He had a good May but I wouldn't start him in anything but a large NL only league.
What? How could Utley replace him? Utley plays 2B and a little 1B and has never played 3B.
David Bell is the starting 3B. The backup 3B, Perez, has only had 29 plate appearances at 3B this year, while Bell has 275+. I don't know where you are getting your information that Utley will replace Bell.
I'm just saying that if Bell starts to hit like he always does, then a) he will be a terrible fantasy option and b) Utley might play 2B (if even for a short while, as unlikely as it seems), moving Polanco to 3B. I never said Utley would play 3B..........but regardless, point A should be enough to leave Bell on the WW............
And no shart, it isn't me that has an issue with clutch (although I don't really believe in it), it was HOOTIE.
