Luis Matos!

Postby George_Foreman » Tue Apr 26, 2005 1:06 am

i'm surprised there hasn't been much discussion of matos yet. he had an off year last year, but the baltimore CF is hitting in a great lineup and he's stealing bases! his two from tonight pushes him up to 6 on the year, and together with the .300+ average, 12 runs and 13 rbi thus far, it seems to me like he could be one of the better sleepers this year for deep leaguers. i don't think he'll hit .330 on the year, but .300 wouldn't surprise me, and i don't think 15/20 is rediculous. heck, even 30 SBs wouldn't be absurd at this point.

anyone else have thoughts on the guy?

i just picked him up last week...he has made a very nice addition to my lineup. i am now reaping in the runs that he scores, mostly from the other guy on my team...tejada. matos is solid this yr. ;-D

He's looking good right now. Looking like injuries may have caused last years dropoff from 2003. He'd be on a couple of my teams if I wasn't having trouble finding room for him.

1-2 tonight with a run and an rbi. ;-D

another thing that's impressive about matos is that he's walked twice as much as he's struck out this yer (6 to 3).

:-? Hmmmm.... would you drop Taveras for him? Numbers are pretty damn close and both teams have big bats behind each. Both are possible SB junkies.

well, since i think matos is a better hitter than taveres, i certainly would.

that said, there are other thinks to take in to account. baltimore has a much better lineup, but matos is hitting towards the bottom of it (6, 7, 8 hole). houston's lineup isn't nearly as good (especially without berkman), but taveras has hit at the top recently, giving him a better chance to score runs (in theory, anyways). also, i think that while matos is pretty much guaranteed playing time for the rest of the year, once berkman comes back (which would be quite a boost to the houston lineup), it might push taveras out of the lineup or at least cut in to his playing time. if this happens, matos will certainly be a better play.

anyhow, i'd go with matos, but there are obviously reasons you might want to go both ways on it.

<img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif> You're not helping. :-D I have so many guys on the fence right now. Andruw Jones and Victor Martinez are two steps away from working at Don Pablos.

do not, under any condition, drop v-mart. no way. never. ever.

andruw jones... maybe if your league is like 6 teams or something. but both of those guys are worth a bench spot at the very least.

No I wouldn't. I just don't like them. ...until they get good. ;-)

Look at what Matos did last year. Sure he has had a hot start and plays in a nice line-up, but he hits way down on the order and is just as likely to hit .250 from this point forward as he is to hit .300. I'd take him over Taveres, but I am not too excited about him.
