All-Stars for the Homestretch!

Postby benjapage » Sat Jun 11, 2005 11:13 pm

if you have the room, now's the time to think about getting that jump on the currently injured all-stars:

baldelli
maggs
nomar


who knows what they'll do on their return, but the ceiling is obviously pretty high. are there any players i'm missing, here? and how would you prioritize those listed? i have listed them according to my expectations of their respective performances.

yeah, yes...

Bonds is the premiere injured player to go after.

1a When will he play at the earliest. 1b Why would he play with SF likely far behind at that time.

He'd play for records; don't think passing Ruth doesn't mean everything to him :-t

My gut feeling says that Bonds has no fantasy impact this season, and possibly does not see the field at all this season.

Then I shouldn't have traded Brian Fuentes and Barry Zito for him?

Nomar= Big question mark. He was ahead of schedule on starting his rehab, so he could be back sooner than expected. I still say August...but the beginning of it.

Rocco= All-Star Break. He's at extended Spring Training right now getting ready for the season. This should be fairly certain. He may not run enough this year to be of much value, though. A lot of his value was tied up in his power/speed (Aaron Rowandlike) and he'll lack the jets this season.

Bonds= Bigger question mark than Nomar. Nobody really knows. It appears like he's finally beginning to make progress on his knee (fingers crossed). Alou even said that he was hopeful that Bonds would DH soon. Personally, I'm hopeful that he'll return in late July or early August. However, that is barring any setbacks, which have been aplenty thus far in his rehab.

Maggs= Took batting practice recently. The original timetable was 8-12 weeks (from mid-April), so it sounds like the All-Star break is a reasonable expectation for him, too.
