Aaron Rowand- you might want to get him now

Postby BostonBK7 » Tue Apr 25, 2006 10:08 pm

He's due for some RBIs and an easy schedule coming up only makes it better. Colorado, Pitts, Florida...

I'm gonna call it and say that Rowand is going to have posted some big numbers by next weeks end.

Not saying you're wrong but he did just get bumped from the #2 spot.

Yes, however batting behind Rollins, Utley, Abreu, Burell and Howard has got to give him many more RBI oppurtunites.

I don't think he'd be available in most competative leagues.

Not available in FA for certain, however after a down year in 2005 with owners being majorly disappointed with him, and a slow start now, I imagine patience is running thin with some owners, definitely. If he can be had at a reasonable price, he's well worth shooting for. ;-D

I made this point in another post, but I think Rowand's value increases with his move to the 6-hole in the lineup. Yes, his runs scored are going to decline, but as noted above, his RBI's will almost certainly improve.

I also think that he will have more SB opportunities hitting 6th. When he was hitting #2, the SB opps are limited because you really don't want him stealing 2nd with Abreu up (because of the hole in the infield). I think in the 6-hole there's no reason for him not to attempt more steals.

Just thought this would be an appropriate time to bump up this thread given Rowand's performance since my original post.

What a clutch prediction. So who listened to me?

Picked him up 4 days ago off FA (someone had drafted him, but dropped him). ;-D
