Juan on Juan Rivera

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Juan on Juan Rivera

Postby Zubaz4fans » Fri Jul 11, 2008 9:16 am

Better bet than Luke Scott rest of the year?

found this interesting tidbit you might be interested in grey.

* Manager Mike Scioscia announced Wednesday that Gary Matthews Jr. will be benched in favor of Juan Rivera for the foreseeable future. Signed to a five-year, $50 million deal that was almost universally mocked two winters ago, Matthews was replaced in center field by Torii Hunter this offseason and now loses his fallback gig to a guy who has totaled 115 at-bats over the past two years. He earned the demotion by hitting just .236/.316/.354 in 86 games this season.

Rivera missed most of last season after breaking his leg while playing winter ball and hasn't done much in limited playing time this year, but collecting three hits Thursday makes him 8-for-22 with three homers since being handed something resembling regular work in late June. Prior to the broken leg Rivera put up some nice numbers in a part-time role for the Angels, including hitting .310/.362/.525 with 23 homers and 85 RBIs in 124 games back in 2006.

I picked him up in several leagues a week or so ago. I had him in 2006 and he was solid. I'd drop Scott to pick him up, for sure.

That's a great heads up, Zubaz. He will now be put into today's Buy/Sell that I am currently writing.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

More upside this year than a Bruce or Pence?

No upside really. Just a solid .280 with 15 home runs. Solid's good. I'd take solid over upside on most teams.

Solid keep you going between the Homeruns and steals. Kind of like my pickup of JHairston while Tulo's pickin' wood out of his hand.
