  1. Dyson or Tony Toni Tone Campana?

  2. Hey, my 10-team AL-only league has 25 man rosters (so 250/350 potential AL players are on rosters!). I may pick up Dyson if he hasn’t been grabbed already and drop a reliever.

  3. He is K’ing a lot in AAA (22%). I wouldn’t consider that to be a good sign at all, esp. since in the past, he has not K’d at anything above 14% at the AAA level.

  4. If the Indians looked for more offensive production out of their first baseman, Matt LaPorta’s name would be low on the replacement list. Johnny Damon figures to push Shelly Duncan out of left field, so Duncan would have first crack at any extra playing time at first. Even then, Kotchman is a far superior defender to either player and Manny Acta values defense. Kotchman isn’t going anywhere.

    Maybe in a 20-team AL only league sure, but I don’t see any reason to spec add LaPorta right now.

  5. Yeah, the K rate is higher than normal, which is really the only negative. But it’s only 79 at-bats, so it shouldn’t be enough to scare anyone away considering the power he has displayed.

  6. Very similar skill sets, but Campana will sit against lefties, so Dyson will probably get more at-bats. Of course, once Cain returns, Dyson will likely see his playing time diminish, so for the season, Campana is prob better.

  7. Who would you rather have ROS (pick 2)- Dyson, Andres Torres, Raburn, or Marlon Byrd.

  8. Wow, well both Dyson and Byrd have playing time issues when injured players return. Torres is def one of the two since he should get the most at-bats. Raburn is playing himself out of a job, but he’s obviously not this bad, so at least he has the chance of starting most of the rest of the season. So i’d go those 2

  9. I agree. Raburn should eventually snap out of it and only has to contend with Santiago for playing time
