Which of these FAs will strengthen my team most? WHIR

Postby Bwanna » Sun Apr 29, 2007 12:44 pm

Can someone give me their gut feel for any current weakness in my roster? I feel very good about my pitching staff, in spite of not having a premier closer. I'd really like to add some more power, and the guys I'm looking at are...

Adam Lind (OF)
Luis Gonzalez (OF)
Dmitri Young (1B)
Chris B. Young (OF)
Shane Victorino (OF)
Ryan Freel (2B,3B,OF)


And are any of the above worth adding over Lofton or Theriot or anyone else? I'm in the top 3 in steals currently, and could probably stand to replace Lofton or Theriot with more power. Thoughts?

I would look at Chris Young as a pickup over Theriot. Young will end up with a 20/20 season, and may have as many as 25/25, while I think Theriot will fall off in the coming months.

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated

I'd say go for Freel over Lofton. Young is unproven, and Freel is a known commodity.
I never smile if I can help it.... Showing one's teeth is a submission signal in primates. When someone smiles at me, all I see is a chimpanzee begging for its life.
