Pretty tough call but I lean slightly to Tabata. He has a little pop and is hitting leadoff.

I would go with Escobar or Tabata. Escobar has potential but he has to prove he can get on base more to be a definite top of the order guy. Last I read he'll be switching between hitting 2nd and 8th. Long term, I'd say take Escobar and keep him until the Royals lineup explodes with Moustakas, Hosmer, etc. You'd also get a little depth at SS for the eventual decline of Jeter, maybe not this year, but in the future.

However, if you feel this year is your big year I'd go with Tabata. In the short-run I think he'd bring more to the table this year, especially hitting in the top of the order. He's also young but then again your outfield doesn't look like it needs much help in the long run.

Have any advice for my roster? viewtopic.php?t=425675

I like Tabata the best of all the OFs. Snider would be second for me. I actually like Wigginton. I would hold onto Wigginton and see what his role is in the regular season. If he sees regular AB, he is a very, very solid 2B in fantasy. But if you won't want to hold onto Ty go with Tabata. He seems like to have decent upside, and people like him. I think Snider or Wigginton has the best upside for this year though. In h2h leagues, I lean towards power but what do I know. I usually lose in h2h leagues.

help me?
