Kenji Johjima SEA or Ramon Hernandez BAL???

Postby JimBaker » Thu Feb 16, 2006 11:41 am

I'm playing a salary based game. (I'd hardly call it a league because everyone can have the same players.)

League Scoring
Single = 1
Double = 2
Triple = 3
Home Run = 4
Stolen Base = 2
Walk = 1

The lowest valued player is 1.00 and the highest is A-Rod at 3.87.

Kenji Johjima SEA is 1.10
Ramon Hernandez BAL is 1.52

I already have Joe Mauer 1.71 and Victor Martinez 1.94.

Kenji Johjima SEA has 9, 7 game weeks and Ramon Hernandez BAL has 8, 7 weeks.

I'm leaning toward Johjima, but I'm high on Hernandez. If Hernandez stays healthy he could put up Javy-Lopez-like numbers.

Who would you choose? Especially considering the ball parks.

Here's a general rundown of Japanese imports. Ichiro came, saw, hit a lot of baseballs. But he is *Ichiro* and if the absolute best from Japan didn't do well it'd have been a shocker. Hideki Matsui was also supposed to be one of the best, and though it took him a year to warm up to American baseball, he's doing much better. Sasaki was great for a few years, but pitching usually works well until batters figure you out. Sasaki didn't bomb, but it has happened to others. And then of course, Kaz Matsui has been an absolute dud.

Johjima isn't Ichiro, nor is he Hideki, nor does he pitch. As it has been mentioned before, go with the sure thing in a decent lineup. Ramon Hernandez is your man.

Ramon easily but I don't understand the hype around this Japanese?

In my dynasty league he's getting about the same money as Bengie Molina and a long term contract.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

No Nomo reference? :-D

Anyone have a decent way to translate his Japanese stats to MLB?

Ramon is going to have a great year this year IMO so this isn't even close.

I think the Hardball times did something last month.
PECOTA's 50% has him at 286/347/420. I think he'll show a bit more power than they have him at.

Anyway, I would take Hernandez straight up over Johjima, but Johjima could end up being a better value pick.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.
