Most valuable utility player?

Postby Krunk City King$ » Fri Mar 31, 2006 11:29 am

Last season I had Inge, the year before I had Huff. This season I missed out on Chad Tracy....but I was lucky enough to get Luis A. Gonzales.

Eligible At: 1B,2B,3B,DH,SS (eligeablt at OF in some leagues too) 8-o

A Coors field player and he had a pretty good spring:

CBS SportsLine
Luis A. Gonzalez singled, doubled and tripled in the first four innings Wednesday. He is batting .381 (21-for-55) in spring training. "He's going to get every opportunity to show us how far he can take that this season," Colorado manager Clint Hurdle.
(Updated 03/30/2006).

Rotoworld

Luis Gonzalez went 3-for-3 with a triple and a double Wednesday in the Rockies' 10-6 win over the Diamondbacks.
(Updated 3/29/2006)

IMPACT
Manager Clint Hurdle didn't give Gonzalez a chance to go for the cycle, though with Russ Ortiz out of the game, he probably wouldn't have gotten there anyway. Gonzalez is batting .382/.393/.618 in 55 at-bats.


Pretty good for my last pick at 194 in round 20 of a keeper league to back up Reyes, ARam, MCab, Mark Ellis, Mark Loretta, Berkman, Ryan Howard and Hafner (when he gets 1B eligibility) in the infield...

:-° ;-D :-D

I see the smiley face, but I am not quite sure what you are getting at.

Under our league rules all players (except pitchers and relievers) are eligiblie at DH in our utility spot.

How about Figgins?

He isn't going cheap but he gives so many options for later in the draft.

Rich Aurilia (2b,3b,SS)
Bill Hall (2b,3b,SS)
