Alvarez not ready to help mixed leaguers
With Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez, who was called up to the big leagues Wednesday and batted sixth against the Chicago White Sox, I can't offer quite the same optimism. For one, I like Stanton more than Alvarez, for this season and beyond, but of the 26 third base-eligible players owned in more than 50 percent of ESPN's standard leagues I couldn't find any I liked less than Alvarez for the duration of the 2010 season. Not Alberto Callaspo, not Jose Lopez and not Aramis Ramirez.
