The patience has paid off... Harper/Trout. Now what?

Postby Junse19 » Sat Apr 28, 2012 10:38 am

10 Team - Salary/Keeper League. I have patiently awaited the call up of Bryce Harper and Mike Trout. Now that they've gotten the call, who do I start at OF every day?

I can start 3 OF every day at LF, CF, RF positions. Eligibility of each player is in parentheses. Salary is listed as well.

Josh Hamilton (LF,CF) $21
Jason Heyward (RF) $7
Mike Trout (LF,CF,RF) $4
Bryce Harper (RF) $11
Alex Gordon (LF) $4
Jacoby Ellsbury (CF) -- DL -- $20

I'd start Hamilton, Heyward and Gordon. If Trout looks hot then put him in place of Gordon (or you can also play him at Util if possible). I would wait a few games with Harper though to see what he does - there could be an adjustment period. I have Harper and will also be keeping him on the bench tonight.

I would list them right now...
1. Hamilton (duh)
2. Gordon
3. Heyward
4. Trout
5. Harper
6. Ellsbury (until he gets healthy)

Considering you have to start Heyward or Harper in RF only makes that decision easier, you have to start Heyward at least until Harper shows he can hit major league hitting.
I love Trout, speed kills. I can see you starting him over Heward or Gordon sometime this year.

Thanks for your help with mine!

Im with everyone above start Heyward, Gordon, and Hamilton until Harper can prove something in the bigs. Harper should also have the LF eligibility soon if he doesn't already have it because he will be playing there for the Nats.

Well, in terms of day-to-day starts...I would bench Heyward today. I don't like his matchup. I love Trout's matchup...

LF-Gordon
CF-Hamilton
RF-Trout

for today, but otherwise Heyward should be in RF on a normal day.

I would definitely have hamilton in center obviously, and i would start heward in right until harper shows he can hit in the majors to be honest, and i would probably play matchups for your LF position. I would probably look to trade at least 1 if i were you though

I wouldn't be playing either one of those unless I had no other option. They are unproven and very young. Unless they show you otherwise, there is no reason to be starting them.
