Are these guys

Tulowitzki, Lind, and Kouzmanoff

Worth picking up?

All three of the guys above are the guys I'm trying to get off waivers, do I pick all 3 up, or leave my team like it is? And I was wanting to know who I should drop for them. Here is my team, it is an 8 player keeper.

The one I really only like from the list is Tulowitzki. I don't think Lind will actually make an impact and if he does I think he'll be an average OF at best. Kousmanoff is 25 years old and could be decent but, like I've said isn't an elite prospect. Tulo is the only elite prospect out of the 3.

Drew is a better bet than Tulowitzki to perform from here on out, so you couldn't use him.

Kouzmanoff (Travis Hafner light?) has crushed everywhere he has been this season. He's probably a better utility in your league than Chris Young.

Tulowitzki has the hype. Kouzmanoff will help you win.

I'm out of the playoffs this year. So I need to know which one would help more in the future... Or is that what you meant?

Ok, if you're going for 2007 and beyond, Tulo is your guy. Once he or Drew begin to blossom, you will have some nice trade bait.

P.S. I did some more research and discovered that Tulowitzki's sports idol is Derek Jeter. I don't think it's out of the question that some day he could be Jeter-good, too.

I think when that happens the power numbers could really explode in a few years. I personally think he'll fill out to a simlar body type as AROD, not prediciting those same offensive numbers obviously, but 6'3 225lbs sounds about right in his prime.

Just for a comparison:

Wood 6'3" 185 @ age 21

Drew 6'1 185 @ age 23


I think Tuly's size and building frame will dictate higher power numbers than Jeter. He's already bigger and 11 years younger. Though his speed contributions won't be as great but I think he has some 30+ HR seasons in his future.

Jeter 6'3 195 @ age 32

Okay, now let me ask you this question... Think I should keep him? 8 Players...

Hummm, I doubt it, but let's break it down.

You have to keep: Miguel Cabera, Vernon Wells, and Hideki Matsui...dang you have a lot of young talent. Ok, these are your only no-doubt keppers who aren't rookies.

I'd keep: Because they should all be going to be big contributors in 2007, I like Stephen Drew (over Tulowitzki), Delmon Young, Jeremy Hermida, and Justin Verlander.

Shoot, that gives you five OF...is that too many?

You need to make some trades. You have so much great keeper talent. No only are your young players good, but they're exciting, too.

So, unless you make some major trades, or for whatever reason you like Tulo a lot more than Drew, I don't see room on your roster for Troy Tulowitzki.
