Out of these 4, who is gonna hit the best tonight?

Postby bolts801 » Sat May 10, 2003 12:31 pm

Tejada, Olerud, Millar, or D'angelo Jimenez.

I gotta pick one for my utility releif.

I am constantly getting stumped, and seem to pick the wrong guy everytime.

The one guy i bench winds up getting couple of rbi's or something.

I have Olerud picked right now. He just seems to be ol faithful compared to the rest... even Millar

I wouldnt play jimenez, he hasnt been hitting well, but he is going against Meche, who could easily collapse today. Olerus is a good safe pick, but i think i would take the chance with Millar. He's playing the Twins, with Rogers pitching, so he has the best chance of doing the best today. Tejada against Clemens would not be a good idea. GO MILLAR

I don't understand how you think Meche is somehow going to collapse. He is a great young pitcher fully rebounded from injuries and was lights-out against the White Sox in his last outing. I definitely wouldn't start a mediocre player like Jimenez against him. I don't know you wouldn't start Tejada unless you have another great shortstop. But I would probably start Olerud or Millar if there's only one spot for all four of these guys. I'd give the slight edge to Olerud just cuz he's better than Millar and Colon pitched awful last time.

I read something on this site that always makes me laugh...

" Fantasy Baseball is ruled by the 50-50-90 Rule... any time you have a 50-50 pick between 2 players, 90% of the time, you will pick wrong"

At years end, Tejada will have the best numbers. Dont try to play Miss Cleo. Play your best guys all the time.
