Better 1B to get or hang onto?

Postby fantasyjoker » Thu May 02, 2013 10:04 am

Looking to pickup a 1B on the rise. These guys are all available in my league. And all possibly underachieving thus far.

12 team H2H points based league.

Who you guys think is most solid ROS?

Brandon Belt
Yonder Alonso
Adam Laroche
Eric Hosmer
Nick Swisher

Ranking (2-4 are debatable):
Hosmer
Swisher
Alonso
Belt
Laroche

Hosmer has the highest ceiling and he has a great offense around him. He's young but too good to keep hitting this bad. Once he starts hitting, he will catch fire for the rest of the year. Swisher is a solid 20HR/80RBI guy and the offense around him has been hitting great lately. Belt is young but unpredictable. Alonso is good but his offense around him isn't. Laroche has been terrible so far and fallen to #6 in batting lineup from cleanup spot.


Please answer my question: viewtopic.php?f=26&t=459850&p=3611714#p3611714

1Swisher
2Hosmer
4Belt
3Laroche
5Alonso

Hosmer can be a stud but hasnt in the time he has been given. Swisher is and has been a predictable stud for years. I also like Belt but he is unpredictable (even tho i think he will end the year better then Hosmer) Laroche has done well in the past but isnt as good as the first two. And Alonso is ok but shouldnt be in the same convo as these other guys

I'd take Laroche. He'll turn it on (remember how much of a beast in the second half he is).
