Kinsler-the man or a fluke?

Postby u_fig_eater » Wed Jun 07, 2006 3:03 pm

Simple question: is Ian Kinsler for real? What do you predict his numbers will be at the end of the season?

He's for real. I had him as my sleeper 2b going into the season, but his injury forced me to cut him. I picked him back up a few days ago though. ;-D

I'm actually in the same boat as jags. Targetted him early and was pleased with the start until he got hurt. I think he will be a solid 2B, but only if he moves up in the lineup. Granted, in deep leagues, he wouldn't be a bad option since Tex is going to score alot of runs, but until he moves to leadoff of #2, I think his fantasy value remains relatively low. Something to keep an eye on though.

In yahoo, where Kinsler is 2b/ss eligible, would you rather start him or Bill Hall at short for the remainder of the season?

Does anyone see him moving up in the order soon? Where did he start the season batting?

he started batting 9th...
I see him maybe moving up to 6-7 but not at the top of the order this season.

only way i see him moving up in the order is if matthews gets injured.
buck likes having speedier guys at the bottom of the lineup....though they dont really use kinsler that way.

but i think buck likes kinsler at 9 and matthews at 1 and youngs not moving from the 2 spot

Kid is a good hitter. Doesn't swing at everything and drives the ball he needs to. He needs to start running. ;-D
