What do you guys think of Edmonds repeating last years stats

Postby Phatferd » Thu Mar 31, 2005 5:56 am

I had Drew and wanted someone who was a little safer bet, We use OBP along with BA and other things, so I wanted someone with a solid OBP in return for losing Drew.

I offered Drew, J. Wright and Percy for Edmonds, and Chris Carpenter (I think hes pretty valuable, we use k/bb).

This deal can bite me in the ass, but I think Edmonds is a safer bet than Drew. What do you guys think and would you take Percy out of the deal or is he needed to make it even?

Edmonds is a huge upgrade over Drew, and Carpenter is an upgrade over Wright. Losing Percy is doable since you're improving so much with the other 2 guys. I doubt the other guys accepts, but you should be happy if he does.

I have Edmonds on both my teams, as I think that he's VERY likely to do about the same as the last couple of years...if he doesn't knock himself out starring in too many webgems. I am inclined to think that you will be refused dealwise as I don't see Percy exciting anyone enough to make him deal Edmonds and Carpenter.

of course, I HATE admitting that Edmonds is a stud (see avatar...) but, he puts up very close to first round #s w/ the 40 HR...and can be had in the 3rd round. Sheff is the other guy who falls in there but he's got too many ? marks for my taste and is a few years older. I guess that I did have a 'strategy' to 'get' Edmonds, but he WAS the best available player when I grabbed him so...hmmmm... :-D

I think he has a good chance of repeating them or improving upon them...

As good as his overall numbers were last year, his second half of '04 was pretty ridiculous:

(70 games = 220AB's) .323, 50R, 21HR, 55RBI, 6SB, 1.156OPS

I have him on both my teams and expet big things. ;-D

I expect slight drop in homeruns(4/5 tops), main concern is injuries. We play specific outfield spots in our money league so I jumped on him in third round. Not too many better offensive centerfielders around.
Having said that I would make sure you have capable backup on your roster. I traded D. Lee after draft for C. Patterson so I could have backup. (play Patterson at UT meanwhile)
