Well I had some fun with this Buy or Sell Around The Horn rip off yesterday so let's go ahead and do it once again...Around Daaa Hooorrnnn....yeah that was bad....
1st Topic, Randy Winn
On the Devil Rays last year but was traded for a manager to go to a Seattle team which will give him more opportunities to hit the ball and steal some bases. But a lot of people are saying 1 hit wonder so here's the question...
Buy or Sell Randy Winn as a Top 20 OF in a Keeper League
Topic Number 2, Aubrey Huff
Huff is still in Tampa but he probably wishes that he went up to Seattle with Winn. He was still able to post some very good numbers even though he's in Tampa. Huff hit 23 HRs and drove in 59, which might of been all of the Devil Rays base runners last year, along with hitting a .313 average. He played 14 games at 3rd last year, qualifing him in some leagues as a 1st and 3rd basemen. So...
Buy or Sell Aubrey Huff a POTENTIAL Albert Pujols-like fantasy player within the next 3 years
Last topic, Angles Outfielder Garrett Andeson
With the Angles winning the World Series last year, Anderson was noticed but it seems forgotten again. 92 HRs and 363 RBI his last 3 seasons for an Anaheim team who has pitchers in their division such as Freddy Garcia, Barry Zito, Mark Mudler, Joel Pinero, and Tim Hudson that Anderson has to regularly square off against. So our last one...
Buy or Sell Garrett Anderson as the MOST underrated outfielder in not only the major leagues, but also fantasy baseball
Alright, go ahead and give your answers and a little reasoning if you could. Also, consider these questions when dealing with a standard 5X5 league. Thanks guys..hopefully we can have fun with this...if not I'll just give it up lol.
Despite all my rage
I am still just a rat in a cage
Randy Winn- he is not top 20, but he is borderline top 25. i have him the number 26 outfielder. i think he will score more runs and steal more bases, but his power numbers will go down hitting at safeco.
Aubrey Huff- He is not Albert Pujols. i think he could be a nice player this year, but i dont think he will come close to pujols stats. i see huff at 25 HR, 92 RBI with around a .305 average hitting for the lowly D-Rays.
Garrett Anderson - I dont think he is underrated anymore. in fact, so many people jumped on the bandwagon over the offseason, that he might be a bit OVERRATED heading into the spring drafts. his numbers should be right around the same as last year.
By the way, I think Around the Horn is the worst show on tv.
I've got Winn rated as my 35th outfielder. I think his numbers won't be quite as good, moving from leadoff to the 2 hole. More sacrifices, less steals, etc.
I would think Huff will post numbers close to what you project. I think he has the potential do better/worse depending on the development of some of his younger teamates. IE - more guys in scoring position to drive in, scoring more runs, seeing better pitches, etc. Multiple pos elegibility helps.
I agree with tlef that Anderson is probably not underrated anymore. I've got him around #14 on my list. Depends on the other owners in your league.
I am not a Randy Winn fan. I have him ranked @ 44th outfielder. So, I would not keep him. He flat out can't hit on grass - his BA is like .230 or worse. So, definitely NOT a top 20 keeper - I have Garrett Anderson as # 20 OF.
Aubrey Huff only plays like Albert Pujols on Triple Play 2003. No way is he the same player - even in the future. He could be a decnt late round alternative - but that's probably it.
I think that Garrett Anderson is a rare breed - solid and quiet. That being said - I have him ranked as #20 OF - he's good, not great and frankly, the most underrated OF is Magglio Ordonez. He's a bonafide early 2nd round stud! Next would be Brian Giles...
