When Does DaVanon Play

Postby twinsfan » Sun Jun 15, 2003 1:22 am

I had an open spot on my team, so I decided to pick up DaVanon based on the promising numbers he's put up recently. I'm trying determine when to start him, but I can't figure out the rhyme or reason behind when he plays and when he doesn't. He didn't start tonite, but it looks like him came in and hit a pinch hit home run, of course, on my bench. Can anyone offer up some insight?

If you have Yahoo StatTracker, about 45 min before games, if the guy is in the lineup, you'll see a 0/0 line next to him

Of course, pinch hit HR's still screw you there.

brad fullmer hit a grand slam tonight. Man, those angels are all about miracles. What with DaVannons randomly improved play, Fullmer's great season so far and Spiezo's post-season last year, I'm truly impressed. I love the team.

He's their 4th outfielder, behind Salmon, Anderson and Erstad, so he isn't going to likely get regular at bats or playing time unless someone gets injured. Scioscia has already said that he believes in player loyalty and isn't going to bench Erstad or Salmon just because DaVannon performed well when Erstad was on the shelf. (which makes sense because these guys did win him the world series last year). Since Erstad is now back, you're better off dropping DaVannon for someone that gets regular playing time in a mixed league because he'll just frustrate you.

DaVanon plays in the 8th or 9th inning now that Erstad is healthy. DaVanon isn't worth hanging on to. Sciosia has said he will have to get him some AB's, which will be Salmon, Fullmer, or Spezio sitting to get a little rest on occasion. Most of his AB's will be late inning defensive replacement moves where he steals an AB from Salmon.
