Tulo is apparently hurt again. If Rutledge gets the call up, who is better at SS for the month (Reyes back by then), Franklin or Rutlege?

I'm just curious if I should add Rut in general

rutledge was on pace for 20/20 before the demotion... and also while demoted he dramatically improved his bb/k rate. franklin does not project 20/20 and does not play home games in colorado... it should be CLEAR who is better. i go rutledge... in fact, just picked him up for my m.i. spot.

Somebody dropped Kelly Johnson in my league, is he a better add than Rutledge? Started out hot but has cooled off since.

I think I'd lean towards Rutledge, but I don't think it's a slam dunk either.

Franklin's on a 20-20 pace himself and has shown a great BB/W rate in the majors, not just AAA.
Maybe Rutledge's gains hold and translate, but maybe they don't.

The park factor is certainly a big advantage for Rutledge, but I think I'd slightly prefer Franklin, if not for that.
