Unread E-mail of the day for April 21st 2006.
Keep an eye on Eddie Guardado’s job security, it would kill the Mariners if he pitches his everyday butt out of the job because he will hurt his trade value, but they can’t keep putting him out there if his struggles continue.
Here is today’s unread e-mail:
Long time listener here, I’m Bluenoser from Halifax
12 team 5 X 5 mixed. I was starting to shop my
surplus first basemen, I had Lee and Delgado. Now I
can put Delgado out of the utility spot and replace
Lee with anyone, following players are available who
do you like:
Nick Johnson, C. Wilson, Rios, Swisher, Hawpe and Nevin
With this much talent on the waiver wire, take the best available hitter. Craig Wilson had a nice hot streak but Nick Johnson has an every day job and is killing the ball, hitting .400 with five homers and even a few steals thrown in. He’ll probably get hurt at some point — he always does — but when healthy, he hits. Take him.
Wow very solid list. I agree go with Nick Johnson to start, but you know what? With this much depth I wouldn’t mind shuffling these bats in and out on light days like Monday and Thursday. Hopefully you can start Nick and when he is off bench him and pick up Wilson, Rios, Nevin etc. and if you can’t bench Nick cut him and pick one of these guys up. I’m surprised by this list in a 12 team but hey what do I know.
Have a great weekend everyone, may your pitchers pitch and your ditches stink up the joint!
