2nd half (real) 1st basemen sleepers

Postby eftda » Sun Jul 09, 2006 4:21 pm

Not talking about Teix or Delgado. Can anyone think of real 1st base WW sleepers?

Jacobs is the only one that comes to mind.

Kendry Morales? I think his job is fairly secure right now. He can definitely hit, if he gets into a groove watch out

Morales has way more talent than he's showed. He was a good young stud in Cuba that was in jail for a while trying to escape, than finally escaped and had Visa problems that took away 2 years of development time npt playing.... not exactly IDEAL circumstances for a young hitter to develop. but for being only 24, his #s aren't terrible. this is probably his floor, no telling where the cieling is. I want to see how his next few months go. There isn't enuf sample really to project, but he's not intimidated out there.

Aren't too many 1bs worth squat that are not already in people's lineups. Guys like Dmitri Young will be back (maybe), but he has always been a bottom tier fantasy worthy guy. Rookies like Morales could pick it up, but I would not count on it.

Adrian Gonzalez baby
[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

Perhaps Richie Sexson, but I doubt he's on too many wires given his name value. Still, .220 is not winning many friends. He could pick it up, but if you can't get him for free then some of those youngsters might have to do.

Morales doesn't look like your prototypical 1b. He's frumpy, not a gym rat, but he's a switch hiitter who's holding his own at 24. The way the game is going, his 2 rbi triple will be the game winner.
