who would you grab???
That is the controversy that takes shape each season as we always try to find the next big thing. Right now Carlos Gonzales is on waivers and will probably be picked up by a ton of players. I however am not really too exited about him. He no longer steals bases and his pop is about average. Do you agree or disagree?
In our league Bruce is taken, Rasmus is taken, Kershaw is gone, even Chase Headley is owned (by me) and so the player who I feel is the next best bet to be called up this year is David Price. Baseball America ranked him as the 10 best prospect out there.
The guy has a great, great arm. However, will he even be called up this year? The Ray's pitching staff seems to be doing fine without him.
How about Fowler? How about Matt Wieters? Andrew McCuthen will steal you bases but, don't you want a bat that can both steal and rake? Don't you want pitchers that can get a high K rate as well as own a low era?
So who is your choice if you had the 1st waiver pick in your keeper league?
