Pick a third baseman...
I currently have 3B Aramis Ramirez on my team.
Eric Hinske is on the free agent list and I read that he is to come back next weekend from hamate bone surgery.
Would you drop Ramirez and pick up Hinske a day or so before he comes back? I wish I could drop someone else on my team to pick up Hinske, but really there isn't any room to drop someone else. What would you do?
Categories for hitters are:
I would keep ramirez. He's starting to really heat up and hinske probably wont get back in the swing of things for another week after he comes back.
I would keep Ramirez also.
Thank you both for your replies. I'm really torn on this one. On one hand, I think Ramirez will continue to stay hot and play well. On the other hand, I look at the Jays offense and how it has exploded recently and picture my third baseman in the 5 hole in that lineup and I can't help but think he will put up really solid numbers. Hinske had 18 doubles and 21 RBI in 44 games while he was injured. I wonder what he's going to do when healthy. Hinske also steals a base or two, and walks a lot more than Ramirez.
