View Full Version : Who would you rather have on your team?

I have two spots that I am concerned about 2B and my last UTIL position.

Here are the categories: R, HR, RBI, SB, K, AVG, OBP, SLG.

2B: I currently have Junior Spivey.
Available on FA list is: Roberto Alomar, Todd Walker, and Jerry Hairston, Jr.

I was planning on keeping Spivey until Hairston returns and then picking Hairston up because I am lacking in the SB category. Should I stay with Spivey or go with Alomar or Walker until Hairston is ready?

UTIL: I currently have K.Millar and E.Martinez

I'm trying to package either one with one of my pitchers to upgrade my SP. Which one has the most value?

Whoever has the least value I was thinking of waiving to pickup OF Milton Bradley or OF Marlon Byrd. Bradley seems to produce in a lot of categories. He'll give you some SB's and not hurt your SLG%, which is hard to find. Both Edgar and Millar are consistent .280 hitters, who produce 20-25HR and 90 RBI annually. Should I give that up for the upside of Bradley or Byrd?

Also, would you trade RP Armando Benitez and 1B/OF Kevin Millar for SP Jose Conteras? My other RP's are Dotel and Rhodes.

Any thoughts?

When is Hairston supposed to return? He's playing in ST right now, and killing the ball.

Jerry Hairston Latest News Mar. 16, 2004 - 12:16 am et

A visit to a hand specialist yesterday confirmed that Jerry Hairston's fractured knuckle is healing properly. Still, he'll probably miss the start of the season.

Hairston won't be able to resume playing for another three weeks, making a mid-April return likely. Brian Roberts will enter the season as a regular.
