Loving Matt Carpenter. Loving his impending 2B eligibility even more.
100 Runs if he sticks in the 1/2 hole seems to be a lock if his health holds.
Still not getting it with him. His upside seems to be Marco Scutaro. Yeah it is viable but certainly nothing to get excited about.
How is upside only Scutaro?
Carpenter has more power, more position eligibility, hits at the top of a much better lineup, and has had a great OBP throughout his pro career... .400+ at every MiLB level. Whats not to like?
Not sure if you realized it or not but hes a pretty big guy - 6'3 and 200+ so he's not some little slap hitting hobbit like Scooter.
I mean Scutaro has never even had a league average ISO and is borderline un-rosterable in 12 team leagues.
Carpenter should be owned in 100% of leagues and started most of the time.
