WHY?

Postby klvrdude » Sat Jan 28, 2006 10:18 pm

I don't know why people are down on Freel? Yes he was injured for a bit last year, but its not like he's Griffey. As for his playing time, I'd be more worried about court dates then open positions, especially if they trade Kearns for some pitching.

Also, what's with the Ol. Perez rebirth? It seems like people are expecting him to return to 2004 form as if he has a track record. Most people who look at the sabermetrics will tell you that 2004 was an anomoly not the norm.

I forgot about Holliday, good call Short. You could probably add Barmes and Helton to your potential deals list. Barmes got hurt "carrying dear meat" and Helton definately had an off year.

Weeks, Hardy(for Deep/NL leagues), Sheets


Weeks played the 2nd half with an injured thumb that was so bad he was dropping his bat after some swings. Hardy's shoulder wasn't full strength and his hitting was just terrible in the first half, he had the 2nd highest OPS of all NL SS's in the second half. Sheets missed a lot of time and his stats were inflated because he couldn't throw his curve ball(his best pitch) for a full month.

Schilling
Beltran
Rolen (still a touch concerned)
Thome

definitely Hunter. I think some folks will forget he was injured and let him slip big in drafts this year. Twins seem to be forgotten often. Which is fine with me. I'll pick 'em up late.

Don't forget about Rocco Baldelli, he was an up and coming stud before last year's TJ surgery

And Drew, well he's always injured.

Well, Drew's injury was not actually a chronic injury (like his former hamstring and back problems) instead I think he broke his wrist when he got hit by a pitch... this is the kind of freak injury that can get a player unjustly knocked down in the rankings...
Same with Halladay, I seem to remember his leg injury being a freak injury, and any injury to a pitcher that does not involve the elbow isn't all that bad...

Drew (HR, RBI, RATIO, AVG.)
Magglio Ordonez (same)
Baldelli (Combo player, not a good Ratio though)

Three guys that can help you in many categories, pitchers are too unpredictable based on year in and year out performance (for the most part).
