I have one move left in a keeper league and I want to pick somebody up who has the best value for 2010 (I'm out of it this year). Here are the players in the FA pool...
B Lyon $1 - a steal if he closes, F Rod is a FA J Garland $1 - I love all NL pitchers Meche $1 - probably better than Garland, but in the AL M Jacobs $1 - doesn't fit with my team, but $1 is $1... JD Drew $2 - not on my radar earlier this year, now is def possibility C Getz $2 - is he the starting 2B next year? Polanco- $2 - borderline FA every year, but numbers always solid Maybin $5 - I'm sick of him! C Perez $5 - Again if he closes, could be good value Slowey $6 - good ratios, will he bounce back? K Suzuki $6 - maybe top 5-6 catcher, but still, not many worth $5+ B Posey $6 - would have to play most of year to earn this price M Bumgardner- $6 again probably wont play enough K Blanks $6 - a lot like B Butler IMO B Wagner $6 - I'm sure he'll be a closer next year, but for how long C Pena $16 - Someone just dropped him and he's not cheap, but still a good value right...
and if any of these guys gets a Sept call up, would you take them first?
Alvarez Wallace Heyward all are $6 (like every other FA who wasn't drafted this year)
I will help you. Also, do you know of any sites that are projecting 2010 stats yet?
Ok, I've narrowed it down to Lyon, Posey, Slowey, Pena and Maybin (though I don't really need 4 CFers I could drade A Jones or McCutchen in the offseason). Any other input? thanks to all those who helped already.
I would go Posey. Molina's OLD, and his contract is up, so he may be either gone or a backup next year. People say Maybin has 20/20 potential, but he hasn't even looked like a 15/15 or even a 10/10 guy. So far, he's looked like a late-game defensive replacement.
I'd have a realllly hard time passing up heyward, but I would probably end up with Posey mostly because he plays catcher. Slowey would also be hard for me to pass up. If you could drop A Jones and pick up two guys instead then I would do that.
