Fringe Guys You Are Watching In Spring Training

Postby PlayingWithFire » Sat Mar 03, 2007 9:07 pm

What are the top 5 fringe guys you are watching in ST? By fringe I mean the Sean Burroughs type, not sleepers but good mlb players like Corey Hart. They don't need to make an impact this year, but some knowledge of those guys would be nice.

1. Termel Sledge-potential leadoff man?
2. Ruben Gotay-a guy with good pop for 2B and a good defender. Toolsy guy.
3. Jason Kubel-toolsy OF, battled injuries.
4. Rick Ankiel-I just want a feel good story.
5. Al Reyes-potential hold guy if you are in a league. And most don't notice him. The key is stay healthy.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

I am not really sure what you are looking for. I will be watching:

Josh Hamilton, former first overall pick, former crack head, current Cincinnati Red.

Wainwright - It'll be interesting to know what his role will be this season and how he will perform in it.

Prior/Wood - Same thing every year. I've taken a flyer on Prior late so I have a bit of vested interest in him.

Braun - The buzz is starting to get to me.

Josh Hamilton - He's a natural. Crushing the ball so far. Given a second chance...

I was kind of curious if Adam Lind might be able to swing some sort of PT in Toronto. He had a nice cup of coffee last year but I think that Frank Thomas will likely put the squeeze on any DH AB unless he blows a gasket. :-?

I'm watching Adam Lind, and hoping for a good spring out of him, so the Blue Jays change their mind and actually find him a roster spot to start the season. He's too good a hitter not to start on the team this year, IMO.

I am looking at the lower level of second basemen, guys like O. Hudson, L. Castillo and M. Giles... Some guys I can wait for that will give me some SB...
Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

A few things I am looking for:

- Angels 1B (Morales vs Kotchman) situation.

- Daniel Cabrera's K:BB.

- Andy LaRoche vs Wilson Betemit

- Kevin Gregg's performances

- HR power from Gomes and Teahen (shoulder surgeries)

- Improved plate discepline from Matt Kemp

Fantasy-wise

1. Red Sox Closer Piniero...
2. Armando Benitez (if he's traded a lot of things could shift)
3. Mark Prior
4. Bill Bray
5. Braves 2B Johnson/Aybar/Escobar

Personally

1. Josh Hamilton
2. Jon Lester
3. Zack Greinke
4. Joel Guzman
5. Scott Hairston
