Bill Hall?

Postby chinch sacs » Wed Mar 01, 2006 12:01 am

I know you guys have talked about him alittle bit, but my question is not about playing time.

In the league I am in we have 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CI and MI and I want him to be my ultra-sub.

I play in a 12 team league with all those spots, do you think I can get him in a reasonable round like 22, or is someone going to draft him as a starter at one of those positions?

Is anyone drafting Hall as a starter? I think he will get like 350 ABs this year, but with that few can't be a starter on my team...

I wou;dn't draft him at all unless ur on the computer all the time and can see starting lineups so you can make daily adjustments.

I wouldn't draft Hall this year but if you did I'd wait until the very last round of your draft. I had Hall and Figgins on my team last year and their position flexibility was gold for me. There's always a chance that one of Weeks, Hardy or Koskie will go down and he could get significant playing time. However, without assurances that he will be in the lineup on a day to day basis, taking him in the last round of a draft would be the most aggressive thing I would do.

I doubt he'll get drafted unless you're in a deep league.

If you can follow the lineups before games and put him in the days he happens to play he'll be a good value with one of your last picks. He'll likely play against lefties a lot and there are a lot of lefties in that division so he should get a decent number of AB's.

I don't think he'll be around that late, R-22. His position eligibility and his stat line from last season will make someone in the league take him before then.

This is what I was thinking...

And come on, Koskie can't stay healthy and productive all year can he? :-?

I laid my somewhat detailed thoughts out on this thread just a few days ago--

He won't make it to 22, you'd be more likely to snag him around 17 or 18. He will get just as many AB's as Hardy and Koskie.
