Mark Kotsay- Underated ?

Postby Ny YaNkS 2590 » Sun May 01, 2005 11:07 am

I think Kotsay is a very underated player.

Last night he went 5/6.

What do you think ?

I think before that he was 1-22. He's an average player offensively, average speed and a decent defensive outfielder. Basically an average player.

He's a great OF. He doesn't flop all over the place like Byrnes and Swisher.

if he was on a team that stole bases, yes. High AVG is good for Roto, and if Oakland offense ever gets going he should score a bunch of runs.

He's not underrated in fantasy, because he's not worth a whole lot. However, last year his VORP was 45.3, right below Chavez and Varitek, and right above Juan Pierre, Lew Ford, and Derrek Lee.

Mark Kotsay is one of those guys who is a extremly valuable almost superstar player in REAL Baseball. In fantasy he is nothing speical at all.

But in real baseball, he is EXTREMLY valuable. He is one of the best lead off men in the game, he sets the table, he plays a gold glove center field, Mark Kotsay is one of the best "hitters" in baseball.

I agree that he is underated. That being said you cant get CHIT for him trade wise i have tried. This is going to sound crazy, but this is the kind of player that will win you your fantasy league.Dont get me wrong he is NOT a stud by ANY stretch of the imagination but he is solid all the way around. He wont hurt you in ANY category and will help you(at least a little) in almost all of them. He helps a LOT in Avg and runs. Chances are he is around in most drafts till the final 2-4 rounds and never goes in an auction league for more than $4-5 bucks. EVERYONe knows to take pujols,beltran and the like in the first couple of rounds. Those players dont win championships. Its the late round gems that you get the most value for that do that.

Yeah underrated in real baseball, not so much in fantasy (cuz he cant help you a whole lot). Great defense too.
