Starting Outfield?

Postby JDD » Thu Jan 06, 2005 3:33 pm

Tiger fans...

Who do you think will be your starting outfielders?

For that matter, who do you think should be on everyone's draft card, no matter the position.

There appear to be a lot of "Maybes" in Motown.

Thoughts?

LF = Marcus Thames / Rondell White
CF = Alex Sanchez / Nook Logan
RF = Bobby Higginson

Should be drafted:
IRod - You may have heard of him.
Carlos Guillen - should be had cheap - dont forget he is injured and will likely miss the season opener - he should only miss a couple weeks though. - Depending on how much you have to pay for him, he could be a great bargain - he was the 3rd best SS last yr after Tejada and Young.
Dmitri Young - Professional hitter - his value is low because he has 1b only eligibility and because he was injured for the majority of last yr.
Omar Infante - had a very good full season and most people familiar with him know he is ready to break out - easily one of the biggest true sleepers in fantasy - will be SS/2B eligible.
A. Sanchez - he has a solid BA, but a terrible OBP. He gets plenty of SBs, but isnt a good base runner (high CS%). He could easily get replaced by Nook Logan who is faster, a better base runner, and much much better defensively - the problem with Nook is h cant hit as well - yet.
Carlos Pena - You want an end of the draft breakout candidate? Try this: Pena hit 89/27/82/7/.242 last yr - obviously its the BA that keeps his value low. This offseason he was flirting with a .400 BA in winterball. Apparantly he took a couple more yrs to develop than people had thought, but he's finally here. Dont be the guy that passes on Pena.
Jeremy Bonderman - He's pretty much on everyone's "sleeper" list, so Im not sure how cheap he can be had anymore. He really figured it out last yr and he could be a great 3rd or 4th fantasy SP for you this yr.
Troy Percival - While he lost velocity last yr, its his location and experience that attracted the Detroit watchers this past yr. As long as he stays healthy he should remain a top 15 closer.
Uggey Urbina - Why not draft him in the last rd - he'll be traded to a contender to be their closer before the deadline anyway.

I count 9 Tigers that should be drafted in every league.

Honorable mention: Inge, Robertson, Ledezma

According to the Tigers site, they are interested in Maggs. If Ordonez ends up with the Tigs, then what happens in the outfield? I would assume that it would pretty much stay the same with Logan/Sanchez in center and White/Thames/Monroe in left, but what happens with Higgy? I'd hate to see that much money sitting on the bench (*cough*badcontract*cough,) and I doubt the Tigers would be able to trade him. Any thoughts?

I seriously want to see Monroe out there ahead of Higginson. And I mean everyday, not just against lefties. Watching Higginson last year, I just didn't see him as having much left anymore. As someone else mentioned, Higginson may have the spot just because of the money he makes, despite the fact that Monroe is probably the better option.

As far as Magglio goes, I'm not getting my hopes up, but with the way they landed Pudge last year, it's not impossible.
