Belt vs. Adam Laroche?? WHIR

Postby somervillesoxfan » Thu Mar 31, 2011 7:18 pm

Who deserves the final roster spot on my roster?? Brandon Belt or Adam Laroche? What kind of stats will these guys put up?

Runs (R), Doubles (2B), Triples (3B), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Walks (BB), Batting Average (AVG), On-base + Slugging Percentage (OPS), Net Stolen Bases (NSB)

Leave a link and ill return the favor.

I take the gamble on Belt here. LaRoche is playing with a tear in his shoulder and could be forced to the bench or DL at any point should it be aggravated. Belt seems to have a ton of upside, and I like those kinds of picks this early.

I'd also take the chance on Belt. You already know what you will get with Larouche...reliable, underwhelming production. Take a chance on the upside.

take the chance on Belt. If you get lucky could pay off big for you......plus he's the "hot" name right now, if he starts off on fire TRADE him!

I would definitely go with Belt here. Especially since they were confident enough to let him start the season at 1B. He looks like a top notch hitter and possibly a future early rounds pick at 1B. One of the better dynasty 1B prospects to own in my opinion. Laroche will never be more than he is. He's a nice player but there are a ton of guys out there (ok maybe not a ton) at 1B that do close to or the same as what he does. Belt can/should be a lot better and could do it as early as this year.

considering its a final roster spot I would roll the dice on Belt, if you needed consistent production would have probably gone Laroche. Belts speed at 1B is intriguing and a little bit of power.

Another vote for Belt. He's worth it for the upside. I have him on my bench in every league i'm in.

Im gonna be that guy that goes against every body else... I would take laroche cause you know what your getting here. Belt is a defensive player and I'm not sure he's on their team to mash for power or drive in runs.

help on mine please:
