Mike Moustakas? Worth The Hype???

Postby etl1692 » Thu Jun 23, 2011 11:37 pm

So I picked up Mike Moustakas, maybe I was expecting way too much? As of now he is not impressing me. I know its is still early and it may be fair to say I should give him a little more time. The 3B spot is very shallow and I was hoping he was the man to fill the spot. These 3B are available on Waivers. Any of these guys worth grabbing over Moustakas? or give it some more time? (I realize alot of responses are gonna say give it more time, but why should I? What qualities/skills is he showing that he is worth holding on to?

Quit reading this post and pick up Reynolds, i'll wait...

I bought into the Moustakas hype and quickly realized i needed to wait until next year. Unless this is a keeper league make the move for reynolds.

If it's not a keeper, I'd go with Reynolds over Moose if you can handle the BA drain

I'm a Moose fan and saw him plenty in the minors. Still Reynolds is the safe play for you in a non keeper. You know what you are getting with reynolds and he's really heating up. Can you cut any other deadwood instead of Moose? He's getting real good looks right now. His timing looks good too. Hitting some at-em rockets which skew his stats given the few AB he has. Not sure why you'd retain Lohse or Bartlett over Moose. Neither has upside.

Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!
