Curtis Granderson under the radar

Postby acsguitar » Wed Mar 22, 2006 12:40 pm

This kid seems to be flying way way way under the radar.

He did pretty well last year in limited action with

8 hr's and 20 Rbi's in only 162 AB's He only had 1 SB but now he has 5 in ST without getting thrown out.

This ST he also has 4 hr's

I'm projecting

.290 Avg 24 hr's 25 sb's 80 rbi's

Not a bad line for a backup of'er in my opinion

I took him in the 17th round of a 13 team league.

Any insite on this kid
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Saw him play in about 5 games last year (I'm in DET). Impressive. He has hit at every level and expectations are high. I think what you are describing in terms of possible production would send the Tigers GM (and me as a Tigers fan) into fits of glee. They are the high end of the spectrum.

Most predictions I see have been .275-.300, 15-20 HRs (Comerica is a HUGE park) 15-20SBs. He's very solid contrbutor on all fronts, outstanding in none. A well-balanced player.

But I hope you are right -- I like the optimism. ;-D

I got him late in a draft as well. I think your predictions for steals are about right, but HR's might be a bit high.

I've got him down for: .280, 18 HR's, 25 SB's, 65 RBI, 85 Runs

It all depends on where he hits in the lineup and if he plays the entire year.

I'm going to assume he will hit leadoff, which is the assumption I used to project those numbers. That's why I have only 65 RBI as opposed to the 85 runs.

Ive grabbed him in every league this year. If he goes 20/20, I'll be happy and my expectation will be met.

I really like him, can't see why he's slipping so far in drafts. 20/20+ potential is there, 15/15 seems a lock. He has a good chance to hit leadoff and is aggressive on the bases. I just took him 16.3. :-o

looking at some of these projection for him .. that is first 4 rounds material. :-o

I think you guys are a tad optomistic



I think I've got the most conservative projections here:

If he gets the PT, where do you think I'm too high?

Yes you do .. a couple people had him going 20/20 and 25/25 .. :-o


I won't post my full line since he is on the board in one of my cafe auctions right now .. but playing time dependent
.270 15hr 8-10sb..
thats about what I would expect this season.

He could be a nice keeper, but looking at some of the lines posted, that was first four rounds material. He is not all that

So once he comes off the board in your auction, you'll post what you "actually" project him out to?

Something closer to .275, 18 HR's, 15 SB's???
