Help with OF Prospects Needed

Postby kbarre » Mon Jun 27, 2005 5:33 pm

I am currently in a keeper league with plenty of bench spots to stash away minor leaguers. My team is currently in first place 100-59 in a head to head weekly roto league on yahoo....

My CURRENT OF is as follows:

Ken Griffey, Jr.
Gary Sheffield
Shawn Green
Jeromy Burnitz
Richard Hidalgo
Jaque Jones

Obviously, I'm concerned with the age of this unit, being a keeper league. My question goes out to the experts that have a feel of what is coming up as far as callups etc.

Here's who is NOT available due to teams acquring them already.

Joey Gathright (I have him)
Delmon Young
Prince Fielder
Josh Barfield
BJ Upton
Adam Miller
Kendry Morales
Jonny Gomes

Here are a couple of players still available in our league's waiver wire.

Nick Swisher
Jason Lane
Jayson Werth

Would it be wise to pick up any of these three, or are there some studs ready to emerge within the next year that could help me replace these aging ballplayers?

I also have heard about this guy, Hunter Pence in the Astro organization. Would it be silly to call this guy even though he's still in A ball? What's the word on him.

Basically, any help on my OF situation for the future would be appreciated. My team roster is also in my profile, I believe.

Thanks for your help!--Kevin

id consider dropping hidalgo for Shelton from the Tigers if available. Also Olsen, the kid who just pitched for the marlins the other day.

I'd go with Swisher, Lane and possibly Hanley Ramirez in Boston's system. He is a SS prospect but may be moved to OF.

Thanks for the reply. I was looking at Ramirez. But where's he gonna crack the lineup in Boston? Seems to me Manny, Damon, and Trot do juuust fine.

How about Conor Jackson, Lastings Milledge, or Carlos Quentin? Are these guys looking at getting PT at the big league level soon? I read the other posts, but some info is from a long time ago.
