Jason Botts...the cafe sleeper???

Postby scr » Wed May 31, 2006 7:59 am

I have not seen much about this guy on the cafe. I looked up his projections on ESPN-they are projecting a .400 avg., 29hr., big rbi's.

Word is that Nevin is done, and Botts gets the DH job.

What do you folks think?

the projections on espn don't really mean much...they are based completely on the pace that he is on right now, he is actually on pace to hit 28.5 Hr's and 85.5 RBI's they just rounded up...i'm not saying that he won't be good i'm just saying you should give him time before you seriously consider getting him

i dont expect him to hit .400 but given consistent ab's 20-25hrs isnt out of the realm of possibilities.

he's going to be platooning dh with nevin for the time being.

What are your "realistic" projections
