Francoeur's finally added to Yahoo... worth a spot?

Postby jnormy » Wed Jul 13, 2005 10:26 am

So is he worth stashing for next year (opr even later this year)? I'm in first place in a 17-team keeper points league, lineups set weekly. I currently have Dave Roberts on my roster as a backup OF who hasn't played a game for me yet this year. My starting OF is Burrell, J. Guillen, and Beltran, with Mench as UTIL, Willy Taveras on the bench, and Jeremy Reed stashed on my minor league team.

Players are kept accd. to the round they're taken in the previous draft, so Roberts wouldn't be part of my plans for next year anyway. (Our minor league draft is at the end of this month, so I can add other prospects at that time.) Should I take a chance and put in my waiver bid (#6) for Francoeur? Is he so good as to be worth a spot at the end of my roster until next year?

If you have the roster spot as others have said he's not a bad player to stash, but I don't believe he will be very productive for a couple of years even if he gets the PT right away. He was having some continued strike zone discipline problems in AA and isn't ready for the MLB in that regard so you might have to eat the lack of production for a while.
