Rolen or Lowell?

Postby Guest » Sun Jul 27, 2003 3:42 pm

I'm trying to trade for a 3rd baseman and right now I'm looking at either Rolen or Lowell. Who do you think is going to have a bigger second half? Here's my lineup:

C Lopez, Javy
1B Delgado, Carlos
2B Kent, Jeff
3B Relaford, Desi
SS Renteria, Edgar
OF Ramirez, Manny
OF Damon, Johnny
OF Jones, Jacque
Util Green, Shawn
Util Guerrero, Vladimir
Bench Bradley, Milton
Bench Grissom, Marquis

I'm currently 6th out of 9 teams in hrs, so I need more power and Lowell may be the guy to give me that. I'm leading in steals but only by a slim margin, so perhaps Rolen will give me a couple more steals. Who should I go for?

Rolen is a safer bet ;-D He should have great power numbers for the rest of the way, let alone the stolen bases.

I'd go with Rolen.

Lowell will fade (even though he DID have a two-run shot today). Rolen might not have a huge streak or anything, but overall he'll be better from this point out. I actually have Lowell and am about to try and trade him for an OFer, cuz I have Chavez and now, Nevin. If Nevin can show me something over the next few days/week, Lowell is out.

Lowell went 3-4 with a homer and two ribbies today vs. the Phillies. Rolen went 0-3 against the Pirates. I'd probably have to say Lowell though if he can stay healthy. Rolen will play good baseball consitently, but Lowell will have his hot streaks, where he blasts everything he touches.
