Help me make a choice at 1B.

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Help me make a choice at 1B.

Postby Frank Rizzo » Wed Apr 10, 2013 9:09 am

League and roster in sig.

Shallow league and I added Big Puma. Can't really afford to hold onto all 3 1B's and I'm not sure who to drop between Hosmer, Konerko, and Puma. Any and all advice/takes are welcome on these 3. Here are some of mine.

-I have faith in Konerko helping me some and not really hurting me anywhere but at SB's. I do not like that he's batting 5th behind the Big Donkey who ends innings frequently, hurting Paulie's chances at RBI's.

-I have many questions about Hosmer but he's got that potential thing going for him. I hate that he's batting 6th and I'm guessing KC would rather bat him 3rd if things started working for him at the plate.

-I'll admit it's going to be tough for me to drop Big Puma right now. Look at his stadium, look at where he's batting in the Texas lineup, look at how he only needs to hit now that he's DH'ing. This could be a huge year for Puma, barring injury.

Dunno what to do?

I'd like to but it's a shallow league as you can see from my sig, with small rosters. I don't think I could get much interest in him right now since no one was interested in him in our draft and I took him in the 12th round.

Try a Hosmer +choo for Adam Jones? Or try with Gardner for an of. Looks like you can move yours guys around a little

It's a tough call... Is Konerko finally on the decline or can we see another resurgence like 2010? Hosmer's average is currently a solid .318 and his FB% is down so far while his LD% is way up. I'd hate to give up on Hosmer too early, can you trade Konerko?

Thanks both of you. I have been trying to figure out a combo that I could get Adam Jones for. I love him but it just wasn't in the cards during the draft. I'm afraid his owner isn't in the mood to part with him at the moment.....I'll need him to cool off a bit.

Yes I'd like to move Konerko and will search it out.

It looks kind of tough for me at the moment since so many 1B's look decent so far.
