Well, I was talking realy baseball. But for fantasy purposes, Willingham has certainly been the best NL option thus far.

3-2 top 9th and jeffy goes down swinging.
After he hit 2 HRs earlier in the game? :-?


He only had 1 and he still has little fantasy value as long as he goes 1 for 4. Dunn is the only player who can go 1-4 consistantly and still contribute in fantasy.

You're right. For some reason, the LaRoche homer got attributed to Franoeur in my head.

But I'll take 1-4 with a HR every night. It seems like you're saying that's a bad line? :-?

he CAN hit bad pitches, that's the problem with it.

Yeah. The problem is, he still swings at the REALLY bad ones! :-D

the 1 foot off the plate, low and away in the dirt type balls. It's really annoying.

He is not. I would take 162 HRs, but that isn't rational. He will end up with 25 HR tops, and I won't take a 250 hitter with 25 HRs. Sadly, he isn't even going 1-4 everyday and is hitting .225, which really gives him zero value.

He'll hit .270 with 30 HRs by the end of the year if he's not sent down and is playing everyday, watch it.

I drafted him late, and I dropped his butt shortly there after.

Yeah, thats around where I had him at the start of the year. But with his average where it is now, he'll basically have to hit .290 the rest of the way to finish around .270. I think .250-.260 at the end of the year is a bit more realistic at this point.

Zito is God wrote:I can't see Francouer NOT succeed. He will be the Braves future, will likely put up .280, 80 R, 25 HRs, 95 RBIs after this year is over and the sophmore slump is done with.

He was called up too early, every Brave fan knows it. He needed one more year but management got impatient and needed help NOW. Kelly Johnson was the answer here, they should have kept Francouer down and let langerhans and kelly Johnson man the field (I realize Johnson is injured now, I meant when he returns). Francouer really needs at least 3-4 more minors months of seasoning.


________________________________________________________
I think this quote really sums it up for this year. When he gets a little more selective at the plate, he'll start having success again. Just a question of when that occurs, later this year or next. Braves must be working with him on being more selective. Once he figures it out, he'll be a good pickup. He is being dropped on a lot of leagues right now.
