Infante at $10?

Postby crapshooter » Fri Feb 25, 2005 9:16 am

Straight AL league 4x4 12 teams....
I picked Omar up last season after the start of the season so his salary is $10. I personally feel he's worth it, but would not be considered a bargin at this price. I'm leaning toward keeping him, but would like some opinions please.

Infante will give you roughly 70/20/70/15/.280 this yr. You have to decide whether or not thats worth the $10 in your league. For an AL only league, Id say he's well worth it.

Tough call. In a league's first draft, $10 would probably be just a bit high, but if you have draft inflation kicking in, he's probably worth it at that price if those ten bucks fit into your salary structure.

this is a well established league and I also thought of the draft inflation factor. I guess the thing that I have to weigh is I might get him back for 12-13 but then I'd also have him for three years at that price where I have him 10 now and could keep at 10 next season.

Keep him. In an Al only league, any decent MI will fetch at least 13-14, and I have seen some nightmarish bids on players when they realize they don't have a starting SS...can anyone say $22 on Julio Lugo? Ewww...in AL only, especially if you have 1 SS, 1 2b, and a MI, the talent dries up very quickly. Infante would fetch 15+ in a draft, AL only...and I expect a player like Edgar to go for approx 20-24 this year as well...
