Late power. Kendrys or Dunn?

Postby Carnac » Sun Mar 25, 2012 10:00 am

Drafting today. Have my eye on these guys for late power.

Who do you like? And what round do you see them drafted?

I'd take the chacne on Kendrys. As for what round, that would depend on how many teams are in your league?

That's tough. I'd probably go with Morales, because when he's healthy that boy can hit. There was a span of time back in 2010 when he looked like the next big power-hitting 1B. He's just had a bit of bad luck with injuries.

Dunn on the other hand kind of forgot how to hit.

Dunn will be the comeback player of the year and hit 30 HR's.

Kendry may hit 30, will hit 20-25 and do it with a better BA than Dunn.

So I'd go Kendrys if you can, if not Dunn isn't a bad conselation late in a draft.

Morales is probably going a round or two ahead of Dunn so I would look to grab Morales and if you miss out then take Dunn. If you are looking strictly for power then Dunn is the guy but he will hurt you in other categories that Morales won't.

In our draft, Morales went for $15, while Dunn went for $2. This was before Morales played a game this week.

In my opinion, I think they're a toss up. Dunn should be back and hit 35+ HR, low BA, high OBP. Morales's PA is going to be somewhat restricted with Pujols on 1B and Trumbo sharing time on DH (I'm not sold on Trumbo playing 3rd for a championship-caliber club). So Morales may not even reach 25HR, high BA, and also high OBP. RBI and runs for both will depend on how many games they played. On this matter, again, Dunn > Morales.

A Dunn all the way. Think he will be great this year. I would regret not picking him up late cheap. Could grab a Gamel, Smoak, or Goldschmidt as a late round backup. I think kendrys will spend a lot of time on DL.
