Brad Wilkerson on pace for 200 plus K's

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby DABegley » Fri Jun 09, 2006 2:13 pm

The whole discussion revolves around 2 things;

1. Does your league count Ks?

2. Do you have a strong average team?

If your league counts Ks you can't afford Wilkerson, conversation over.

If not and you have a strong enough average to eat his potential .250 average for the year, he is a must have. He will score 110+ runs, hit 25-35 HRs and a decent RBI total. He also qualifies at 1B, LF, CF and RF if your league has those spots. He's a scoring machine with good power that backs up 4 spots, can't beat that with a stick.

He's always k'd tons, but never quite this much.

Atleast he has been hitting some hrs lately.

I dropped him in my 14 teamer a week or two into the season after drafting him later on. We count K's and anything he brought to the table with HR/RBI wouldn't be worth me taking on his K's and AVG.

Yah, a lot of K's. I think starting him at leadoff at the beginning of the year had something to do with it (too much pressure?), but he's been hacking!!! But I like the pace of 35 homers, 100 runs and 90 rbi's.

As DABegley put it, it's all about if your league counts K's. My league doesn't, it's a points league that doesn't take away with K's. Actually it favors homers, which is nice! I just picked the guy up with Pujols' injury, so I can't complain too much.

It would be nice if he didn't K so much though! :-o

he always strikes out a ton(not this much) but always had more walks than this too. A good year for Wilkie is .265/.380/.480? with about 30-35 dingers

but he just stopped walking...

.332 OBP is hardly horrible

Actually, he's hit 30 hrs just once. His next best year was 2003 when he had 20.

You are right though, he is walking much less, and striking out more. He may be pressing and trying to do too much.

Yea, he's already exceeded his total from last year in RFK. Imagine if he was still there and not Texas, his numbers would be terrible.
