  1. So my understanding is that Alvarez is a better pick-up for this year than Viciedo. Is that about right?

  2. Keeper league owner, I’m getting pretty frustrated with S.F. How much longer are they going to hold Bumgarner down? He was overpowering last night, and they don’t have a great 5th starter option.

  3. For sure. Alvarez is on another level compared to Viciedo in terms of their prospect level.

    Viciedo NEVER takes a walk and has a massive platoon split in his minor league career so far. He does make better contact than Alvarez, but Alvarez is the better overall hitter. Viciedo has potential to match Alvarez’s power but at the moment Alvarez has rare power for a prospect.

    Of course, Viciedo is one of those Cubans that hits everything. If he gets on a hot streak he might have more initial success than Alvarez. Who knows.

  4. Bumgarner is not ready. the only difference is that he has only let up one HR

  5. I picked up Viciedo cause I have no backup to Cantu at 3rd. I have Brett Wallace (had Alverez….damm), but he hasn’t been called up yet. Now I need a replacement for Tulowitzki. Is it worth dropping Wallace for a SS, or should I drop Viciedo and deal with Cantu (who’s not a terrible option) until Wallace comes up. I think Wallace is the better hitter, but Toronto doesn’t seem to be in any hurry to bring him up. suggestions?

  6. Love the upside on Viciedo. Ozzie says if he hits, he’ll play.
    My guess is that he’s a year away and expectations have to be tempered for now

  7. Wallace isn’t up because he can’t play 3b and likely never will in the bigs.

  8. Putz over Fernando Rodney for save chances?

  9. No, I think right now that Rodney is the better choice for Saves.

  10. This. MadBum is 20, and while he’s gotten some velocity back if the reports I hear are correct, his offspeed stuff isn’t nearly good enough for him to succeed in the majors now. I’m not even sure he should be up next year unless he absolutely destroys the PCL for the rest of ’10 and much of ’11 with at least average breaking stuff.
