I think Mench will be pretty much full time, especially if he keeps on hitting. Matthews, Jr. being out doesn't hurt either.

I thought when Adrian Gonzalez got sent down that Mench went full time, has he not been lately?

Yes, except when he sat out a few games after getting hit by a pitch on his elbow !+)

Yep, left field belongs to Mench. ;-D I wouldn't worry about playing time at all until Matthews comes back, and even then, his playing time should be just fine. ;-D

He Madison, As a respected Guru and a Rangers fan here at the Cafe, what are your projections for Mench from here on out?

I gambled on him the 9th round in a 12 team league. He has been hit or miss producing in binges over 2-3 game periods while being ice cold, hurt, or benched fairly frequently during other spells.

Will he stay healthy and consistent in their lineup?

IMHO, he is one of the most enigmatic fantasy players to project production or assess trade value with in baseball so far this year.

Cant sell him low. Wont be able to sell him high. Too much potential to drop. Off and on with his health and power #'s making him a risky weekly start.

HELP PLEASE!!!! :-D

What is your take on him Madison?

Mench is pretty much the full time starter now so Im guessing he'll only sit once every two series, which is good enough to start. You may want to think about just starting him at home if you have the luxury to do so.

I drafted him myself in a couple of leagues figuring on .285-30-95 range with a solid upside of possibly 35 homers 105 rbi's with a .290-.295 average. Not bad as a 3rd OF or utility player.

Health is always a concern for Mench though. He seems to be frequently injured. So far, so good this year. :-o *knock on wood*

The rest of the way out? Wouldn't be surprised to see his average stay in the mid .280's with another 22 homers and 75 more rbi or so. He'd wind up around what I expected him to do for the year. Granted, it's all based on Showalter sticking to letting Mench play every day and I think Buck will do that.

There's a nice long 9 game homestand coming up too. Worst case is you pick him up for those games and cut (or bench) him if he stinks it up on the homestand. ;-) Little risk, pretty decent reward player.

Hope that helps some. :-)

I agree with you completly on Mench. 3/4 days ago I was about to drop him because I needed some starting pitching because of so many injuries, but I held onto him just long enough.

I actually just traded Mench after his 2 hr game. Packaged him with a medicore SP to get Vazquez. I couldn't be more happy about the trade.

I recently picked up Nixon off the WW so he became expendible. I feel its much easier to spot start Nixon in my 3rd OF spot then Mench; just sit him against lefties.

With Thome coming back from the DL he'll be my everyday DL with a little Nick Johnson here and there.

So I no longer needed Mench.
