Mostly agreed. I think as long as he is hot, Monroe will be the closest to an everyday player of the bunch. And when Casey is on the bench, none of these guys really benefit, because Pudge Rodriguez has become the alternate first baseman. Also, Magglio Ordonez gets about one day off a week, so that's a spot for Thames to step in to get some more at bats.d18Mike wrote:Yes and Yes .... and no. You are going to see Thames, Young, Monroe and Casey all moving in an out of the lineup based on platoon advantage and historical match-up. Leyland loves the flexibility. Great for the Tigers -- hard to manage from a FB standpoint, however.
At 1B, Shelton will probably be given a chance to get his job back although he'll need to show something the remainder of the year in Toledo. I seriously doubt Casey will be back regardless. CF will be Granderson. RF will be Ordonez. LF will be Monroe/Free Agent/Trade Acquistition (still could go any direction there). Clevlen is indeed up right now as a reserve outfielder, but I don't think he'll quite be ready to be a fulltimer next year. He's probably due for at least some time in AAA.hayseed wrote:What's the Detroit OF/1B going to look like next year, with Clevlen up now? Anybody know?
Yeah for fantasy purposes he is probably useless. They will keep him well rested since he seems to be a bit fragile and at the same time keep Pudge fresh with some starts at first base instead of catcher. Casey's not 100% right now, so he's probably not getting as many at bats as they would like him to.wrveres wrote:So Casey has become useless.
10-15 AB's a week. is that what I am hearing?
