Carlos Gonzalez

He finally got called up yesterday and hit 2 doubles. I think this guy will be the future of A's offense.

Well yeah, this kid is the A's top prospect after the Haren trade. I only wish he played another position, it seems like this year's talent in OF is outweighing the talent in the IF. It seems like all my teams have undroppable OF's but dropping IF's. Disappointing situations, but I have a good feeling about this kid and he doesn't have as much hype on him as Bruce or Kershaw so adding him shouldn't be as big a problem is it was for them two.

Depends, how deep is your league and what does your OF look like?

some people say that Carlos Gonzalez is not really a fantasy helper to any team and they suggest that he is only an AL only prospect. Also would you rather have David Price over Gonzalez? Will Gonzo hit you 35 plus home runs? I don't think so. I think he is a Chase Headley clone.

Here is what another top site says about Gonzo (RW'd)
In his major league debut, Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with two doubles and an RBI but the A's lost to the Rangers.
It's tough to carry a team from the eighth spot in the lineup, but Gonzalez tried tonight. None of the other A's managed to put a run on the board. He doesn't have great fantasy value, but is worth a pickup in AL-only leagues.

How about a #5 waiver for Carlos Gonzalez in a keeper league where David Price is already reserved?

Question is, where is his ceiling? For example, would he be a better add than Cody Ross right now?

I'm wondering about his ceiling as well. As far as comparing him to Cody Ross, IMO Gonzalez is the better pick. Ross looks a lot better than he really is, he only had 14 hits in May, 10 of them just happened to be HR's. That kind of power surge can't continue for long.
