Weeks Leaves You Weak
Bad news has hit the Fantasy Baseball World yet again. Rickie Weeks has been diagnosed with a tear in his left wrist, an MRI revealed today. After the panic sets in that you just lost one of the most productive 2nd Baseman this season, you ask yourself “now what”? The bad news is, finding the same caliber of player is going to be very difficult. The good news is there is one player who is sitting in your free agent pool who just may fit the bill.
B atting Avg. Runs HRs RBIs SB
1) Ian Stewart – .205 14 7 20 2
The Fix: Ian has plenty of pop, and plays in a great hitter’s park. He does strike out a bit too much, and has a low batting average. Just in case you didn’t know if you have 600 Abs in a season the difference between hitting Weeks’ .272, and Stewart’s current .205 is only 2 hits a week. If you can get over that then he is your guy. Be careful though, they get his bat into every game, but he doesn’t always start. Typically he starts 5-6 games a week. ADVISE: BUY NOW!!!
Other Notables (if Stewart is NOT available): Alberto Callaspo (KC), Skip Schumaker (STL), Freddy Sanchez (PIT), Felipe Lopez (ARZ), Emmanuel Burriss (SF)
