Alex Gonzalez and Alex Cintron owners

Postby BoSox Fan » Thu Jul 03, 2003 11:56 am

Both of these guys were off to fast starts and after a lot of talk about a "Breakout Season", I've watched their averages steadily drop to .300. They still sport decent .884 and .847 OPS for shortstops but is this the beginning of the end? Are they the real deal or have the pitchers found a hole in their swing? Thoughts?

I traded A Gonz for Tejada about 2 weeks ago when gonz was hitting .325. I see him finishing the year at about .260. Total fluke.

I'm hanging onto Cintron since I just got him less than a week ago in 2 leagues. Being eligible at 2b, 3b, and ss makes him worth having patience for and he it isn't like hasn't gotten any hits. Obviously nobody was interested in him in my leagues or I wouldn't have been able to get him in the first place, so I have no hopes to trade him. I'll just drop him if someone more interesting shows up on the waiver wire.

oh, and that Tejada trade? INSANE!

Tejada for Agon. That is funny and disturbing. It makes me happy knowing that I will never see a trade like that in any of my leagues.

Don't we just all dream about trades like that coming along??! For most of us that dream probably won't come true. My dream is still trading Alex Cintron for Alex Rodriguez. :-)

Beleive it or not, the guy who did it is a pretty tough owner who is currently in 4th (im in 5th). He usually gets the better end of all his trades, but i guess he was just fed up with tejada. I should mention that i did throw in looper, and he needed saves.

Hes not a fluke. His ops right now is 884, compared to his career 656. No one expected him to remain at 330. His career average is 240. If he ends up at 280, thats quite a jump. Hes made himself into a decent player, and at 26, hes still pre peak. He could be a annual 20-80 270 ss, not too shabby.

Gonzalez is a streaky player. He usually has one bad game then gets frustrated with himself and goes into a bad slump. The Fish have had Ozzie Guillen on him making sure he keeps his head up and so far it seems to be working. I wouldn't call him a fluke, he has looked like a stud all year, but in the last few games I've noticed that usual frustrated and impatient look. Hopefully he gets it under control and stays above .300 for the rest of the year.

Does it matter that Cintron is batting third whereas Gonzalez is batting towards the bottom of the Marlin's order?
