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.
