looking for a middle infielder

Postby j_d_mcnugent » Wed Jun 18, 2003 11:36 am

my league counts assists as a category so i am looking for a middle infielder to throw into my line up from time to time to rack up some assists and maybe get some stolen bases. its a ten team head to head league. categories are Runs, Hits, Home Runs, Runs Batted In, Stolen Bases, Walks, Total Bases, Assists, Batting Average.

some of the guys available in my league:

alex cintron
brian roberts
adam kennedy
mark lorretta
ramon vazquez

which one of these guys looks the best?

part two - who should i drop?

i dont know if those guys are really better than the people i have on my bench but assists and stolen bases are the two categories i consistently lose from week to week so it makes sense to get someone to toss into the lineup a couple days a week. i am thinking about dumping dmitri young even though his impending 3b eligibility makes him more valuable. i think i have enough backup 3b's though with ramirez, teixeira, and hinske and i dont use dmitri very often. my lineup:

C Lopez, Javy
1B Thomas, Frank
2B Kent, Jeff
3B Pujols, Albert
SS Renteria, Edgar
OF Kearns, Austin
OF Walker, Larry
OF Drew, J.D.
IF Ramirez, Aramis
Util Payton, Jay
Util Gonzalez, Juan
Bench Byrnes, Eric
Bench Young, Dmitri
Bench Teixeira, Mark
Bench Phelps, Josh
DL Hinske, Eric



ps - trading is a pretty difficult thing to do in my league so just assume it isnt an option to trade some guys for a better middle infielder or to free up a roster spot.

Your OF is pretty solid so dropping byrnes or phelps won't really hurt your team. Cintron is probably the best pickup on the list. Don't expect miracles from him though.

i like loretta out of that group. i would dump phelps just because he has no position eligebility other than dh. keep byrnes.
