Fantasy 411 Q&A: Feb. 26, 2009
Siano’s out the rest of the week, so it’ll be Schwartz and I getting to your questions for the next couple of days. Remember to check out today’s podcast, which will be available on the site sometime this afternoon. For the first time in a really long time, you will see neither Mike nor Cory. Petey Mac will run the show alongside new addition to the 411 family Corey Gottlieb. They’ll talk underrated/overrated heading into ’09.
I stand by my guarantee that we’ll complete our mock draft before the start of the regular season. We’re in the middle of the 21st round now. I’ll post an update upon the conclusion of the round. Hopefully, a final mock draft result list will follow shortly after.
That’s all for now. Fire away!
FEATURED QUESTION OF THE DAY
I am in the process of finalizing my keeper list for my 12 team mixed
auction league. I have Orlando Hudson at $3. I am worried about the
wrist and the move from Chase Field to Dodger Stadium and wonder if it
would be better to have the roster spot…or is $3 worth the risk due
to his past production? I am pretty weak at the MI position and do not
yet know who will be available at the draft this year.
Chris, I don’t mind O-Dawg for $3… as Mike and I discussed on
Tuesday’s podcast, he should be good for a strong AVG, 10-12 homers and
steals, and decent run/RBI numbers depending on where he hits in the
lineup. But he’s no superstar, so this is a case where you have to
weigh his consistently good production vs. “roster spots have value.”
Who will be out there who might be more worthwhile that you think you
can get for a good price? The available market should make the call for
you here… if it’s deep, you might want to gamble and let him go, but
if not he’s a very reasonable keeper at that price.
