Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

Allen Craig will be a beast bench player with his position availability (2b + Of and soon 1b and potentially 3b). The thing with Craig will be his playing time, he isn't a good fielder any where he plays so don't expect time at 2b when Berkman comes back, he might get a start 3-4 days a week and pinch hit the other 3 days.
Boesch has struggled early this season, but I expect him to turn it around.
It really depends, if Boesch is your every day starting fielder than I would kind of be inclined to stick because your likely to miss three starts a week with Craig.
What are the other fa options at 1b? If I drafted Youk, I would have targeted a solid back up for him.
I originally drafted Lucas Duda but dropped him for Mike Trout.
Duda's still available... Luke Scott's also available
Boesch is occasionally getting starts for my team at the UTL spot when he gets a lefty matchup. The rest of my OF consists of Carlos Gonzalez, Nelson Cruz, Alex Gordon, Mike Trout, and Drew Stubbs

Yeah, St. Louis has a problem of too many good position players, too few positions. Greene, Carpenter, Jay, Craig, there is a bit of a log jam with playing time.
I sort of wish an American league team with a DH spot trades for him.
I'm sure Craig will be an everyday player. He's four days off of the DL and already hitting cleanup between Holliday and Freese. The Cards wouldn't put a reserve player at cleanup. He's a playoff hero with a potential of .300 BA and 30 hrs.
The only "if" with him is - injuries.

With Berkman in he won't be batting clean up, and it becomes an issue where to put him in the field after that, because everywhere but the outfield and first he's a liability.
I like Craig, but I just don't see him playing more than four days a week when Berkman comes back.
