AFL - HOW GOOD OF AN INDICATOR???

Postby coleminer » Tue Nov 01, 2005 4:05 pm

In general, both for keepers and redrafts, how much weight do you put in Arizona Fall League numbers? Has it always been weighted towards hitters? I am starting some research, but figured some of the Cafe experts could assist.

Specifically, Alex Gordon. Started out slow, finally hit his 1st HR, but has no other professional history to use (college and Team USA provide some indicators). Where does everyone see him playing -1B, 3B??? I thought he was the reason Butler was moved to the OF!!! Thanks.

Alex Gordon: Individual Stats (Batting)
Team From To Surprise Scorpions 10/15 10/31
G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI TB BB SO SB CS OBP SLG AVG
9 28 8 9 2 0 1 4 14 6 6 0 0 .441 .500 .321

John Sickels did an article on this exact subject a couple weeks ago

http://www.minorleagueball.com/story/20 ... /135110/01

its pretty good

i think Gordon will be fine and will probly be at 3b next year. the Royals originally had Justin Huber going to the AFL as a 1B, but switched to Gordon to get him ab's .. and probly just to see how he is at 1st in case of anything.. the AFL team already had a 3B, Travis Hanson, who'd s pretty good fielding 3B.. im sure KC would play Gordon at 3B if they could

anyone notice Joel Guzman playing 1B in the AFL? does this hurt his projection if this move is permanent?
