Has everyone given up on Mike Aviles yet?

Postby Fpower » Thu May 14, 2009 2:14 pm

I've been using Akinori Iwamura due to the Aviles extreme suckitude this year. Hit by steroids and injuries, I'm running out of roster space for dead weight. Anybody predicting Aviles to make a comeback this year, or is he droppable? Roto, 12 teams.

Giving up would imply I bought into him in the firs place :-b . Consider last year an abberration, he's a guy with marginal pop and speed and no batting eye, no thanks, definiley qualifies as dead weight.

We draft 42 MI in my main league and I project out to the top 50 and Aviles didn't make my draft sheet. So I guess I gave up on him going into the season.

Thanks for the replies all. That's enough for me to send him to the curb with the rest of the trash.

I try to hang on to players when they suck at the start of the year since so many are slow starters but I gave up on him two weeks ago and I doubt it will be long before the Royals do too.
