Hi Hey I have Chris Owings as my back up SS to Hanley and also as a MI ….who do you prefer between him and Jose Iglesias?

Stick with Owings. He has the higher ceiling offensively.

why no shoemaker?

Have J. Werth on the DL. Who are you dropping when he comes back this weekend? Options are Michael Taylor, Ryan Rua, and Colby Rasmus?

Taylor is worth hanging onto at least until Span comes back. Check out those minor league numbers! So, the choice would be between Rua and Rasmus. I slightly prefer the more experienced Rasmus, and I’m expecting 20-plus homers from him. Ultimately, I’d drop Rua.
