Shawn Green or Travis Hafner

Postby Sandman of Endless » Fri Mar 18, 2005 4:55 pm

I am in a 16 team H2H points league. This is for my 12th pick. I have Richie sexson as my 1B. But I need a backup. Both Green and hafner qualify as a 1B in our league. Who should I pick up as a backup to Sexson?

Will Green's numbers improve at Arizona?

Thanks for any input.

They're both great picks there. I prefer Green, but I bet I'm the only one.

Take Hafner, and plan on Sexson being your backup. ;-D

First of all how the heck are Green and Hafner still on the board in the 12th round of a 16 team draft????

I would go for Hafner.

But if he is on the board is Casey available? I would prefer Casey.

yes, you are probably going to be the only ones. For the life of me I do not understand your Green obsessions.

Sorry Mookie, I'm with them. People want to write this guy off, btu I think the new ballpark will do him good. I love Hafner too, but I'll give it to Green in a close call.

He is going to an extreme Hitters park.
He has a career .629 SLG at the BOB.
He has the most lineup protection he has ever had in his career.
He has a career SLG close to .500 as do the two guys protecting him.
He never misses a game. (Rosh Hanakah excluded0
I wouldn't be surprised to see him hit 40


We can discuss it again come October if you wish. ;-D

Even though he has been in free fall for the past 3 years I tend to agree with you - he will hit at least 40. Some of them may even be for extra bases, who knows?
