troy glaus or moises alou?

Postby duckbillgates » Sat Feb 26, 2005 1:18 am

Not really asking the question, just using this to illustrate a point.
I'm really starting to think that 3B is getting close to being the deepest position.
Glaus is the 11th ranked third basemen in the Cafe rankings, i.e. if you were one of the last team to fill your 3B slot in a 12-team league, you get "stuck" with Glaus. Not bad.
Alou is the 35th ranked outfielder, meaning if you were one of the last teams to fill your final OF slot, you get Alou.
Who is worth more? I dunno. Pretty close, maybe slight edge to Glaus if he puts it back together.
But if you're keeping a third baseman based on old notions of position scarcity, you should probably rethink that this year.

I like Alou for this year behind bonds... he could easily hit 35 hrs with 120 rbis, much less injury risk
glaus is a good 3 bagger but id take a wright to go along with him

I like Glaus over Alou this year by a wide margin.

Alou is 35 ... going on 36, has to play a very difficult RF in SF, hit most of his HRs last year at Wrigley, and now has to play 1/2 of his games in a pitcher's park.

Glaus will never help your average, but coming to a hitter's park, BOB, his power becomes more threatening. Could be 40 HRs (if he can stay healthy ... always a BIG IF with him :-o )

Alou is a career .300 hitter in all his seasons. I wouldn't doubt him. He is one of the most underrated players in baseball.

alou's home/away splits last year scare me, and glaus being glaus scares me -- i guess i'd say glaus based on the reward aspect of risk/reward, but i have no plans to draft either

Im also in the avoid both camp. Glaus is such a risk at a deep position, and Alou is moving out of one of the best HR parks into a weaker hitting park. His numbers are definitely coming down.
