$ Value of Stanton

Postby markgrebowsky » Sat Feb 02, 2013 9:22 am

5x5 Mixed League with 15 team and $280 cap for 25 players

In this league top sluggers tend to go above most estimates for instance
2012 Albert Pujols $45
2012 Miguel Cabrera $44
Alex Rodriquez at his peak $54

How much is Giancarlo Stanton worth this season?

Stanton doesn't hit .320 like Pujols or Miggy.

That's seems reasonable but I bet he'll go for more. Power is a scarce commodity these days and Stanton is probably the best bet to lead the league in HR.

Agreed. Especially if 2 guys really, really want him.

I think that's about right especially in a redraft league. He won't put up the average and that team is going to be so bad, why would anyone pitch to him. I still think he's going to get his hrs but I don't see him being able to come close to guys in the first tier in Rs Or rbi either

I could see him going for $35 but I wouldn't be the one spending it. Love the HR but I don't see the other numbers getting there.

Agreed on this, although in a keeper league I'd be all over him if I could lock him up for a few years at this price. Once he gets some talent around him, the rest of the numbers should fall in line with his power.

He might lead the league in hrs but most of them probably will be of the solo type. Who's going to get on base in front of him?
