Byrnes in the 2 hole?

Postby Titanic Grizzlie » Thu May 19, 2005 12:10 pm

The A's shuffled up the order last night by moving Byrnes into the 2 hole. the first 4 was:

Kotsay
Byrnes
Kendall
Chavez

Do you view this as something that might stick?

If so, It seems like to me Byrnes' value is headed way up considering that after his horrid start he is on many WW right now.

Why would his value go up? He's still not hitting, and this will require him to sacrifice more by moving the runner over when he gets on. Lower's his potential for rbi's, nobody behind him is hitting so he's not going to score much anyway and they don't run. He's not really of any worth in that spot, and not much anywhere else.

Where have you been? In a cave? Let me get you up to speed.....

The A's offense has been on fire lately. Chavez is hitting jacks left and right. And most importantly, to this subject Byrnes over the last 5 games is:

11 for 17

1 HR

6 RBI

7 R


It's people who pass judgemnt on topics like this that always seem to miss the boat. And as someone else posted in another thread, Byrnes bats close to .400 this year against lefties, and he is facing 3 LHP this weekend.

And that brings Byrnes up up to what? A good candidate to be your middle infielder. He's not going to maintain that pace. Chavez has two hits in ten ab's, both of them home runs, not exactly jacking them out right and left. Byrnes has almost no value at the moment. He is a good player in real baseball, but at best, and a not very good best at that, a 5th of in fantasy. Hitting in the two hole, that even takes a drop.
