I was damn close to dropping this guy eariler in the season. I had a bunch of guys on the DL, and was hurting for roster spots.

Glad i held onto him. ;-D

We had a nice little argument at the beginning of the season about this (Yoda and I). I said VMart's numbers wouldn't improve. Here is the actual prediction.

I'd be surprised if he repeats last years numbers. I think .280, 20 homeruns, 85 rbi are realistic numbers.


Right now he's at .295, 18, 63 so I wasn't too far off. He'll probably finish the year at .290-.305 with 23 homeruns and 85 rbi.

Either way, he did pick up the pace in this second half and I am pleased. :-)

By the way, instead of using code, I suggest you put the statistics in this format, although without the spaces:

< p r e >
Statistics Here
< / p r e >

Looks like this:

<pre>
G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB CS AVG OBP SLG OPS
39 146 27 60 9 0 9 28 17 20 0 0 .411 .470 .658 1.127
</pre>

Actually he is on pace for more like 25 HR with a near .300 AVG. I'd consider that an improvement from last year.

Well, if you wanna get technical, his runs and RBI will be lower at the end of this season than they were last season. Stolen bases were never a factor with VMart so he didn't really improve fantasy-wise. Did he get worse? No. Better? No.

Well let's be fair. He'll have more H, HR, better AVG. RBI and R will be down slightly. Since he's twice the hitter he was in the first half and if he stays relatively within his pace, he will have better numbers pretty much all across the board.

vmart has been awesome since the firing of eddie murray as the indians hitting coach.... but the whole indians team has picked it up offensively since then.... :-? but still 20+ homers and 80 rbis out of your catcher is not a bad pickup,,, now lets hope next year he puts a whole year together instead of just 3 months.....
