Who would you rather own?

Postby KaPluie » Thu Apr 05, 2012 12:21 pm

Let's play who would you rather own...

J.D. Martinez
Morales
Torii Hunter

And, who is more likely to bat behind Pujols, Hunter or Morales?

this ones tough!

i really like JD this year. could be a major sleeper
i also really like kendry! the guy have 30+ hr power

i think hunter is the odd man out, even though i love the guy i would chose one of the younger guys over the aging star

OK, here is my team:

Team:
H2H, 12-team
Scoring = Standard, except we have Slugging% and OBP instead of average (separate categories, not OPS)

C: J. P. Arencibia
1B: Joey Votto
2B: Brandon Phillips
3B: Brett Lawrie
SS: Derek Jeter
OF: Hunter Pence
OF: Nick Markakis
OF: Delmon Young
Utility: Mark Teixeira
Bench: Austin Jackson
Bench: J.D. Martínez
Bench: Lorenzo Cain
Bench: Justin Morneau

SP: Mat Latos
SP: Yu Darvish
RP: Heath Bell
RP: Jose Valverde
P: Matt Garza
P: Jordan Zimmerman
P: Adam Wainwright
Bench: Ubaldo Jimenez

The situation is that Torii Hunter is actually a FA in my 12-team league, but I'm enticed by the idea of him batting near Pujols, and he has proven/consistent 25 HR power, and could be a 85/25/85/10 type of guy this year. I'm thinking of replacing JD Martinez with Hunter. As for Morales, I'm just curious how Hunter and Morales compare. I think Morales is going to bat behind Pujols most of the time, with Hunter behind him. Hunter could have plenty of RBI opportunities this year with those two in front of him.

I would rather cut Jackson or Morneau although I am not sure Hunter will be much more productive.
