Postby etl1692 » Mon Apr 22, 2013 1:47 pm

Little concerned Chris Johnson will split some time now that Freeman is back. Even though its said Freeman did not look good in AAA. Anyways should I be looking elsewhere? I need a full time player to fill in. Also my pitching is pretty stacked, so should I focus on batting? OR just go for best overall playeR?

I just picked up Johnson. Atlanta paper said that Braves have decided that Johnson will be full-time 3B when Freeman comes back. Kind of hard to put a guy hitting .400 in a part-time role. As long as he hits, he's going to start.

I would drop Seager before Johnson. I'm just not a Seager believer. As far as those options, either Machado (long-term) or Segura (right now) depending on what you need.

Help with mine?

I would imagine that Chris Johnson continues to platoon with Francisco. Seager just started to get hot. I have a lot more faith in Seager than I do Johnson too. If this 'replacement' is to cover Ryan Zimmerman at 3B then I would think that you're covered. Start Johnson vs lefties and play the matchups (while Johnson is hot) against everyone else. I am assuming that no one needs to be dropped here. I would scoop Machado or Segura. You have more of a need for Segura, but adding Machado could offer more in the way for trade options.
