I'm thinking of going for the young hot sleeper and want opinions on Casey Blake (Cleveland) and (gulp) Keith Ginter (Milwaukee). Sean Burroughs (San Diego) is also available.
Any opinions on these sleeper third basemen?
BTW I think Dye is going to have a great year, and I picked him up in late rounds for my teams. A steal in my book.
Ginter isn't starting, so don't take him. Burroughs will get you more runs and higher average. Blake will likely have more HRs and RBIs. Neither steals much. Both are decent enough options. I would not characterize either as a "young, hot, sleeper." Blake is 30 years old. Burroughs is young and certainly has a higher ceiling than Blake, but it is questionable whether he'll ever develop much power.
Munson is the starting 3b for Detroit, not Young. Young was playing OF and DH. Munson's like Blake. Low BA, but some power. He's older than Burroughs, younger than Blake.
But, I don't see why you need any of these guys since you already have Crede and Ensberg. Be patient.
