The Must-Own Matt LaPorta Thread

Recommended Posts

You don't allow him the opportunity to have the player he was traded for? Bummer. In my nl-only league, I drafted LaPorta and now get C.C. as compensation.

that is a pretty cool rule......does someone own Gamel?

I own Matt Gamel. It was a deep draft, and I decided to give a shot at him and pass up on Scott Elbert and Zach McCallister. Elbert could come back and bite me in the a**, as well can McCallister, but Gamel is closer to the majors so I took him. By the way, this was in Feb., so I had no idea Gamel was going to hit like this. But thank god he is.

i meant does anyone own Gamel in his league....

I was curious, if Laporta and Gamel would have been dealt for CC, and both were owned in that league of his, Who would get Sabathia?

good question. How did your league handle the MCab + Willis for Maybin trade?

Does anyone have an inside scoop as to if and when LaPorta will be playing his first game with Cleveland?

You think so?

Mat Gamel:

344 AB, 15 HR, 75 RBI, 70 R, .381 BA... 62K... OBP .443, SLG .637

Matt LaPorta:

296 AB, 20 HR, 66 RBI, 55 R, .291 BA... 62K... OBP .404, SLG .584

That was then. These are Gamel's number's the last 2 months.

July - .243/.288/.350 - 1 HR

August - .139/.319./.250 - 1 HR

So yes it is fair to say Laporta is far and away the better prospect/hitter/beast/olympian/pimp then Gamel ever will be.

How does that work if someone else owned a prospect that was in the CC trade as well.
