Drop Cain for Cozart?

Postby KaPluie » Mon Apr 09, 2012 2:55 pm

I wouldn't mind having a little backup for Jeter, but I still think Cain could have a very productive year. JD Martinez is also available.

I'd probably drop Cain and Young both, but not for backup bats, for high-upside SP.

I would drop cain and keep young. Cain should have a better year, but I am also a believer in Young. SS is so thin you never know.

I dont think I would make the move. You can always plug in Cain and get production out of him in the OF. If Derek Jeter stays healthy (and I know this is a kinda big if) you won't really have much use for Cozart other then him being trade bait. I like Cain's upside just as much, if not more then Cozart's. So if I was you I would just stay put.

I also like Delmon Young, I wouldn't drop him for Cozart either.

I gotta say I wasn't buying the hype before the season started but Cozart is off to a scorching start and it doesn't hurt that he is batting second in the reds lineup. If you don't have a spot for him in your lineup i would suggest keeping a close eye on him. A few more days of what he has been doing and he will be universally owned at a position that isn't very deep. It is not unreasonable that he could be much better than Jeter this year.(I think jeter is a turd that should be about as owned as cozart)

;-D Keep Young as he will likely be the best OF of the three (Young, Cain, JD).
