Mourneau

Postby steamer33 » Wed Mar 24, 2010 10:27 am

What's the deal with this guy? Why is he ranked in the 50s on ESPN? Is it just me or is he being undervalued? He's just one tier below the top guys, but you can get him 3 rounds later. Would it not be worth it to not draft a top 5 1st basemen in round 1 & grab this guy in round 3 or 4?

If you can get Morneau in the 4th then absolutely grab him. Not really sure what's up with their rankings.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

I've been able to get Morneau for good value in a couple mocks and in a deep 18 team league. I think his value is dropping because of the back ordeal last year and the new outdoor stadium which will be brutal in April and September. But hitters rake in Col and Ny when the temps are cold. And I've read that the new Target field dimensions are of similar proportions to Citizens Bank Park. So it might be a band box for him.
thanks for reading, cws05nuts
