Need a 1B...who to pickup from FA's? (I'm done with Dunn)

Postby mytechmafia » Tue Jun 07, 2011 6:43 pm

I'm in serious need of a 1B. I have been juggling them since the start of the season since Dunn is not start worthy atm. Although my options are thin on the FA list, there are options.

Who would you pickup out of these? (gonna hold on to Dunn for a little while longer so I can only pick up one. If I drop Dunn I can pick up two.)

Anthony Rizzo
Mitch Moreland
Mark Trumbo
Justin Smoak
Derrek Lee
Brett Wallace
Todd Helton
Daniel Murphy
C: Castro
1B: Goldschmidt
2B: Kipnis
3B: Sandoval
SS: Andrus
OF: Stanton, Ellsbury, Bautista, Eaton, Springer, Polanco
SP: Wacha, Teheran, Liriano, Masterson, Porcello, J.Chavez, Kluber, Lohse, Bauer (Fister/Paxton - DL)
RP: Hunter, C.Allen, Clippard

Well, if you want to roll the dice go with Rizzo, otherwise I would go with Moreland

Keep Dunn on the bench, especially if its a keeper...and go with Moreland for now

I'd go with Mitch Moreland. He's been hitting great-- under the radar.

Given the choice I'd take Trumbo and bench Dunn until he gets it going
