Rendon is an elite prospect who can hit for AVG...he will help offset Reynolds' low AVG and Reynolds with offset Rendon's lack of power...Rendon is that handcuff for Zimmerman...you should own him...if Rendon hits well, there is a chance he stays up even if Zimmer is back sooner vs. later...and odds are that Zimmer looms on the DL or goes back on there soon enough...there is no guarantee...take the risk on Rendon's upside


Although, I already picked up Reynolds, I just read that Raynolds is facing Jose Quintana, Chris Sale and Jake Peavy to begin this week. All pitching great and two whom are shouthpaws. Don't those seem like shaky starts.

Mark Reynolds is one of the hotter hitters in baseball too...you could make the argument that...in a vaccum...where fantasy fortunes are decided by 1-on-1 matchups between pitchers and hitters that you might not want Sale, Peavy, or Quintana facing one Mark Reynolds in a tie game with the bases loaded in the 9th. Reynolds has stuggled vs. Peavy, been so-so vs. Quintana, and done well vs. Sale in (Quintana's, Sale's young careers).

I have no problem with you playing a better matchup on a given day if you have a better option (park, pitcher, hitter) but Reynolds will cool off when he cools off...the bottom will fall out...for now....ride 'im.

Re: Aybar and Hart
I see what you are saying...you know your league...but to me...Aybar is a guy coming off the DL that I own if I have room and there is not a better DL guy to stash...Hart is a guy I keep on the DL and only drop if I don't have room and my season is in jeopardy...Hart is undervalued... Aybar hits for a better AVG..a little...and gets more steals...Hart hit 30 HRs last year and 26 the year before...there aren't too many guys on the wire that can do that.

Aybar is expected to come off the DL on Thurs...assuming you can hold out, you can just switch them up.

I probably will do that. I still like the idea of grabbing Anthony Rendon (Was - 3B). But then the issue comes back, how would I fit him on the roster? I have to keep Aybar and Hart.
