McCann or Napoli for 2nd half?

Postby OT2000 » Wed Jul 05, 2006 12:06 pm

McCann or Napoli for the rest of the season?

I need AVG & RBI's since Varitek just isn't coming around.

McCann easily but watch out for Napoli too. He may not give you a great AVG but he can hit for more power and RBIs.

I'm in the same situation but in a H2H league. I've been going with Napoli the past weeks, but it sucks to see McCann on my bench. I just hope they don't fall off at the same time. Well, I hope they don't fade at all actually but you get what I'm saying.

Just as an FYI the Angels are considering making Napoli the every day #5 hitter (DH'ing on his days off from catching). If that happens I think that tips the scales in favor of Napoli unless your only interest is average.

McCann has thrown up pretty shocking avg. and obp #s, but seems a little light on RBIs. That may jut be a reseult of flukish bad luck that could change at anytime.

I want to see a few more months of Napoli to see how he adjusts to the league's adjustments to him, but what I see now is super impressive. He's got massive power potential, and takes walks, so he's got a great obp.

The reason McCann has so few RBIs is a lack of clutch hitting: As of Wednesday, his batting average with runners in scoring position is .250, or 101 points lower than his overall average. That said, he's young, and I would assume the RBIs will come around. I'd say he's a better pick-up than Napoli.
