Carlos Gonzalez, Justin Upton, or Cameron Maybin?

Postby dis2233 » Tue Aug 15, 2006 5:53 pm

Hello- I'm looking to make 1 or 2 claims in my next FA draft. I'm looking to get 1 OF and 1 SP...unless I'm convinced that passing up 2 of these OF's is a mistake. My current OF is just as strong as my SP. These guys are available. How would you rank these OF's and SP's. Thanks

These OFers could really be put in any order.....
1. Maybin
2. Gonzalez
3. Upton

1. Hirsh
2. Adenhart (I actually like him more than Hirsh but Hirsh is in the show and Adenhart still has a couple years til he gets there)
3. Miller
4. Elbert (needs to find control)

Thanks for the reply. I figured that all three OF's are pretty even...would you rather have 2 of those OF's vs. 1 OF and 1 SP?

I think there is a distiction in your OF's vs. SP's in that the OF's are stronger than the SP's here.

I see it as

Maybin
Upton
Gonzalez

the SP's I feel could be in any oder here. I'm an Elbert owner so I hope his control comes (he will be dominant if it does come around).

I would take Maybin and Upton if they were there!

Do we just assume that every question is a keeper/dynasty question in this forum?

P.S. Give me Maybin and Upton over Gonzalez and any of those pitchers.

That's what I thought and yes that's what I'm asking. Thanks
