Who is a better Buy-Low guy?

Postby chinch sacs » Wed Jun 02, 2004 1:11 am

Chipper or S. Green?

They are both slumping and I think thet are both hurt (Shawn hasn't said hes hurt, but come on)

So which one would you target?

Chipper.

I could see the Braves moving him to 1B to help his hamstring issues (while LaRoche is out). Wise has played admirably for Atlanta and Marrero is coming back for utility help.

Good call on Chipper at first. Hessman sure as hell ain't the answer right now. Guess we'll have to see how long Chipper's out this time though. Wouldn't be surprised if he's down for several weeks again.

Green

Green, he toughs it out even if he's hurt. Oh and btw, does anyone remember the last time he was 'slumping' like this? He broke out with homeruns in seven games in a row and was on a roll the rest of the season. I think the shoulder hasn't quite got the strength and mobility back into it yet plus the last few years he is a notorious slow starter. Not to mention he's still not comfortable with his on and off new position at 1st base. Give him time and put Chipper out to pasture with the other cow chips.

Same here for me on Green. He's already starting to come out of his "funk". Chipper is pissing me off in several leagues, so it's also a little personal vendetta I have against this guy. Overall, the Braves are all underperforming and I'd steer clear of most of them.

I'd love you help on my post:

The Braves are saying that Chipper suffered a hamstring strain, but if you saw it last night, it sure looked worse than that.

If Chipper is in fact not going to be out a long time, I'd say that his history says he'll be more productive than Green.

As far as the Braves moving him to first base, it sure does make sense, but on issues like this, Cox moves at the pace of a glacier. I doubt this will happen.

Frankly, I don't think Chipper will regain his health this year and neither Green nor Jones will have much of an impact this year. :-t
