Trot Nixon or Cliff Floyd?

Postby kcs261 » Sat Mar 19, 2005 3:14 pm

Neither Floyd or Nixon can stay healthy. And, to top if off, neither can hit lefty pitching -- which makes these two almost clone-like. Anyway, I'm just looking for a guy to play in April until Berkman gets back. Who gets the call? Thanks.

I would go with Floyd becuase he will be starting everyday. Nixon had more seriosu injuries than Floyd and will likely not play against lefties. More ABs from FLoyd with less of an injury concern so...

Floyd less of an Injury concern? Are you serious? Floyd gets hurt almost every year...never fails. I like Trot cause hes in a better line-up...and his BA will be higher cause he wont bat against many lefties...

Hey if Back problems and workout programs rock your boat, more power to you and outside of avg, fewer ABs means less numbers:

Rotoworld:
Trying to avoid the back and quad problems that limited him to 48 games last season, Trot Nixon worked out 3-5 hours per day four times a week last month, conditioning his upper body with a kickboxing instructor and his lower body with a friend who operates a hip facility.
''The leg responded,'' Nixon said. ''When I do strength exercises, the whole offseason, no problem at all. Same with my back.'' Nixon added that he lost 14 pounds during his workouts. Getting frequent days off against left-handers should allow him to stay healthy enough to play in 130 games this year.

Nixon is the guy I drafted. And I'm inclined to go with him, too. I just hate the talk that he might sit against lefties in favor of Jay Payton. Then, again, Floyd isn't much better against lefties and could sit, too.

Floyd will sit for who? Valent or G. Williams? I can't imagine.


I am sure some Met fans can dig up Floyd's numbers vs lefties. I can't imagine they are that bad and can't be anywhere near as bad as Nixon's. It is a gamble either way with these guys, but back problems are tricky (see Mattingly) and can sap power. Floyd supposedly wants to run this year (which should boost his value) and increase his injury risk slightly....roll of the dice either way, but I stil like Floyd more in every category but avg.
