After Miggy's arrest...

Postby AshesOfEmpires » Thu Feb 17, 2011 5:32 pm

Is he worth keeping this year? I was feeling really good about my keepers heading into this season and now I'm freaking out. The reports on his arrest weren't pretty and I'm worried he's going to need a lot of time to get better. I feel guilty about typing this cause it feels callous treating him like fake property and all...anyways...is keeping Adrian Gonzalez or Carlos Gonzalez a smarter at this point?

I would just follow the situation first of all and make an educated choice when the time comes.

Why worry? You have A-Gone. A lot of owners out there have Miggy as their only 1B.

Mcab is definitely still a keeper. What do your keepers look like though if you are considering throwing AGonzalez back?

I have Miggy, Wright, Cano, A-Gon and Car-Go as my possible keepers. We only get to keep 3.

Miggy Car-go and Cano. 3 of the top 12 and the best 2B, probably best OF and at least #2 1B I wish I had your 3! ha ha :-)

I agree with this. Cargo is intriguing, but riskier than this bunch.

I like any of those combos, but I'd prob go Miggy, Cargo, Cano actually I still think 2B is so shallow

I guess the question is do you eliminate the risk now associated with Miggy having/needing a rehab now or at some point in the season and keep a later first rounder instead of the early first rounder. Its not the first time Miggy has made headlines the wrong way, probably not going to be the last time either. 1 more incident between now and roster decision time and I'd be seriously considering this
When asking for roster advice in these pages, remember there are thousands of different sets of league rules & many different active roster settings. If you want the best replies, be sure to include your leagues particulars in the original post
