No secondbaseman

Postby babaoriley7 » Mon Mar 01, 2004 12:13 am

With yahoo's rankings so askew, i managed to pick up Jose Reyes on the waiver wire but i was forced to drop adam kennedy. This leaves me without a secondbaseman for 15 games. Do I risk dropping someone like Milton Bradley for an average 2ndbaseman or do i go without a secondbaseman for the first 2 weeks? here is my team:: any other suggestions are welcome as well.

Try to trade for one, i'm thinking something along the lines of Nick Johnson for Placido Polanco.

I would drop Lieber and pick up the best available 2B for 15 games. Is Hairston available? If so get him and then when he gets off to a great start batting in front of Tejada, Palmiero and Lopez, trade him for a better SP.

I agree. Dump Lieber, get a nice plug (someone like Mark DeRosa, whos 2B eligible in Yahoo would be perfect), and go from there. I wouldn't want to lean on Reyes for 162 games this year anyways though, so trading would of course be a better option.

Judging by your lineup, and the fact that Reyes went undrafted, I'd look for a good 2B to play until Reyes qualifies there. Adam Kennedy if you can get him back, or the best 2B available.

If O. Perez is Oliver, drop him. If it's Odalis, drop Lieber or Harden. Unless it's a keeper league, in which case: well done getting Reyes for free!

much like the previously stated, drop lieber and find yourself a filler. guys like eric young or aaron miles in colorado (slugger in the minors who may get the job) are a couple others to look at.

I like the Hairston Option. Spivey could fill a hole. And don't forget about Willie Harris (though he will also need 15 games to qualify in yahoo). Mark Grudz%###&*%@^&alanik would be a nice filler, assuming that he gets the starting job over Todd Walker (Which it looks like he will). Miles is a nice sleeper, but You'll need to watch him close in the Spring. How about Mark Loretta? Is Robbie Alomar (leading off for AZ so far this year) on the FA wire?

Heh, I had taken part in a draft were I took Reyes, then with one of my last picks I decided on Hairston. I think he could be great, and hopefully I'll be able to trade him if he does good :-)
