Poll: Hill/Wood/Fontenot Late Round MI Sleepers

Postby deanpapelbon » Sat Mar 14, 2009 5:10 pm

Aaron Hill
Brandon Wood
Mike Fontenot


They all seem like decent sleeper candidates. Which of these late round MI is going to have the better year and why?

Obviously, the player with the most potential is Wood as he has leaps and bounds more power but is still without full-time duty with Aybar at SS, Figgins at 3B, and Vlad at DH. Hill, if recovered fully from his concussion last year, is the safest as he's starting and slated to hit 2nd. Fontenot is now slated to be the full-time 2B and apparently will hit 6th though he lacks the offensive upside of the other two. Right now, I would rank them Hill, Wood, Fontenot with the potential to be Wood, Hill, Fontenot in a perfect world.

Someone maybe to add to this list is 2B eligible Ian Stewart. Stewart and Wood with their MI eligibility could be huge huge steals this year if they can get regular playing time. Huge.

This might be a good poll with the addition of Stewart.

I have to go with Hill. He's the only one who will start vs. lefties and righties. Fontenot is supposed to sit against lefties. Wood doesn't have a place to play. And Stewart also doesn't have a starting position.
Hill has the potential to hit .280 - .290 with 15 - 20 hr's. Not a bad option late in the draft.

Anyone have any fresh thoughts on Aaron Hill?

One way or another he's managed to find his way onto my roster; in the last few days my starting lineup... but the general news on him really downplays him to being an AL only option with no power.
If you found my advice helpful, please help me

15+ HR's is no power?

As long as he can avoid any post-concussion issues I think he can build on his '07 season. I've got him on 2 teams (although both are h2h pts leagues). He's still only a low-end starter in a 12 team league that doesn't use MI though.

I was really big on him heading into last year and then he had the injury. I think at this point he has proven he's over it and I'm glad to own him in 2 of 3 leagues.
