I've Got One Open Spot

Postby mikeprovri » Tue Jul 19, 2005 10:06 pm

Looking to fill a reserve spot with a minor league prospect who will be a starter at the begining of next season. Guys I am looking at include:

Daric Barton
Conor Jacksoon
Carlos Quentin
Stephen Drew
Brandon Wood
Chad Billingsley
Edwin Encarnacion

I think it may be a little too early for a few of these guys (Wood?, Barton?).

Suggestions are welcome. Here are the minor leaguers that are already on people's rosters:
R. SORIANO (SEA)
J. PAPELBON (BOS)
D. YOUNG (TB)
B.J. UPTON (TB)
M. CAIN (SF)
J. UPTON (ARI)
I. KINSLER (TEX)
F. HERNANDEZ (SEA)
J. HERMIDA (FLA)
J. VERLANDER (DET)
P. FIELDER (MIL)
J. LESTER (BOS)
D. MEYER (OAK)

I'd go with Conor Jackson or Carlos Quentin.

Jackson is my favorite of the two because I love the batting average, plate discipline and amount of doubles he hits. He is going to be a stud.

quentin or jackson are the only 2 choices, if you are looking at the beginning of next year,,,, as the rest probably will not be ready for another year or so....... i would prefer jackson,,, but depending on your team needs, i would also be inclined to take quentin as well... i think both will be solid major leaguers but i think jackson has the chance to be the bigger stud....

Jackson is the favorite for ROY in 2006. I think Barton makes the best long term prospect though.

What will his position be?

Here's the only problem I have with Jackson.

BOTH Jackson and Quentin look to be called up within the next week or so.

That being said, they've put Jackson back at 1B in AAA. That means he'll play 1B for the big league club. That position is so deep and stacked in the majors, that saving one spot for a rookie 1B may be unwise.

Also, Quentin has been moved to CF to prime him for a possible CF job for the Diamondbacks. I personally like Quentin's chances to make a fantasy impact because he plays OF. Yes, it's a deep position, too. But you need at least 3 of them.

Is Jackson THAT much better than Quentin? I'm in a deep keeper league and I'm going to snatch up one of them as soon as I find out when they're getting called up. Does Jackson have lots of power potential?

Quentin all the way. About the same batting potential as Jackson, but steals as well. You ought to free up room for both guys.

Quentin has more power potential, but Jackson leads the PCL in doubles, and you have to assume some of those will turn into homers.
