Oracle Report: Player Profile - Ginacarlo Stanton
Giancarlo Stanton is that mythical man, the one that can send balls flying into the orbit that draw oohs and aahs from the crowd. His power is prodigious. His smile is contagious. He is, in three words, fun to watch. No debate there. The debate centers around two main questions with the Marlins' slugger. (1) Can you maintain his MVP pace and (2) Can he be an elite fantasy player? I'll investigate in this Player Profile.
Thank goodness I didn't have a top 3 fantasy pick last year because you convinced me that Trout would not live up to the hype in 2013. I'll hold onto Giancarlo and sit back and watch the HR, Runs, and RBI's pile up. Not bad production considering I grabbed him with the 52nd pick.
Thanks Ray... Have been waiting for this player profile for a while. Good info. I have him in my money league, and i think i will keep him instead of selling high. At the moment, my team can carry his future .265 - .270 avg.
Stephen Youmans - I dont think that is good enough. I like the return, dont get me wrong, but Lee has a high WHIP and Holliday no power yet. You should be able to do better I would think. #2 --- The 3 for 3 is better, but again, not a "win" per se.
Derek - Gee very safe, very boring. Can't tell someone that he isn't better than Walker right now, though clearly Walker is more talented.
Drop Taijuan Walker who is on my DL, move Mesoraco to my DL and pick up Dillon Gee? Other possible drop would be Broxton who will lose his job soon or Castellanos.
Ray- I am currently trying to sell high on Stanton in a H2H pts weekly lineups. I have Braun, Harper, Bruce, and now maybe Mauer on the DL. is Stanton and Josh Beckett for Cliff Lee and Matt Holliday getting enough
