Center Field Dumpster Diving - Looking for a gem?

Postby FantasySportsMaven » Wed Apr 11, 2012 2:12 pm

My current CF is Coco Crispy and so far he has given me a grand total of 3 points. Most of my other starters are over 15 pts so far with some over 25pts.

I have tried trading him but no one seems to have a CF which they want to trade for this nasty old bowl of Crisp.

Right now, on FA are these guys. Are any of them better than Crisp for this year and beyond(since this is a Dynasty League) to use as my everyday CF starter?
If so, who would be your top 2 in order?
Jordan Schafer, Carlos Gomez, Shane Robinson, Justin Maxwell, Marlon Byrd, Ben Revere.

Give Schafer a shot. I'm upset that I wasn't able to nab him in my Dynasty as I decided to wait for space on my roster to open up with guys going to the DL (Lowrie, Utley). He's got some tools but more importantly, Jordan has real opportunity. If Revere could be guaranteed full playing time, he'd be intriguing as well.

Like you said dumpster diving..

Im not in love with Gomez.. he isnt an every day player even though he is off to a hot start.
Robinson is to unproven and Maxwell just got called up and who knows how much he is going to play.
M. Byrd is big time struggling at the plate and the Cubs have Bennet Jackson behind him the young kid that might steal some at bats.
Revere is such a liability on defense that he is a question mark every day in the Twins line up... he will give you steals and hits for a solid average but will give you no power at all.

With that said.. I say Schafer and Revere in that order. As crazy as it is to say.. I think that Coco is your best option right now. All of those others guys are just so unproven and not every day players.

I would stick with Crisp.

Thanks to everyone for the great advice!

I guess I'll stand pat for now.
I do have Cespedes who gets Flea elibibility at CF after Tomorrow's game, so I can put Crisp on the bench and start someone at LF like Raburn(egad, he sucks so far this year too) or pick up some dumpster LF'der. :)
Thanks again!

pick up schafer. had 3 SB last night, could get a lot of them this year. also he was a big piece of the bourn trade as he was a high prospect. some players just cant play in ATL.

Completely agree with this. If Revere could get every day at bats then he would be a great option for you.

I am in a similar situation and I just cut Crisp.. I am thinking about giving Schaefer a shot and keeping an eye on Crisp on the WW.

Like you said, he hasn't done anything this year, but he is the type of player that gets hot. I doubt anyone in my league is going to waste a roster spot on him while he isn't doing anything, so I guess it depends on the depth of your league.. Every year I seem to pick this guy up and drop him multiple times.. I'm going to take a risk and go with someone else, good luck!
