Pickup Eric Young Jr?

Postby smurfman111 » Wed Aug 26, 2009 4:12 pm

What do you guys think? Is Eric Young worth picking up in my keeper league? Will he be a force in 2010? I am in a 12 team 30 man roster mixed league.

unless you keep almost your entire roster there really isn't any point to pickup young. once gonzalez comes back from his hand injury, young will be splitting time in the OF with spilborghs and seth smith so young will not see the field as a starter that much, mostly as a late-game pinch runner. also he will only play in the OF in colorado since clint barmes has 2b tied up which means he will only be OF elig. next year, losing 2b. if you ask me i think young is unbelievably overrated this season. everyone is jumping on him because of how many SB he has in the minors this year but he won't get anywhere close to that number in the bigs because the catchers are obviously better and he is blocked as far as playing time. unless he goes on a sb tear, kind of like julio borbon, leave him as a free agent.
