Just had a big injury at SS, looking for advice on who to replace him with against lefty pitchers.  This is a contending team..

The candidates are:

 Terry Lewis: can't hit lefties
Raul Brito: obviously a true CF/2B not a SS
Luis Lee: Ditto Brito

I'm obviously looking at trade options, but for now these are my choices.  Again, just against lefites, Lewis will be my SS against righties.  Thoughts?

Lewis.  Always go for the D at SS.
11/17/2012 8:09 PM
Lewis vs both. I wouldn't even consider Brito or Lee.
11/17/2012 8:10 PM
Yeah, that is how I was leaning but was wondering if anyone had success with a non-arm SS before.  The guy who got hurt was one of my favorites too, just because of the oddity of his ratings...  Ochoa

Heck Lewis hits lefties as well as he does.
11/17/2012 8:15 PM
One would think, but Ochoa seems to defy logic with the low splits.  I guess his other ratings make up for it, never had seen a player with such low splits have success like that before.

Lewis... there isn't really a question here, as the other two aren't even close to being SS's
11/17/2012 10:47 PM
I dont see why Lewis starting full time would be an issue.  He's a solid SS

Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Daniel Lewis   Going back to your comment about 'logic even with low splits'... even Lewis with that 0 vs R he isnt horrible.

Lewis isn't a total disaster against LHP... OPS about .600 with some steals.  I would look for a trade but only for a platoon SS, and I wouldn't give up too much; SSs who can only hit lefties are a common species.

Dittodittoditto:  Lewis

Thanks guys, confirmed my thoughts.  I traded for a decent SS, nothing great but gives me some depth at least Jose Salinas
11/19/2012 6:41 PM
Lewis and not close.
11/19/2012 10:26 PM
Hands down: Lewis

Lewis, Brito shouldn't play SS or 2b he throws lefthanded
