Podcast: The Truth is Beckham-ing
Drew Stubbs could be ready to be a full-time player in Cincy.
Sunday evening I got the opportunity to sub for Lenny Melnick who was catching up on his sleep after that 24-hour talkathon on the weekend. Tony Cincotta, Rich Wilson, and yours truly spent an hour debating some of the hot topics of the day on the FantasyPros911 show over at Blogtalkradio.
We got the ball rolling with a discussion on some of the rumours concerning Adrian Gonzalez of the Padres and the White Sox’s willingness to possibly look at parting with their soon-to-be second baseman Gordon Beckham. Is Beckham a player on the rise in 2010 and what can we expect from him looking to the immediate future?
Is Drew Stubbs going to lay claim to the centrefielder job in a very crowded Cincinnati outfield, or does Chris Dickerson step it up this spring and reclaim the job?
Does Grady Sizemore have the potential to bounce back in 2010 and now that it appears he is making a move into the two-slot in the Indian batting order this year, how does that affect his value for the upcoming season?
Moving forward we examined some of the positional battles that will be shaping up this spring. Who has the inside track for the closer role in Houston this year, Matt Lindstrom or Brandon Lyon? The trifecta of Jason Frasor, Scotts Downs and Kevin Gregg are all in the mix for ninth inning duties in Toronto, and there’s an on-going battle in New York between Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain for the fifth starter job in the Yankee rotation.
