Will the Brewers miss Scotty Pods?

Postby packslu1 » Mon Apr 04, 2005 11:19 pm

Who is this Brady Clark fella you say? 3 runs scored, 2 steals, 2 rib's and some decent D plays in centerfield. The Brewer announcers were commenting on how Pods was somewhat of a defensive liability last year and Clark is an improvement. I don't remember Pods being a liability in the OF? Anyway its early, but if Clark keeps up a reasonable pace compared to this start, people in Brew town will soon forget Pods.....any thoughts?

Exactly. The ChiSox got robbed in that deal. I think the ChiSox are going to miss Lee a lot more than the Brewers are going to miss Pods.

Brady Clark is finally getting his shot. After scuffling with the Reds and Mets before coming to the Brewers in 2003, he finally showed promise with his 2004 oppertunity. His value will be in Stolen Bases and Runs, but also has a good On Base % and a little pop in his bat too!
I'm looking for:
.290 BA, 101 Runs, 15-18 Homers, 50 RBI, and 40 SB's

So long Scotty Pods!

I think around 12 HRs and 30 Steals is a little more likely.

I think Slomo's numbers are much more likely.
Seems like he has a more favorable impression of Clark than he had a month ago. :-D

Hard to ignore 2 steals on opening day, but he's still on the FA list in my league, so it's not like I'm exactly crazed about him. So far though, you were right and I was wrong. :-)

Yeah, Pods was a serious liability in the field. He'd run himself in circles trying to hunt down flyballs, and then his farily weak arm didn't help matters either. Clark is undoubtedly a defensive upgrade, although he's no Dave Krynzel in that respect.

40 SB for Brady sounds a little too optimisitic. I think 25-30 is a fair assesment, maybe 15 HR or so. He should score runs hitting in front of Spivey/Overbay/Lee/Jenkins, 100+ would not surprise. I would just be thrilled if he reproduced last season's .380 OBP.

Oh, and packslu1...nice picture sig.

I think it's more Carlos Lee that will make people forget Pods, then Brady Clark. Though Clark should be a good replacement for now, though he might have to watch out for Krynzel in the future.
