Check out Gonzalez line last year compared to Fielder (both in first year)
Fielder: H/AB R HR RBI S AVG
154/569 82 28 81 7 .271
A Gonz H/AB R HR RBI S AVG
173/570 83 24 82 0 .304
They were very similar players last season w Fielder getting a few steals and Gonz. having a better average. I think you will have to pay alot more for Fielder and you wont get much more production if any more than Gonz.
I thought about Gonzalez and I just looked at the waiver wire and he is there. I remember almost picking him in the last round but I went with Overbay. I have Blalock, Freel, and Overbay on my bench on offense and Dotel, Howry, and Mike Gonzalez pitching wise and our league does holds. Who would you drop?
I may try to package Kent and Contreras for an upgrade at my 4th SP spot. I have Zambrano, Sheets, and Harden. Then I could just pick up Gonzalez.
