Thoughts on Aramis Ramirez getting hot?

Postby kcs261 » Tue May 27, 2003 10:12 pm

If you haven't noticed, the guy is starting to catch on fire. 4-4 tonight, and he's been hot the last couple of weeks. Is this legit? I am beginning to think it is...Brian Giles back and Ramirez is starting to get some pitches to hit.

Ramirez had a monster season in 2001 and went something like .320-35-120 absolutely out of nowhere. Last year, he injured himself in April charging the mound and was horrible the rest of the year, hitting like .235. It's entirely possible he will return to 2001 form.

You think Ramirez is a better pickup than Koskie? Hinske just got injured for me and I picked up Koskie, but Ramirez is hitting very good as of late. Should I keep Koskie or pick up Ramirez?

I'd grab Ramirez and use him until he cools off and if he starts slumping again, cut him for Koskie.

What about Richard Hidalgo with his health issues (tonsilitis 'sp?')? I could use Hidalgo or Ramirez at the DH position in my unusual customized league. Do I dump Hidalgo for Ramirez? I am leaning towards doing so.

Would you guys consider dropping Blalock for this guy? Just wondering. I'm getting rather annoyed at how he sits out against lefties.

homers?

Postby Machines3 » Wed May 28, 2003 1:34 am

I just picked him up in two leagues as well because i needed a good third baseman and hes been on fire. I think hes going to hit for a good average and get rbi's but he only has 2 homeruns this year, he had 34 2 years ago, do you think hes going to start hitting a lot more this year or not?

hes been shortening his swing, and taking it to the opposite field, so his AVG is going up, but he aint gonna get a lot of hommers this year... here are some #s if you are interested...

in his last 9 games (including Tues)

22/40 ( batting .550) with 5 runs, a HR, and 11 RBIs

...not bad, hope its a sign of whats to come
