Alex Sanchez: What's your take?

Postby Titanic Grizzlie » Wed Mar 30, 2005 9:52 pm

It's now apparent that this guy is going to be starting at CF for the Devil Rays. He is lightnig fast and he wont get you more than 10 HR and 60 RBIs, but he easily could steal 35-40 bags this year. He hits for a decent average as well in the .285 to .300 range. He seems like to me his defintely worth the risk if you need steals.

He very likely won't get you more than 1 HR and 30 RBI. Once Baldelli returns I don't see anyway he finds more than the occasional pinch running playing time.

He's far from worthless in fantasy as long as he's playing, which may only be until the all star break or so, but in that time he could easily steal you 20-30 bases with a good average. Not a bad guy to throw in ur lineup if ur desperate for speed.

Desperate is the operative word. Sanchez blows. He is Juan Pierre without the OBP/avg/runs or the glove. Strictly an SB specialist and one of the WORST defensive players in the game. He is so bad in the OF that the team that had Cedeno roam CF cut Sanchez loose. I do not understand TB as they will not play the kid Gathright supposedly for being a hack with no displine at the plate and a lousy glove...so they go out and sign someone with the same problems who has no upside. Obviously something personal is going on there, but I suspect Pineilla will grow frustrated with Sanchez quickly and he will be ot of a job.

Theres only one thing on here I disagree about - Sanchez is far from being a SB specialist. His baserunning instincts are a joke. I also have to assume at this point Gathright will be called up after the requisit 1 month so they can pay him his contractual minimum. I just read an article recently detailing the theory more, but in a nut shell, if Gathright starts the yr on the club he will be eligible for arbitration - as long as he plays a month in the minors he's not eligible. Talk about making your employees happy, eh. Devil Ray fans - tell me Im wrong. Sanchez will play a month - thats it.

Your wrong! ;-)

Honestly I hope your right and Gathright does play, but I think Sanchez will have the job till Rocco is back.
