Spilborghs

Has Spilgorghs locked up the starting gig in CF yet? I think he puts up pretty decent counting stats with a nice average for a relatively untalked about guy.

Rotoworld blurb
The Denver Post reports that Carlos Gonzalez and Dexter Fowler are both likely to begin the season at Triple-A.
Colorado has plenty of other outfield and bench options to sort through without rushing Gonzalez and Fowler, both of whom could clearly use some additional seasoning in the minors.


I think you'll see spilborghs in center everyday since I'm not sure whom else would be competing against him if CarGo and Fowler is in AAA as speculated.

Spilborghs has the job. '08 he hit .313, 6 HR, 38 R, 36 RBI, 7 SB, 38 BB, 41 K in 230 AB. I'll take that all day for a late round flier/sleeper pick. Most guys take the hype players who K a lot. If your league penalizes K's this makes him even better. To boot, he's hitting .323, 2 HR, 5 R, 10 RBI, 2 SB, 5 BB, 4 K in 31 AB this spring. Colorado's ballpark and a decent lineup. I'm definitely not sleeping on him and you shouldn't either.

I could see this guy being Mclouth lite this season. One of my favourite late round OF sleepers after Dukes
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Love love love me the Spilborgs. I went into my keeper draft without any OF's and was able to snag Milledge, Spilborghs, and Cruz as my 3 OF and I'm happy cuz all of them will go 15-15!

Sorry but I'd be very worried if those were my top 3 OF...

Why? I also have Raul Ibanez as a non-sexy dependable OF to round my 4 OF spots. My 5 keepers going into the draft were Hanley, Utley, Teixeira, Mauer, and Peavy.

I love all their potential, but it's very dangerous to go into the year with 3 unproven breakout candidates. Yes if they all break out you will be atop the standings, but if they don't improve as much as you expect you'll be near the bottom...I always try to have at most 2 breakout guys in my entire starting lineup, let alone 3 in my OF.
