Adam LaRoche worth a roster spot?

Postby chinch sacs » Wed Apr 05, 2006 4:36 am

He doesn't hit lefties very well, won't steal, and will only hit 20-25 HRs...


He hits 5th in the ATL line-up behind:

1. Giles
2. Renteria
3. C. Jones
4. A. Jones

Might get 90-100 RBI if he stays healthy and productive...

He already has 5 RBI and 2 HRs, not a bad way to start the first few games...

What do you think?

;-D or :-t
Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

He's borderline roster worthy. If they play him full time he is for sure, but if they start sitting him against lefties again he sits too much to be worth it. If you use daily lineups and don't mind swapping things around a lot you can just use him vs righties though and get some decent value.
