I'm sure you won't...just like I won't forget that Cory "I Hope He Likes Ottawa" Patterson will be a better fantasy player than Granderson.

Cory update: Matos singled in the tie run and scored the winning run in the Oriole game today. Cory got to come in as a defensive replacement in the 9th inning.

At best, Patterson platoons with Matos. I think there's a chance he may lose the starting job in CF before the season starts.


Called that one:

"Luis Matos is expected to be the Orioles' Opening Day center fielder over both Corey Patterson and Nick Markakis.
With the Orioles keeping all of their outfielders, this could get messy. Patterson isn't going to be any good to anyone unless he's playing. Matos probably is the superior player, but he still hardly seem to be in Baltimore's future plans. Maybe they can try to spend the first month building up his trade value, but if they really want to play him, then Markakis should in Triple-A. Apr. 1 - 8:51 pm et"

Jeez GTWMA, you could have a bunch of funny AVs by the end of the year. :-D

If I win you have to include this in your sig, "Corey Patterson is sabermetric gold" :-b


Just FYI, Cory finished ST batting .255 I'll give you a chance to back out now. And given that Cory's now going to lose ABs to both Markakis and Matos, we need a minimum plate appearances. How about 250?


Ok, so if CP doesn't get 250 PA, the bet is off.

Competition for PT could as easily work to light a fire under Patterson as it could bring him down. My gut tells me the recent news will likely improve Patterson's average, so I'm sticking with the bet. (Don't fail me now PECOTA) :-D

lol, you didn't need to make your own thread about it! :-D I was going to respond in the Granderson forum. And remember, I wasn't the one so staunchly supporting Patterson, I was agruing Grandersons speed.

As the post above yours shows, the doors have opened for Granderson and appear to be closing for Patterson and warrick95's bet. (I think you meant the title of the thread to include his name)

Compare that to my more mellow words, supporting Granderson:
If you take playing time out of the picture it seems that Granderson is more capable in the runs and average department, Patterson in steals, with a tie in Power. Granderson is a reasonable bet to provide more fantasy value, but 30+ steals from Corey could change that.

I wasn't calling you out, just trying to make sure you saw it---was trying to be nice and give you an out that I won't be offering warrick95!! :-D

I had a typo there. Patterson finished ST with a .225 batting average. The guy just has too many holes in his swing--even minor league pitchers figured him out, so there's not much of a prayer he's going to survive for long.

So, yeah, bet's off either way if Patterson doesn't get anough PT....which seems to be the direction things are heading.

Granderson gets his first SB of the season. Gets on base via FC.
