Sportingnews.com opinion on 2B

Postby tomkatt » Wed May 18, 2005 1:38 am

Here's a blurb about Jeff Kent from sportingnews.com:

"Kent, who got off to a terrific start, entered Tuesday night's game in a 1-for-16 slide, dropping his batting average to .287. "It's just a phase hitters go through," Dodgers manager Jim Tracy said. "There's really very little to expound on. The ebb and flow of a six-month period, that's what it boils down to."

Fantasy Source spin: As if on cue, Kent went ahead and banged out three hits and drove in four runs on Tuesday. He's just fine, and he is neck and neck with Alfonso Soriano for the honor of being fantasy's best second baseman through the first six weeks of the season."

UM, CAN YOU SAY BRIAN ROBERTS???? Guess he's not having all that great a year according to these fellas. :-[

Yikes. :-o

Brian Roberts is definitely having a fantastic year so far. Can't believe they didn't mention him in that write up. 8-o

Roberts really came out of the blue but you can't ignore what he is doing. Granted he wont continue this kind of power but you should expect him to finish the season around...

I wouldn't trade Roberts for Kent at this point. Also, depending on how much you value steals, Roberts may end up with better numbers than Soriano.

I wouldn't either and to be honest, I wouldn't trade Barmes for Kent either. I know it sounds crazy but the kid has been a godsend. Also, there's the honor factor of having a diamond in the rough type of player in your lineup. I don't want to sell him out for Kent. Besides, I think Kent is a jerk :-t

Roberts hit another HR last night BTW. Signs of slowing down still nowhere to be found 1/4 through season. Adjust your expectations accordingly.

Total joke he's not mentioned in that article. There are seriously tons of pepole on this forum that could easily get paid to write much better fantasy info. Where does sportingnews get these clownshoes?
