Viciedo or Dominguez?

Postby justinA » Thu Feb 17, 2011 10:58 pm

I've narrowed it down to Viciedo or Dominguez as my final rookie keeper. I am pretty sure Viciedo is still considered a rookie because a lot of his service time last year was in September.

What do you guys think? Viciedo is atrocious in the field and is completely locked out at first base now. I've heard talk of him playing corner outfield but I have no idea how that will work out. Dominguez looks like he will have the job going into Spring Training but I have a bad feeling about him being thrust into that position so abruptly. He isn't Miggy Cabs obviously but the idea of ABs right away intrigues me.

14 team mixed roto, 15 hitters/10 pitchers, auction style $300. Thanks!

I would probably go Dominguez because when he is ready they will find a spot for him. I don't think he is going to be much of a hitter though, most of what I have heard is that he is a good defender but not a big time hitter.

I'd go with Dominguez too. No chance of him being moved off 3B and Keith Law said something along the lines of Ryan Zimmerman's ML development at the plate gives hope for Dominguez' bat. Not saying he will be a .300 30 100 guy like Zimm, but the Mike Lowell comps still look attractive @ 3B.
