Room for 1 SP Prospect

Postby JASE » Sun May 27, 2007 11:33 am

I have room for 1 more prospect, how would you rank these options? It is a 20 Team League with 40 man rosters so all the top prospects are long gone.

Matt Albers SP Hou
Brett Anderson SP Ari
Rick Vanden Hurk SP Fla
Tommy Hanson SP Atl
Jeremy Hellickson SP TB

Im sure there are others available but these are a few of the best I could find. Im open to other options, players outside the Top 100.

I'll say Anderson though Hellickson could be pretty special if he stays as a starter.

I dont have many top pitching prospects:

Eric Hurley SP Tex
Craig Hansen RP Bos
Will Inman SP Mil
Matt Harrison SP Atl
Colin Balester SP Was

They should all be closer to the majors than Anderson/Hellickson, but are any of them worth dropping so I can pick up both?

I'd rather have both over Harrison & Balester but you might wanna do some research before you commit.

Dump Hansen. He's not going to have any fantasy value as long as he and Papelbon are in Boston.

I just picked up Anderson in my 15 team keeper last week. I have been keeping an eye on him most of the year, and his work has been very good. I decided to go ahead and add him to my minor squad before he started getting lots of attention.

if you are going with Anderson then you have to be very patient, he won't be up for at least 3 more years, probably more. And he's the so called "polished" HS pitcher instead of the high upside ones. So I heard his upside is #3.

If you can wait, take Anderson, if not, take Albers, he's not as bad as he's shown this year and would be solid in a deep league.

Don't dump Matt Harrison, he's doing well in AA and every year some Braves pitching prospect come out of no where and succeed in the majors.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.
