Any 1B worth a roster spot?

Postby Bherman13 » Sat Jul 07, 2012 10:20 pm

14 teams, 5x5 scoring. My only current 1B eligible player is Duda, who has been dismal all season. Here are the top free agents available.

Moss, Moore, Kotchman, Dobbs, Pearce, Lind and Jose Lopez. Will any one of them get enough solid playing time to merit a roster spot?

You need to make a deal. None of them are very good and the only one likely to get most of the playing time is Kotchman, who's the worst of the list. Maybe one can catch lightning in a bottle, but who would you have to drop to pick one up?

moss seems to be splitting time with carter - playing vs righties, carter vs lefties
moore could if he gets more playing time, but is only hitting .182 so far in july
kotchman is the starter, but probably not worth picking up
dobbs won't be starting with miami getting Lee
pearce seems to hit minor league pitching good, but struggles with major league hiting
lind might be worth adding, he is usually the DH - since coming off the DL about 13 games - .263 avg, .603 slg, 4 HR, 8 RBI, 7 R, but does have 11 Ks
lopez is probably going to be spitting time with jason donald.

i would most likely pick lind out of these.

I'm strongest in the outfield, where I have Braun, Rasmus and Hamilton. Aoki in my Util spot who has been really hot. My only other top 100 ranked players on the season are Cano (20), McDonald (16), CJ Wilson (50), and Perez (99). Should I deal one of outfielders for a quality 1B?
