Glaus is playing SS tonight

Postby gbill2004 » Fri May 26, 2006 8:05 pm

Troy Glaus is playing SS and Hillenbrand is playing 3B, and Hinske is DH. If Glaus accepts this new role as SS, it would address teh Jays infield problems. I like Richardi's "thinking out of the box" approach.

Not to mention creating a VERY valuable shortstop for fantasy purposes! ;-D

Interesting move. Glaus moves really well for a man of his size. He was never Rolen, but then again who is?

Glaus is actually a natural shortstop (i think that was his actual college position), and was drafted as an SS. When asked about it, it's still his favorite position. So it's not really that big of a jump.

ummmm 3 idiotic posts in this thread......


1. it was riccardi's idea, it was john gibbons (the manager)

2. who the hell cares about errors from a fantasy standpoint.

3. yes it is a big jump. ss and 3b are drastically different in the major leagues. just because he LIKES playing there, doesnt make it effective.

Glaus played SS at UCLA so the learning curve isn't as steep, but he will not cover ground like Jeter. If they choose to keep him there it could get interesting.

Think of it like ARod moving back to SS.

Ok...
1. who cares who's idea it was, Glaus is still playing short.

2. Some leagues have errors as a stat, you never know.

3. The man spent all his life up until the majors playing short...and even then he's played 10 games at SS in the major league level. Sure that's a limited amount of putouts, but so far no errors. I'm just saying, he's real comfortable down there -- and comfort level is more than half the battle...so again...I think it's not that big of a jump for a guy who has experience at the position...especially if it's just from time to time. heck, all we care about is the eligibility.

1. obviously the original poster since he included who's thinking he thought was genius.

2. stupid leagues have errors as a category.

3. ok, well ive pitched my whole life and im really comfortable throwing from the hill. little league, hs, and college. Do i see anyone else saying its a good idea for me to do it in the majors? of course not. also the fact he played 10 games there is kind of a false way of looking at it considering it was only 12 innings, mostly late in games, when im fairly sure the game wasnt on the line. im not saying its a bad idea nor do i not see the logic behind it, but the points made in this thread had no intellectual or intelligent thought behind them whatsoever.
