re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

From all accounts Hamilton is gonna come up as a CF. From what I've read on him they said his D actually wasn't too bad for being new since his speed was able to make up some ground and will begin in AAA. While you would think Choo would be blocking him, he's not a CF. He's only played 70ish innings in 700 games as a MLB player. An injury would likely give him a call to the show, but if Choo struggles on offense I wouldn't be surprised if they took a chance on Hamilton and had Choo as a 4th OF to give Bruce/Ludwick days off or as trade bait (since he only has 1 year left on his deal).

And the Blue Jays rotation isn't bad, but I'd contest it may not even be the first or second best in its own division. Lot of question marks around them.

JM what are you talking about Heyward was crazy good last year.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

According to 1/2 of out fantasy league, Heyward is the best outfielder in the MLB.

Ya and it's funny that I'm the one spewing all the propaganda yet I continually have to talk these guys down as people are spazzing over them. RIDIC.

Yeah, don't know what you're talking about. J Up has exceeded expectations before. Heyward did so last year. That outfield is dynamite. Top 3 MLB OF, offensively and defensively.

Guy has already had 2 5+ WAR seasons and is only 23. Yeah I'd say he's pretty good.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Crazy good? What were all the players that were better than him? I think you're scale will top out early.

He's good. Sure. Yes. He still hasn't answered the hype he created in his rookie year though. But regardless, I'm more skeptical of the other two anyway.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Heyward was a top 5 OF last year and arguably a top 10 batter in all MLB. His offense was above average (120 wRC+ and .351 wOBA) and his defense was phenominal. I'd say his 2011 was more of a sophomore slump and him just getting figured out for a bit. Most players will regress at least slightly after a great year like he had.

As for the other two, I'd trust Justin more than BJ if I were to take one for next year. Guy has shown the potential to MASH, even if it was in Arizona which is hitter friendly. BJ isn't really more than an average hitter, but he's like Bourn that his speed will make up for some of it.

It'll be interesting to see how Upton x2 fares in hitting in a new park, but it will be tough for balls to drop in that OF with all of DAT SPEED.

I assume he's top 5 based on some hocus metric?

In any case...

Trout
Hamilton
Braun
McCutchen
Jones
Rios

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

You would not take Rios over Heyward, would you? If so, you have lost credibility in my eyes.

And my argument is supported by PP's statistics (first time they're not used against me, yay!)
