Richie Sexson? What is his worth?

Postby Guest » Wed May 14, 2003 7:43 pm

Do you think Sexson's gonna be a 45-50 HR hitter this year? I have him on my team, and I'm wondering if it's time to trade him for a higher-level guy, i.e. Giambi, Thome, Delgado, Bagwell, Pujols? Is he as good as these upper-tier guys, or should I try to deal for one of them?

it looks like sexson might hit 50 this season. there are two things that can knock him down a few notches:

1) injury. i hear a bum knee slowed him down to his 30-35 HR level last season.

2) teams realizing "hey, why should we pitch to this guy? let's let geoff jenkins/wes helms/royce clayton beat us, not the big stick"

personally, i like richie sexson a bunch and think he's a mighty fine ballplayer. he looks to be having fun... he's probably THE MAN up in milwaukee, he's bleaching his hair, he's leading the ML in homers... live it up, dude. cleveland produced a lot of exported bats around his time, just imagine if they had brian giles and richie sexson to rebuild around... but hey, who could fault 'em when they were sitting on a stud like manny and of course, thome?

I definatly agree with the post above. If you can get an upper tier fantasy player for him do it. Teams are going to realize if they give him nothing to hit that there is noone else in the lineup that can pick him up.

Exactly. You have to look at these homer-studs and see who have they have around them, b/c if their surrounding cast is weak, teams will just pitch around him and go for the easier out. I think this may happen to Huff too if he keeps his HR hitting ways up, cause he is in an even worse offensive situation.

Hey, Geoff Jenkins is a pretty good hitter. Give him time and health and he'll be up there ranking around the teens among outfielders

I'd take anyone of the guys listed above over Sexson. He will hit you 40+ bombs but the avg is going to be .270 at best. Plus the above post are right about Sexson being in a weak lineup which will hurt his RBI and run chances.

No one was pitching around him today (vs. the Cubs) -- 5 AB (so far...) 4 Ks, and an infield pop-up.

As a Sexson owner, I say "ugh".
