Crosby's Lineup Spot

Postby blibros » Sat Mar 18, 2006 9:48 pm

He spent most of last year batting 3rd. If Kendall drops down to the bottom, as he should, that could happen again, with Ellis and Kotsay in front. Anyone have the latest on this or strong opinions about what will happen.

I'd think he probably bats in the 3-hole with Chavy and the Big Hurt behind him and probably Kotsay and Ellis/Bradley in front.

What kind of numbers would you expect from him in the 3 hole.

I'm hoping...

Postby smith1051 » Sun Mar 19, 2006 1:05 am

that he get something like this...

.270/90/25/80/5

However it all depends on if he can stay healthy since he goes balls out and has been injury prone so far in his career

Barmes will probably hit for a better average and more SB's (we don't run much).

Depending on your situation I'd draft Crosby before Barmes but you should be able get Barmes later on as a sleeper (in my drafts at least).

I have Barmes, traded for Crosby. I'm thinking of playing Barms at home and Crosby on the road. Maybe that way I get a SS with 20+ HR, 90 R, 285 Avg. Thoughts on a platoon. Do people do this?

I see Crosby out of the 5th hole more. I can't see the A's batting Thomas anywhere other than the 4th hole, except maybe 3rd, but I doubt that. So that would put Chavvy in the 3 hole and knock Crosby to 5th. Of course if (when) Thomas gets injured, Crosby will most likely move up to the 3 spot.
