Cuddyer and Overbay

Postby Freebird27 » Sat Apr 03, 2004 1:44 am

In a 14 team 29 player roster lifetime keeper..normal 5X5. Have lots of holes to fill with so many players drafted. Would either of the two in the subject line be worth a roster spot...also considering it is a lifetime keeper

just to strengthen that argument, I find Overbay a bit Overrated(no pun intended). His minor league numbers are quite skewed in that he played in parking lots in the minor leagues in the Az Diamondback organization.

Lancaster, Tuscon, and Texas El-Paso are all notoriously good hitters parks. Overbay didn't impress me all that much when he came up and the Dbacks made a good move by giving him up for sexson. The minor league parks are not my opinion but the rest is all my thoughts. Take it as you will and go for Cuddyer.

I've always liked Cuddyer. He got off to a slow start last year and eventually got hurt. I think he still has big potential if he gets to play somewhere. He's just a year or two removed from being one of baseball's top prospects.

I don't think Overbay will ever be a very good fantasy 1B. I think the best he will ever be is mediocre, and not much power.
