Gathright????

Postby somervillesoxfan » Sat Apr 15, 2006 1:33 pm

So what do we think of this kid???? Is it worth hanging onto him in a deep league? Is he ever going to hit and then start to steal bases or what?? I thihnk that they should give him a shot at the leadoff role. Would you dump him for Kearns or R. Sanders??

I'd dump him for both those guys since both of them are better at baseball than Gathright is

I would dump him as well for those guys. He has to get on base first. You can't steal first unfortunately.

He has gotten on base, with a .333 OBP. It's not an amazing OBP, but it was good enough for Crawford and Pierre last year. He has had the misfortune of being blocked on the basepaths on a good number of these occasions, and he of course sees fewer at-bats batting ninth. (And on a side note, I wouldn't be all that upset if I never heard the "you can't steal first" cliche for the rest of my life. ;-) )

Well get used to hearing that phase when Gathrights name comes up. Another one that comes up when Gathrights name is mentioned is. "He makes to many right hand turns whens he gets to first base".
