Help with FA Pickup WHIR 100%

Postby ATLbraves » Fri Aug 19, 2011 1:13 am

Who should i pickup off the FA? Stubbs is in a funk and I need someone to feel in for him until Beltre comes back.

Jeff Francoeur
Josh Willingham
Seth Smith
Michael Brantley
Carlos Pena
Mitch Moreland
Lucas Duda
Casey Kotchman
Alfonso Soriano
Kyle Blanks
Delmon Young
Josh Reddick
Jose Tabata


I'm leaning towards Duda, Francoeur, or Young since Moreland got injured. And Young was just traded to the Tigers. What do y'all think though?

i like Seth Smith the most out of all of em, but Lucas Duda has been putting up nice numbers recently, and is dual position elig. Id probably lean towards one of those two

I'm a sucker for upside guys who bat in the middle of the lineup - Duda or Blanks.

Yeah I'd say Duda or Blanks as well.

Does no one think Delmon Young would be a good add? He has been hitting very well since going to the Tigers and is batting 3rd in front of Miguel Cabrera.

I'm having a hard time deciding between Duda, Blanks or Young.


And I forgot to include Jose Tabata on the list, if that makes a difference. He did hit a homer in his second game back.

Of Duda, Blanks and Young I'd probably go with Young, if only because of the line-up he'll have around him going forward. It should boost his production a bit from here on out. Never been a huge fan of Duda, but he's been fairly consistent, and Blanks has decent potential but is a big wild card.

I recently dropped Young due to guys coming off the DL, but it was tough because I love that he is batting in front of Cabrera. If you league honors doubles, he is great for that. He won't walk much or homer much, and rbis are sporadic. But he'll score runs in front of those guys. I like Duda as a more well-rounded bat, but he has a lousy supporting cast. I'd probly take either over Blanks, who i suspect could cool off.

help me out on this Barney question?

I think I take a shot with Young for the reasons said above. But don't expect much in hrs.
Thanks for your help with mine.

Thanks for helping with mine. As for yours, I would go with Young. I think the move to Detroit will help immensely and he will do much better with a more rounded lineup.
