cozart, furcal or escobar. (WHIR)

Postby osbtensor » Sun Apr 08, 2012 9:18 pm

I have aybar as my primary SS and escobar as a backup. Cozart is on the wire along with furcal. I am thinking dropping escobar and picking up cozart could payoff in the long run. escobar hits for avg and has a powerful lineup around him to drive him in, but cozart will hit with some power and [hopefully] a decent avg while also being in a good lineup and hitting at the top of the order.

have: aybar, escobar

ww: cozart, furcal

any thoughts?

H,m, I might go cozart over Escobar but I may be in the minority. Go cozart over Aybar if You are stacked in sb elsewhere.

Which Escobar?

Yunel I'd drop
Alcides I'd keep

Don't just pick up Furcal because he's there. He will still be there in a few weeks.

furcal is an injury risk. not sure about cozart's injury risk. but the kid is young (26?) and it's fun to root for the up and comers of the league and upside in general. i also don't know which escobar you want to drop, but who cares. don't they both suck? i guess almost all shortstops are lousy. what's the chance cozart will be worse than either of those two and, if he is worse, how much worse could he be? i can't imagine it's too hard to top the escobars.

Cozaet is the long term player I like, but Furcal seems to be hot and is batting leadoff. I may ride him for a few weeks.

I think I might go with Furcal. IF he stays healthy he could put up some good reliable numbers atop that lineup. Cozart could be a pretty good gamble too though so it might be a tossup here.

I'd go for Cozart over Escobar. Like others have said Furcall will get injured and Cozart might be gone by then. He's no slouch either the kids got potential.
