Predictions for Vernon Wells

Postby Quaker » Sat May 10, 2003 11:29 pm

Wells just hit his 8th HR and knocked in his 34 and 35th rbis. However, he's only hitting .265.
While he has great power numbers, his ba is obviously not so hot now. Where do you all see his numbers at the end of the year? What about for his career? Do you he'll be like the former Jay Joe Carter, who consistently hit 25-30 hrs and knocked in 100+ rbis, but normally hit around .260-.270? Or will he hit for a better average?

Well, to expect him to keep up this pace is insane, but he does appear to have a sweet spot in the Jays order to hit in. I'd say .290 isn't out of the question, w/ 30 HR's and 110 RBI, 100 runs.

I think Wells is going to improve year after year. This year I'd say probably .275-30-110.

Agree with Madison's numbers. It's too bad Toronto doesn't use his speed or he'd be a top 10 outfielder.

I dunno why he should steal though. That'd be taking the bat out of Delgado's hands

Wells has been on a tear of late, hitting .406 with 4 HRs, 10 RBIs, and 6 Rs in his last 7 games. His average is now up to .288 and he's on pace to hit 42 HRs and drive in 166 runs. He most likely won't keep up that pace, but as long at Stewart and Catalanotto keep getting on base, 120 rbis isn't out of the question.
All of you who got Wells in the late rounds, pat yourself on the back if you already haven't.
