Drop Hosmer for Alonso?

Postby eromano33 » Sat May 04, 2013 12:00 pm

Very tempted to dump the perennial bust Hosmer for Yonder Alonso this morning. Also available at 1B are LaRoche and Ike Davis.

Here's the rest of my 10 team, roto league team for reference:


C: Carlos Ruiz
1B: Mark Reynolds
2B: Brandon Phillips
SS: ELvis Andrus
3B: Adrian Beltre
OF:Ryan Braun
OF: Justin Upton
OF: Austin Jackson
UTIL: Melky Cabrera
UTIL: Michael Morse
BN: Eric Hosmer
BN: Brett Gardner
DL: Curtis Granderson

SP: Yu Darvish
SP: Mat Latos
RP: Mariano Rivera
RP: Casey Janssen
P: Addison Reed
P: Bobby Parnell
P: Jake Peavy
P: Shelby Miller
BN: Paul Maholm
BN: Tony Cingrani
DL: Jered Weaver

Also, as a sidenote, considering dropping Parnell for Mujica and dropping anyone for Nolan Arenado. Thoughts on these would be appreciated as well. Thanks!

My quick response is this:

I was hoping that Hosmer would come out of the gates quickly like you, but deep down I knew he would be what we feared the most. e.g. The poster-child: Post-allstar break, break-out monster when we drafted him to be. .
Be the change you want to see in this world.

I would hold onto Hosmer. I am not sold on Alonso though I could see grabbing Ike Davis instead.
