Sheffield <,> or = to last yr

Postby klvrdude » Sat Mar 26, 2005 2:12 pm

I recently drafted Shef in the 3rd round and before I use him as trade bait I was wondering what people thought ...

1. Will he do better, worse or the same as last year's #?

2. Will he hit double digits in SB?

3. Is he too much of an injury risk even with off-season surgery?

I'm saying he'll do equal to or better than last year. It was hit first season in the AL (in a long time or ever, not gonna look it up) and he started out sluggishly, but the Sheff was cookin' after that ;-D

I think he will have a huge year (i.e., better than last year) but I don't know about the 10 steals.

His numbers last year were amazing and thats with a bum shoulder that he said hurt a ton. Remember when he had a huge homerun drought at the beginning on the season?? And he still ended up with a ton of homers. This year he will actually be healthy.Hes gonna have a huge year.

worse because he was nasty last year and has been inconsistent throughout his career...Matsui is the yankee outfielder to own this season

I don't think he'll repeat this year. The skills are still there, but his advancing age makes me skittish about owning him.

this is a guy who was considering retirement almost the entire second half. you guys can take him in the second round--i'll pass since that injury risk is way too great

4 posts say he's a Beast
3 posts say he's a Bum....

Clear as mud.

Keep those comments coming and I'm sure we'll find dominant consensus.

ps. I got Shef in the 3rd and thank you for all of you who have already posted.

Look at what he did last year with a bum shoulder and a slow start. Finished, what, third in MVP voting?
His age doesn't scare me, but the swirling steroid rumors do. One thing people forget about steroids is they can help keep you from breaking down over the wear-and-tear of the season. It's not just the big muscles.
Still, I peg him as a mid- to late-second rounder who will easily put up first-round worthy numbers if he plays all year. He is a beast.
