DateQuestionAnswer
2012-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Grady Sizemore? If he ends up hurt again by the end of spring training, is Ezequiel Carrera a fantasy asset?
(LoyalRoyal from Doin' Time in Leavenworth)
He's just so risky. Unless you get him late in a draft, I wouldn't bother. I don't see him ever staying healthy for a full year. Carrera could very well be a fantasy asset, especially with his speed, although the Indians do have other options. They could put Brantley in CF again and put a guy like Shelly Duncan in LF (though I don't think Brantley is a good CF). They have Ryan Spilborghs and Aaron Cunningham too, but I think Carrera has the inside track on those two. The interesting thing with him is how often they batted him leadoff when he was filling in last season. (Derek Carty)
