits for a higher average and who seems to be stealing more at my 2nd base position. Miles fits that bill and oh by the way, he plays his home games at Coors.

Call me crazy, just my 1/50th of a dollar.

personally i like the veterans a little more than the rookies late in the year.....but saying that durham is hitting 210 for the last 2 months where as miles is hitting 310 for the same period.....so in other words i would pick miles up and let durham go......

I agree here...not sure why Durham has been so bad, but he just isn't hitting for avg at all....I'd say he's droppable in all mixed leagues. There must be better options.

It's quite obvious he is doing so poorly because I picked him up as my starting second baseman a month ago. :-P

I noticed that :-D

Dropping Durham then was one of the few things I've done right in that league.


I would still have faith in the veteran although Miles is a tempting alternative when he plays at home.
