I need to replace Bradley in my utility position. I'm currently in first place and want to stay there. Things to factor when I make my replacement are.
RBI- I'm in first with about a 30 RBI lead.
Runs- Same as above.
HRs- I'm in second about 15 hr behind 1st and 15 ahead of 3rd
SB's- I'm in 3rd, 6 behind 2nd, 7 behind 1st and only 1 ahead of
4th (the player in forth is my only competition for the league
AVG. In first by a few percentage points, 2nd place is the guy who
is my only threat for the title.

Please rank the following based on my needs.
Bill Mueller
Marlon Byrd
Mike Sweeny(was dropped off the one guys roster when he got hurt)
David Ortiz
Phil Nevin
Brian Roberts

I basically need a guy with a high average who gets some SB's, is Marlon Byrd that guy or do I just hope I hold on to SB's and secure AVG with Mueller. Or do I go with someone like Roberts who could not only hold off my competion but may help me get to first in SB's and pick-up 2 points.

Thanks alot

Let's see...Sweeney's definitely the best player on the board. Byrd won't get you that many steals. If I were you, I'd just take Sweeney to keep your leads in the other categories. If you really do miss out on that one point in steals, I really doubt it'd hurt you all that much.

Agree that Sweeney, though an obvious injury-risk, would help you across the board offensively in all except SB. He is worth taking a risk on. Mueller would be choice #2.
