12 team mixed keeper h2h league with 5x5 scoring (doubles - 2pts, triples - 3pts etc.)
Which of these is best option to pickup and use as my DH going forward.
Adam LaRoche (Pirates) -- no lineup protection but seems to be starting better than usual Travis Snider (TOR) -- top prospect showing promise even though sits against Lefties Dexter Fowler - (col) -- top prospect 5 tool skills but still in platoon Spillborghs -- hitting 2nd for Colorado Marlon Byrd (Texas) -- loaded lineup and starts most games but may platoon with Murphy Randy Winn (SF) -- K Fukudome (cubs) -- struggled in 2008 has he figured out game in '09 ?
Jason Kubel is also vailable and had a huge night hitting for cycle tonight--- he sits versus some lefties but is a much better hitter than Delmon Young and hitting 5th behind Morneau could be huge -- where would Kubel rank among these free agents ?
Since it's a keeper league, I'd grab Snider. Don't take LaRoche until the second half. He always starts slow. Fowler would be my second grab. I think eventually he'll have the leadoff spot for the Rockies. However, he doesn't warrant a pick-up now. Just doesn't play enough yet whereas Snider does.
