Any of these FAs a better option than Hosmer? WHIR

Postby juliown1028 » Fri May 27, 2011 4:11 pm

So I've been wondering if there are any options that would produce more than Hosmer this season on my FAs. Its not a keeper so its not like I want Hosmer on my team for his keeper value. Here are a few FAs that are sitting around I've been eyeing:

Todd Helton
Allen Craig
Chris Coghlan
Raul Ibanez
Brennan Boesch
Chipper Jones
Carlos Pena
Justin Turner

12 Team H2H 5x5
C: V. Martinez (C,1B)
1B: L. Berkman (1B,OF)
2B: I. Kinsler (2B)
SS: J. Peralta (3B,SS)
3B: M. Young (1B,2B,3B)
OF: M. Kemp (OF)
OF: H. Pence (OF)
OF: A. Soriano (OF)
Util: C. Young (OF)
Util: C. Crawford (OF)
BN: E. Hosmer (1B)

I like Pena to get better as the weather gets warmer.

Hosmer is still very much a prospect... I think than Pena has more upside this year.

Pena's upside is where its at . What you see is what you get. Difference of opinions. Let him drag your batting average down.I'll take my chances with Hosmer.

I like Chipper better than Pena, but I'd watch Hosmer for a few more weeks and see what happens. I assume roto league, so unless you've punted BA, stay away from Pena.

No love for Coghlan? I'd keep an eye on him too.
