Damn. I'm in a league with a very limited bench, where Motte is sitting right now. I can't even use Motte if he breaks out, I'd have to trade him. But in our points league, any closer that has a job and can strike out around a batter per inning or better, is worth a ton, and I'd have him locked up super cheap in my keeper - where I'd be able to trade him, or trade one of my stud RPs to make room for him.

Should I just drop a potential stud like Motte for Fowler? I have no use for Fowler right now, as Hawpe is my DH (and worst OF). I suppose I could trade an OF if Fowler proves to be for real. Also, because it is a points league, and bench spots really need to go to SPs, if Fowler doesn't play 150 games or so, I'll be in rough shape. Additionally OF is shallower in our league relative to most leagues, and I already have some stud keeper OFers.

Any ideas?

Im in a 10 team H2H league and I was considering dropping Damon and picking up Fowler? Anyone else think Im crazy?

Its kind of a toss up between Spilborghs, Fowler, Murphy, Headly, Cust or Morgan?????????

Yeah, Damon is Fowler's upside this year, plus some HR, runs, and consistent playing time. Fowler should definitely be owned in deep/5 OF leagues, and dynasty/large keeper leagues, but in standard-ish leagues he's not a must-own until he gets full PT. If he's better than your worst player, by all means pick him up, but in shallow leagues there may be someone better.

last season at AA in 108 games he had 9 HR. in 2007 at A+ in 65 games he had 2 HR. in 2006 at A in 99 games he had 8 HR. so whats his ceiling with Colorado? maybe 15? im not sure i would predict breakout this season, but he looks to be good for the future.
eventually down the road, comparible to Carl Crawford?


i don't think its a bad comparison, but fowler already has much better plate discipline that crawford had/will have.

Fowler is pretty sweet but I don't expect the rockies to use him correctly.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

If I were to drop one of those it would be Morgan.

Like him in deep leagues as a spot starter. Has a great OBP, hits for average, and speed to rack up the runs.

I'd be hesitant to call him Fred Lewis plus because of his SB success in the minors. 20 stolen bases with 8 CS in AA, 20 SBs with 11 CS the year before that.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
