Podcast: D-Backs in the Outfield
Will Orlando Hudson help the Twins repeat in the AL Central?
Is there any better way to spend Super Bowl Sunday than talking some baseball? Add in a mock draft or two and it couldn’t get any better! Subbing last week for Rich Wilson, I got the opportunity to spend time talking baseball with two old friends, Lenny Melnick and Tony Cincotta of FantasyPros911 fame.
We got the ball rolling by reviewing the five-year, $80 million contract recently given to Justin Verlander of the Tigers and his status heading into the 2010 season. Will we see the 2008 or 2009 model Verlander this year?
Did the Twins make a smart move in signing Orlando Hudson and has this acquisition vaulted them to being the pre-season favourite to repeat in the AL Central?
We then took a look at the Arizona Diamondbacks outfield. Should Chris Young and Conor Jackson be included in your Fantasy plans for the 2010 season? It could be getting a bit crowded in the Arizona outfield this spring.
One of the many questions that has popped up this offseason surrounds third base. After the first level of elite corners disappears there appears to be a rather drastic fall off into that second tier. Does Aramis Ramirez report to camp healthy? Can Jorge Cantu repeat that 100-RBI season and does Adrian Beltre show up in Boston with all his equipment intact? When do we reach, and do we even have to reach to find that solid corner after the top-tier moves off the board?
