Even with the abundance of first basemen that will be available for you on draft day, you would be wise to not let AGon slip by you. Given what we've all seen him do in the worst possible park for left handed hitters, and with ZERO protection, the fact that this talent now plays half his games at Fenway vaults him into Pujols, Miggy, Votto territory. Even with a modest boost to his career splits, you're looking at .300 100 40 120 5. The .BA is what has me the most intruiged. Those years of .275 came as a result of him only notching 2-3 AB out of 6 plate appearances. With line-up protection, it is rational to project that he will hit in the .300+ range. We still need to see the exact form of that protection, namely whether Crawford is added or if they pull the trigger on Justin Upton. However, even as it stands now: Pedrioa, Youk, and Ortiz put to shame the guys he had around him before. Sooooo..... here's my updated top tier 1B rankings. 1. Pujols 2. Miggy 3. Gonzalez 4. Votto 5. Teixeira 6. Howard 7. Fielder
I say this moves Gonzo's ADP to the 7-9 range. Let's here some thoughts... especially you Yankee fans who like to throw dirt on everything I post.
