That is crazy. Vernon will come right. He was off to a very slow start in April 2004 as well.


thanks, it's the first time I've owned him and I'm starting to have buyers remorse.

Good to know he's had a history of slow starts.

1 year splits are basically insiginificant, but you're right. He's a career .224 hitter in April. Vernon will be fine. You'll be upset that you traded him if you do it now...

Actually I think it's closer than the consensus here, as Floyd can produce in that lineup when he's healthy. Floyd definitely the higher injury risk though.

Vernon is the better player. BUT I think the guy is over-hyped. He had one really good year -- two years ago. And even then, he had a GREAT first-half and then tailed off big-time in the second half. Now, with Delgado gone, he has no real protection in that lineup. So...needless to say, I'm not that high on Wells.

Vernon is very over-rated IMO, but he's still much better than Floyd.

2 years ago, in 2003, he hit .299 before the all-star break and .344 after the all-star break. His OPS went up almost 50 points.

I really wish ALL of my players would tail off and hit .344. That would be great...

EDIT: You might be right about Delgado's protection, but we'll have to wait and see on that one.

I still think .300-30-100-100 is well within reach for Ol' Vernon.

Haha. You might be right on his BA in 2003. But you conveniently left out his HR and RBI numbers.

2003:

1st half - 23 HRs, 84 RBIs
2nd half - 10 HRs, 33 RBIs

And in particular, he only had 5 HRs in August and September. Then, he loses a bunch weight in 2004 (in the midst of the steroid scandal) and his power numbers drop to 23 with 67 RBIs and a 270-something avg.

Wells is definitely over-hyped, though I don't like Floyd much, either.

From a fantasy standpoint, I like Floyd. When he does play, he produces. If he gets hurt, you play someone else in his position. I just hate those day to day injuries.

And you can't plug in a substitute for a player who's not sitting? :-?

Would anyone drop Vernon for Matt Lawton or B. Clark? This is 2 years in a row that I have now been burned on Wells and he is quickly getting on my bad side?
