    Would keeping Yonder Alonso make sense?

    Im in a keeper league, I dont want to keep more than 2 1B. I have Teixeira, Ortiz, Hart and Alonso. With Corey Hart missing the first 6-8 weeks and David Ortiz nearing the twilight of his career. Would I be crazy to keep Tex and Alonso?

    • Like Da Commish has said his power has yet to show, but he does hit half his season in Petco and last season was his first full season. So I expect 3-4 years from now he will be a sought after 1B. That being said, if you can find a more productive 1B elsewhere you could probably drop him for this season and still acquire him cheap in the future.

    • In most leagues you would have a great chance of drafting Alonso even if you put him back in play.Nobody is clamoring to own the first baseman for the Padres yet. He was a first round pick out of school but he has not shown the power to be a high draft pick.
