In my main league....my 5x5 traditional roto league my corner infielders are killing me.
Beltre: .239, 1 HR, 8 runs, 11 RBI <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif>
Wright: .189, 2 HR, 5 runs, 3 RBI
A. Boone: .125, 2 HR, 5 runs, 7 RBI
G. Atkins: DL
Man....am I hurting here. Beltre I was able to keep this year at a $2 price tag. I wasn't expecting last year's numbers from him....rather...something in-between his prior season averages and last season. He'll come around and produce at a better rate.
Wright I got at the draft for $16 and I am committed to keeping him all season long as I view him as a great keeper guy for next season. I am not surprised by his slow start and I expect at some point he'll heat up (and already sorta has a bit).
A. Boone may be a failed experiment, but he only cost me a buck.
Atkins....well....the jury is out on him. No at-bats yet. Hopefully he gets healthy. I like him as a $2 keeper for next season but if he is "pulling me down" in categories later in the season I may have to cut him.
This is a different league I am in. If we cut a player we loose ALL his stats this season and we gain ALL the prior stats of the player we pick up. So....I can play the wait and see approach with guys like Atkins and Boone and hope they pan out enough.
I also have 5 roster moves available to me in that league. At this point it is semi-likely Boone and Atkins will be cut along with Jaret Wright.......but we'll give them all at least a month too 6-weeks into the season to prove their worth to the franchise.
Bottom line guys.....this is still too small a sample size to cut bait on guys.
