Moustakas or Cozart?

Postby teezy33 » Wed Mar 28, 2012 4:03 pm

10 team league with 10 categories for batting (R, H, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, BB, K, SB, AVG).

I have Hanley right now, once he gains 3B eligibility I'll be able to slide him around, so I'm looking to find either the most valuable 3B or most valuable SS off the WW to play alongside him...

I'd love to strike gold on either Mike Moustakas or Zach Cozart, both of whom are relatively unproven, but have the potential to maybe finish inside the top 10 at their respective positions this year. I'll toss out some numbers where I think their ceilings might be, and the faithful cafe community can debate both my numbers and who will be more likely to hit those numbers by season's end.

Moustakas out of the 5 hole: 70 R, 35 2B, 2 3B, 22 HR, 80 RBI, 40 BB, 100 K's, 5 SB .275 AVG
Cozart out of the 2 hole: 80 R, 30 2B, 4 3B, 15 HR, 60 RBI, 35 BB, 100 K's, 15 SB, .275 AVG

I feel like Cozart would be the better value given the power he gives you as a SS and the fact that it's a thinner position with Miggy and Hanley joining the 3B pool. Who do you like more?

I actually like Moustakas better. May be contrary to popular opinion.

moustakas by far to me. he will be an elite hitter once he gets going and to have hosmer, cain, myers batting around you for the next couple of years could help you out.

cozart will have less pressure on him then moustakas but i still like moustakas over cozart by far

Hmm this is a tough one. I think I'd have to go moustakas as well. I feel he'll prob be mashing come the all-star break. Go with your gut on this as both have some solid potential.

I prefer Hanley at SS.
Moustakis probably has a better year then Cozart.

For sheer production I'll take Moustakis there. ;-D

Moustakas has more power and should flashes of it last September. I would go after him.
