- Tristan H. Cockcroft, Fantasy
Tristan H. Cockcroft: Good morning everyone! Let's get right to your fantasy baseball questions...
Matt,MPLS : Injury risk types who can kill you in a category usually get bumped down my lists. But how far is too far? Troy Glaus types. Could put up good stats, but tends to get injured and kills the average.
Tristan H. Cockcroft: I wouldn't sit on those types, at least not the Troy Glaus types, for TOO long. Maybe you wait an extra round or so to take them, but there's still a lot of value in them. Big difference between Glaus and someone like Mark Prior, who now might not even make the Cubs' rotation to begin the season. Really, what I advise in any of these situations is, don't load up on too many of them. If you take one, bump all the rest way down. If you take a batting-average risk, make sure you get a good batting-average guy to make up for it (think Ichiro).
