    Which SS would you pick up?

    I'm in a standard points league with 12 teams...(1 pt for each TB, -1 for K's, 1 for BB, 1 for SB, -1 for CS, .5 for R)

    My starting shortstop is Carlos Guillen, who tends to get hurt every year for a little while, and my backup is Stephen Drew, who has done nothing this year...I'm thinking about dropping Drew, but I need a backup...

    The top waiver wire guys are:

    Khalil Greene
    Alex Gonzalez
    Yuniesky Betancourt
    Troy Tulowitzki

    Greene is my first thought since he's been hitting pretty well lately and has a low BABIP (.251). Tulowitzki has also been decent lately, but his BABIP is like .330, and I'm thinking he's due to come back down. Not sure what I think about Gonzalez, although he's in the GABP, and Betancourt doesn't really excite me much...

    Who would you choose?

    Greene short term, Tulowitzki long term.

    It's a toss-up between Greene and Tulowitzki. I would go with Tulo but both have hit 4 HR's in their last 7 games
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    Take Greene he plays for a more consistent team

    Tulo does have very good upside though

    Is Brendan Harris still available? If so, grab him instead.

    Is this a keeper league?

    Speaking of SS's, who would you target in a keeper league for next season? I'm playing for next season. 6x6 head to head league. Cats are AVG, HR, OPS, R, RBI, and SB.

    Tulowitzki is as good as Greene now, and he will be way better in the future. Grab him now if he's available.
