How many .280/20/20/80/80 players are available at this time in your league(s)? You might get a .270/10/25/90/70 player.
What are Chone Figgins' 162 game averages?
.281 BA, 94 R, 5 HR, 54 RBI, 46 SB
If you can pluck that from the FA pool in April or early May and ride that for the remainder of the season for a bench bat that will have 3B and OF eligibility (and possibly 2B, SS, or 1B too) then you grab it.
That...and most likely there will be an uptick in those stats as Ackley and Suzuki are right behind him. Think of the old San Diego Padres...Alan Wiggins was good...would he have been as good if Tony Gwynn weren't right behind him. Figgins is better than Wiggins...and he now has Suzuki behind him (making him better...or better fantasy baseball wise).

Wow dick strong...you should try selling ice to an eskimo and see how that works?
Figgins will be hurt within a month, your basing your prediciton off of ONE good game. He went 1-8 in the first two games this year in Japan. Not buying it, plus the 3B job will belong to Seagler soon enough
