What are some of your thoughts on this guy? He should be the starter no? I'm thinking about holding off on all SS and grab him late. Thanks. ;-D

He might do all right, but there is no way i would gamble on him as my starting SS.

Highly touted Rockies rookies (??) certainly have had checkered starts. I would hate to depend on him as my starting SS. I would grab someone safer, keep my eye on him, because if he does look like the real thing, he'll be available on most waiver lists.

I agree and if I take him, I'd use him only at home.

But since he qualifies at 2B and SS, he might not be a bad pick to backup both and platoon. I've used Rockies in that capacity before with some success.

I think he should do ok, I wouldn't want him as my starting SS but he seems like a good platoon at 2B/SS. I have him at a .280 AVG 12 HR 15SB and should have solid run numbers hitting at the top of the rockie lineup.
