Nook Logan - Any ideas?

Postby thomasps3 » Tue Apr 26, 2005 10:16 am

All right guys, he has played in like 13 games and has 33 ABs. With this in mind, what do you think is a reasonable expectation for him this year? I am out of my mind to expect 15 SBs and a .270 average? Or is that too much? Thanks!



Leave your post too, and I'll answer....

I like Logan a lot over the short term, in the wake of the Ordonez injury – whatever it may end up being. Higginson and Thames are stinking up the outfield, so Logan should get considerable time. If Ordonez comes back, then Logan could be battling for Monroe’s job.

Trammell called him “the fastest player in the league” recently. So, the steals could be higher if he gets a green light. He has enough of a track record from last year to give me confidence in your batting avg. projection.

However he is batting 9th.

15 sbs and .270? You would be happy with that? I surely wouldn't.. Let's see him hit some more. That tiger offense hasn't shown what they're capable yet ..

well, to be perfectly honest, I picked him up in my AL only league that requires you to carry 5 OF's. He's my fifth, and with SBs at a premium, I figured if he got any significant playing time, he'd be pretty good for double digit steals. He was only a $1, so no big loss. Juts trying to get a reasonable expectation of what he really is capable of....

With Magglio out for quite a while, and Thames and the left handed hitting outfielder whose name I refuse to ever say again are struggling, Logan will get every chance to prove himself. He fits in well defensively and you cannot question his speed. Offensively, he's putting the ball in play and avoiding K's, as long as he does that he should be ok, but he will likely be the #9 hitter at all times. He's never been known to be an offensive juggernaut, so I'd be happy with a .270 avg.
