      I'm not playing this year, but who are your top picks at each position for the American League?  I'm just curious.  Perhaps it'll start a good discussion.

      You're mixing leagues, optimus.

      Carlos Gonzalez is a player I don't know a lot about.  His 2010 stats are definitely impressive.

  3. optimus grimlock profile image59
    optimus grimlockposted 7 years ago

    my bad, ive known about him for 3 years and hes a great of. I look for vernon wells,b gardner,mike aviles to have big years

    1. shogan profile image84
      shoganposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Gardner is now officially a lead-off man, I guess.  He didn't do much today.
      As far as Wells goes, just don't put him in against lefties, huh?

      It's kind of hometown of me, but I'm going to say that AGon will be the most valuable 1st baseman in the AL this year (yes, I'm aware of Cabrera).

    you sox fans overrate agon to much 35 fomer 95 rbi's max and wells hits good against leftys

    1. shogan profile image84
      shoganposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      95 RBI with Ellsbury, Pedroia, Crawford, and Youkilis in front of him?  Naw...you're underrating the whole team.  Assuming no injuries, Gonzalez'll have 20 more than that.  I'm not a blind fan.  115 RBI is reasonable, all things considered.  And I'll agree with you on around 35 homers. 

      For his career, you're right, Wells hits lefties pretty well.  In 2010, however, Wells only hit .198 against lefties.

        I think the Red Sox as a team are overrated, but AGon should have over 100 RBI easily. He's never had this kind of help in a lineup before.

        What the Red Sox are really going to miss is the production they got from Beltre last season. Looking at the stats, he was easily one of the top 5 players in the American League last year. Everyone seems to be ignoring what a big loss that was, and AGon will have to have a very good season to offset it.

        1. shogan profile image84
          shoganposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          Yeah, I am DB Cooper, but Beltre was "replaced" by Youkilis.  That's not bad.

          I do think some Sox fans are overrating this team, but the offense is slightly improved no matter how you cut it.  My worry is at one position and one position only: catcher.

    never said anything about the whole team just agon! pedroia will oroduce as log as he stays healthy an cc well we know hes gunna have a banner year!

    1. shogan profile image84
      shoganposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Yeah, but AGon's RBI total is team dependent, naturally.

    also the lost of Victor martinez will really hurt he can hit and handle a pitching staff well!

      Unfortunately he couldn't throw out a runner to save his life.

    2. shogan profile image84
      shoganposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      He also doesn't handle a pitching staff well, IMO.

      I don't know if you're talking to me, optimus.  I don't see how Crawford relates?
