Who would you gamble on? (Thomas or Walker)

Postby Andy1234 » Fri Mar 04, 2005 5:20 pm

Who do you think will have the better season, Frank Thomas or Larry Walker?

Are either worth a late round flier, or are both destined for the WW?

I would take L. Walker just because he is going to start and start fairly healthy. Thomas could miss close to half the year (I haven't heard any further news) If Thomas is only out a few weeks I would probably go with him but the way it looks I will take Walker over Thomas.

Walker will play the whole year, Thomas may not be back until late May. Plus, I think Walker showed rejuvenation when he got to St. Louis last year :-D and I think he will continue to drink from the Fountain of Youth and have an excellent season. B-)

Thomas got cleared to go to ST, does that change anyone's opinion?

Getting cleared to go to ST is a long way from being ready to play at the MLB level :-o

They're both a big injury risk but this is a no brainer you definetaly go with Larry Walker here. His upside is way higher, if he stays healthy and gets 400+ AB's hitting in the 2 hole for the cards his numbers would be great!!! LW still can swing a mean stick!!! Health is his only issue.

If he gets 400+ AB's expect something like:
.294 avg .964 ops 31 hrs 102 rbis 106 runs
Straight Cash Homeyyy!!

Larry Walker could become a decent player but I don't see Thomas being anything.
