Gibbons or Casey

Postby Leiter Fan » Thu May 29, 2003 3:47 am

I currently have both Sean Casey and Jay Gibbons on my roster at 1B. I will be dropping on or the other this weekend though, since I need to clear a roster spot for Oswalt coming off the DL.

Which one of these guys is more of a keeper? I am much more familiar with Casey and I know that although he will hit for a good average, he's not exactly a power threat (although he does have 5 homers, 2 were at Coors Field). Does Gibbons have enough power to adequately offset the dropoff in batting average?

IMO - this is a no-brainer - go with Gibbons - drop Casey. Gibby has 40 HR power and should hit .280-.285.

I love this guy - drafted him this year and I think he could turn into a superstar. Casey is average at best.

I'd go with Gibbons also. Casey's drop off in power the past few years has been very disturbing. Gibbons should be good for at least 30 hr and 90 rbi's this year. That being said, I wouldn't want either of these guys as my starting 1B unless this is very deep league. I look at Gibbons as a 3rd OF or util/CI type guy.
