Best option @ third

Postby thedude » Sun Feb 20, 2005 1:13 pm

Alright, who is the best option at thirdbase? Atkins, Palanco, or bellhorn? In a roto 5X5. Out of the other 8 pos, i can get about 190-200 homeruns, 100-120 sbs, and plenty of rbis and runs with a solid ba. right now im leaning toward atkins with a bellhorn backup.

I would go with either Atkins or Bellhorn, but leaning towards Atkins because of Coors. Plus he has pretty much guaranteed playing time. But you are looking for a backup right, because I wouldn't rely on these guys to start.

im afriad im looking for a starter, some one who won't hurt me and maybe contribute a little. :-o

As how i ended up with no thirdbaseman, it is a long story invovling a**hole, lazy freinds and an auto draft. :-C Come to think of it that is the whole story.

my team is not bad (in fact it is pretty good with a great pitching staff) except that freel somehow was my only option at third. :-C

Yikes!! Should make for an interesting year, if not a good one!! I'd go w/ Atkins and hope that he has some kind of amazing, unpredicted breakout year then.

I'd go with Atkins here. He doesn't project as a big power guy, but is a solid gap-hitter with a good minor-league track record as a high-contact, low-strikeout guy. He'll have his share of struggles as a newby in a young lineup, particularly on the road, but overall won't hurt you much.
