Spivey's Back. What should I do?

Postby Guest » Thu Jun 27, 2002 10:34 am


I'm currently 2nd in a 10 team 4x4 league and have a decision to make. I can take Junior Spivey off the DL, but what should I do with Vina? My utility spots are taken by Eckstien and Hinske.

Marrero, Eli STL C
Pudge BAL C
Bagwell, Jeff HOU 1B
Vina STL 2B
Chavez, Eric OAK 3B
Kearns, Austin CIN OF
Anderson, Garret ANA OF
Finley ARZ OF
Guerrero, Vladimir MON OF
Salmon, Tim ANA OF
David Eckstein ANI Utility
Hinske, Eric TOR Utility

Spivey, Junior ARI 2B
Gordon, Tom

If you can delay activating Spivey a little longer, then I'd wait a couple games to see if he's truly back at full strength. If yes, drop Vina; if not, then either Eckstein or Hinske should go.

If you have to activate Spivey immediately, it gets a bit toughter. I'd probably consider him fully healed - he looked pretty good yesterday - so I'd take the slight risk of dropping Vina. If you want to play it very safe, however, you won't lose much by dropping one of your utility guys.

I'd consider Spivey fully healed. Lastnite's D-Back game wasn't televised here for some reason but I listened to the broadcast. They commented several times on how good Jr looked at the plate in the field and on the bases. He's a better option than Vina, activate him quick and you get the benefit of a few AB's in Houston tonite.
