"When camp opened, the Phillies' slugger was experiencing soreness in his left wrist…but only when batting. That's all. Burrell injured a tendon in his wrist last summer and elected not to have surgery to have it repaired. Pretty shocking that it's bothering him again, huh? Oh, and he also missed their game last Friday because of a sore right quad. " - fanball

Thanks for clearing that up.


He is trying to say that the only thing Spring Training stats are good for are making wise transactions due to the good or bad hype generated from ST.

Yeah I remember reading that, then the next day or so Burrell said it wasn't true.

Spring Training is more important than many believe. Soranio was 0-16 and will be great to trade for. Burrel is doing wel and if hes on your team, (and you don't trust that he'll do well) this is the time to trade him.

I agree that rbi's, and homeruns dont count. but stolen bases and hits are importnat to look at. Odds are, the players who don't do well in spring will rebound mid April, but from a fantasy stand point, some stats are important.

my 2 cents


No ST stats are important to look at. The only relevant info you can gain from ST are position battles, injuries and playing time (I guess you can put under position battles but it's a little different I think).

My thoughts are spring training stats are that they are a good indicator of a player's performance this year if he is putting up good numbers. If a good player is slumping then I do not think it will have an effect on his stats during the season.

I think the point eftda was trying to make about ST stats is that the astute fantasy owner can use them to personal advantage.

OK, maybe that was not his point, but it was the summary I got from his post :-D.

I think this is the 2nd Hitting coach Philly has gone through in the last two seasons, and each one claims that they know how to fix the guy. Sooner or later Pat is going to figure it out. He has all the talent in the world, its just a shame to see it going down the tubes. :-t
