Smoak or Moreland? WHIR

Postby ArgyleSox » Sun Jun 05, 2011 5:50 pm

Should I start Smoak - (3 @ W Sox, 4 @ Tigers), or Moreland - (3 vs. Tigers, 4 @ Twins) for the week?

Smoak had 4 HRs this week, but only 5 hits - HRs included. He's very streaky with the long ball, so next week could be a slump.

Moreland hit his second HR of the week today, and is hitting the ball well. He's now playing every game, and the Texas roster is pretty loaded now that Cruz and Hamilton are back.

Agree with above. Moreland hits in a better lineup, and hits for better avg. I was reading an article about smoak the other day... one serious warning sign is that his ground ball rate is aproaching 50%. Thats not a good sign for a power hitter.... I had him but dropped him in most leagues.
