Who to pick up. WHIR

Postby codyscherer » Tue Mar 27, 2012 11:28 pm

I now have mayberry. I am wondering if heisey, chris davis, kubel, pena, belt, or martinez would be a better option. I really cant take another huge BA risk so probably puts pena out of the equation. But of the rest, who is the best and start off the year playing everyday.

I like Kubel in his new park. target Field did him no favors last year and he should have a bit of a better yr than the past 2.

I'd stick with Mayberry. He should be locked into playing time with Howard out and should produce well in the power department and chip in a few steals.

I'd take a shot on Heisy. Pujols was the only guy to have a better HR/AB ratio last year.

...but with Dusty Baker is Heisey guaranteed to get ABs? In an ideal world, he would, but you never know.

I'd say either stick with Mayberry or grab Kubel.

I personally like Mayberry but if you need to make the move, I would push for Kubel easily out of that group, Big Season for him.

Duda was just dropped, would he be a better option than any of these guys. I was thinking yes and hopefully the fences getting moved in at citi field will help.
