Wily Mo vs. Dan Johnson

Postby mtarail » Thu Mar 02, 2006 2:38 am

I realize that Wily Mo is a better power source and Johnson is a better source for batting average...

But overall statistically in 5 x 5 roto, who do people think will be the more valuable fantasy player?
Bluto: Over? Did you say over? NOTHING is over until WE decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL, NO!
Otter: Germans?
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.

I'd vote Pena... he's younger, has more MLB experience, and has more than enough power to go for 40 long balls. His upside is still too great for me to take Johnson ahead of him.

DJ.

Pena is a whif machine that will find himself on the bench. He does have upside, but IMO DJ is more likely to reach his and to contribute in more then one cat.

Never draft a backup type player who can be found on waivers- Wily Mo won't be on waivers, DJ and others of his ilk will be
[b]Bold Predictions:[/b]

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

And??

I'm not so sure I'm a believer in Willy Mo yet, but nor am I Johnson. I'd probably rather Johnson, because I feel he has more of a chance of staying in the lineup all year.

Why wouldnt Willy Mo be on waivers this year? He was last year.

DJ is more likely to hold down a starting job then Mo IMO. Remember the carousel in CIN last year? Is it over this year? DJ is not a backup, and he wont be splitting time with anybody.

If you think Mo is going to break out this year thats fine, go ahead and say so, but use some real arguments please.
