Pick one from the Jays

Postby stlcards02 » Thu Feb 16, 2012 4:04 pm

Picking solely from the Blue Jays, who would you go with for the 4th slot. It's a 20-team points league, scoring is below. Assuming all the good teams are taken with their top 4 players taken as well.

I have to decide on either Lind(848 pts), Rasmus(808 pts), or Morrow(865 pts)

With already having Bautista, Larie, and Romero, I'm having trouble deciding which to keep. It's a standard baseball lineup with 3OF and 1Util, 5 Sp and 3 RP with 9 max start per week. Morrow is projected to score more but there seems to be more pitching available then good bats, though Lind and Rasmus aren't at the top of their position either. Thoughts?

Batting-
Singles (2)
Doubles (4)
Triples (6)
Home Runs (8)
Walks (2)
RBI (2)
Runs Scored (1)
Stolen Bases (1)

Pitching-
Innings Pitched (3)
Wins (5)
Losses (-3)
Saves (5)
Earned Runs (-3)
Strikeouts (1)
Hits Allowed (-1)
Walks Issued (-1)

Not sure how the points system would change my values, but I rank them as Morrow>Lind>Rasmus.

I listed their projected pts in (), and maybe I should also note that we keep 10 from here on out. I'm not particularly high on Morrow, but I think he would hold the most value regardless now that I think about it. Lind isn't a sexy player, and Rasmus who knows.

Of the 3 I think you've gotta go with Morrow.

Lind-Morrow-Rasmus. I'd call Morrow/Lind a coin flip really. Both guys have mechanics to fix and menmtal blocks to overcome, and both guys could be really good if they manage it. All things being equal I'll take the corner guy with 30HR power, which is why I have Lind ranked before Morrow. I also realize that I like Lind more than a lot of guys. :-b

I would probably take Morrow but I could see Lind here as well. Morrow is more likely to score you more points though.

Morrow is the way to go.
