Next Big Time OF?

Postby Mugwump » Wed Jun 07, 2006 11:24 pm

Many of the big time minor league OFs are already taken in my league (D.Young, Jus.Upton, Butler, Pie, Quentin, Guzman, C.Young).

Can you help me out with an OF to add to my roster?

Thanks.

Looking at the top prospects post here it looks like my next choice might be Maybin? Am I missing someone? And what type of hitter does he project to compare to?

He profiles to hit for power and speed w/ a good average. Hard to try and compare him to much as he has such limited minor league AB's this year though. His potential could be a 30/20 guy or so and hit around .280 if that helps any.

Also if you can get Kemp, he is def one to eye, another power/speed combo guy.

Yeah he is also one to watch, will be interesting to see where he fits into the future plans for the Rays.

what about hunter pence?
I was in Los Angeles, and the team was playing in San Diego, but I didn't know it. I had taken LSD at noon. I thought it was an off-day. At 1pm, my girlfriend and trip partner looked at the paper and said, "Dock, you're pitching today!"

Lastings Milledge?
Jason Kubel?(okay, I do have a man crush on him.)

Matt(right?) Kemp of the Dodgers is hitting pretty well now and is probably worth a look
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

Milledge, Kubel & Kemp were gone long ago... I just listed guys at the top of this thread b/c they were still in the minors and FA in my league.

Having said that I do have both Upton bros and Butler in minor spots (Lester too)... Just looking to see if there is someone else to add to my roster. While I mentioned Lester, I am posting this b/c I have been specifically scouting OFs. I recently traded Sizemore and am keeping an eye out for someone young to take his spot.

Thanks for the input. Any other opinions would be helpful. Peace.

way down the line in A ball is colby rasmus for the cards. he started the season in a 1 for 24 slump but has rebounded nicely. shows solid power and speed but still struggling with strikeouts. baseball america seems to like his tools. i'm not sure if he is someone you want to add right now because his ETA is still a couple years away.
