Chipper for Bagwell

Postby Cubs Fan » Fri Jul 19, 2002 7:37 am

I am in a Yahoo H2H 5x5 league.

Right now I have A Pujols playing first and Chipper playing third. I was offered Bagwell for Chipper. I would be moving A Pujols to third and playing Bagwell at first. I jumped all over this offer. What do you think? Is Bagwell a better bet for a big second half? Am I making a good move considering Bagwell is playing through nagging injuries?

I would have kept Chipper because Bags decline is most likely a result of the shoulder surgery he had. Conversely, Chipper is basically healthy and just underperforming. I think Chipper will have a better 2nd half, and Bagwell will probably play about the same.

That's a difficult call. AirTimid's right about Bagwell's health; the trouble is that nobody seems to know what's wrong with Chipper, which makes his second half tough to project. He might bounce back in a big way, but I still think I'd be tempted to accept Bagwell, in part because Houston's entire lineup should become more productive.
