Week 11:

Of these 5 outfielders, pick three:

Jay Bruce: 7 games, 1 away, 6 home
Curtis Granderson: 7 games, 7 home
Vlad Guerrero: 6 gays, 6 home
Shane Victorino: 6 games, 6 away
Vernon Wells: 6 games, 6 home

It is a H2H points based league.

hey salty -
that's a tough one. i'd say Wells doesn't make the cut and then you choose one of Granderson/Victorino. Victorino is hitting better right now so i'd lean his way but matters how much speed and runs are rewarded.

Bruce, Wells (might as well use him while you can), and Victorino.

Freudian slip saying Vlad has 6 gays this week?

I wonder if I wrote "6 gays" for Vlad because I subconciously hate him. Not that being gay is a bad thing.

Anyhow,

Yeah I doubt V. Wells is making the cut. I want to start Victorino but can't decide if I want to sit Vlad or Curtis. The extra game for Curtis this week helps his cause.

Offensive Scoring:

1B - Singles 1 point
2B - Doubles 2 points
3B - Triples 3 points
BB - Walks (Batters) 1 point
HP - Hit by Pitch 1 point
HR - Home Runs 4 points
R - Runs 1 point
RBI - Runs Batted In 1 point
SB - Stolen Bases 2 points


So a Home Run gives you 6 total points (hr-4, rbi-1, r-1). While a double, stolen base and run scored gives you 5. (2b -2, sb-2, r-1).

Last 2 week scoring totals for these fellas (most recent week listed first):

Vlad: 13, 9
Bruce: 25, 49
Victorino: 29, 40
Grandy: 16, 19
Toronto Black: 13, 0 (dl obviously)

*zing* Rudy. I think its a little too early for that.

Vlad is dead to me. I think Wells isn't getting enough love at least while he's healthy.

You should draft Vlad in the RCL.

Seeing that my super awesome life schedule has forced me to autodraft for the RCL, I probably will end up drafting Vlad. And I will immediately hate my team for the rest of the season.

I'm not a big fan of Vlad but Vernon Wells. Ugh. Hasn't he pulled the same decline as Vlad but for three of the last four years?

Rudy: Yes, but I think there are differences. Both declines are largely the result of injuries but I think Wells has the better shot of being healthy. Shoulder/wrist injuries have a shot of healing whereas I think Vlad's knees are limited to being nursed along as best as they can.

I think Wells will have the better season out of the two. Write it down.

I'd say Vlad has a better season.

Wells is coming back from wrist problems. Yes, he hit a home run already, but who knows how well(s) the wrist will hold up on a few check swings and foul offs when he's not hitting the ball squarely.
