Glaus a good draft and dump?

Postby RAmst23 » Sun Mar 27, 2005 3:10 am

Troy Glaus seems to be hammering the ball this spring, but I really think he can't keep it up for the whole year. Anyone else think this is a great guy you can draft and ride for a month or two, then trade and make out bandit-like?

Any other players that this could be done with; only keep for about a month or two than trade for something better?

I agree with your statement about Glaus .... Lowell should be a very good guy to deal after the ASB. ;-D

Lowell comes to mind if you can find someone who does not know about is 2nd half fades.

Most top Cs fit the decription also.

As to Glaus, I question his ability to stay healthy more than his ability. And he is a VERY streaky player. So you have to be prepared for a month of some hideous numbers soemwhere along the line.

He's an injury risk, but if healthy, he can be a draft day steal going around the 8th-9th as he's gone. He'll hurt your average, but can put up some big power numbers... Good for Roto, not so sure about H2H..

Glaus almost always gets off to a good start and then falls apart in June and July. His career April and May OPS is .958, but his career OPS for June falls to .735 and July is .746.

So yes, Glaus is a great candidate to draft and trade. Don't get intoxicated by a great start. Cut bait in the middle of May so you don't get burned.

Ive stated a billion times in here how much of a serious injury risk he is and I have read experts that share the same view. If healthy he'll hit a ton of jacks, and hurt your batting average. But yes, definately trade him when he is hot, if not for the fact that he cools off, then the injury risk he presents.

After thinking about this a little bit, does Richie Sexson, Austin Kearns, and Ken Griffey Jr fall under this category?? I know eventually you have to keep your players, but these guys could start off well and then just fall apart.
