He's hitting the ball well, getting on base, and the offense behind him is driving him in. Expect good things this year and next and expect people like chadlincoln to continue to be unimpressed for no reason.
When did this thread become all about getting me to like him? For no reason? Have you seen his stats so far? Where did he go this year? 3rd round? He's a great SB guy and gets runs, but so far this year his average hurts. He is playing better now, but I'm still staying away.

There are plenty of higher picks with lower averages, your not for the average with figgins, you want runs and sbs. Anything near 275 is great for average with him.

I said I won't draft him until then. It's my opinion. Deal with it. You all can keep him on your team. He won't be on mine.

There is no need to resort to name calling. :-t

Chad is entitled to his own opinion, and I respect it. I might not agree with it, but I do respect it. And everyone else should as well.

He will finish with 60-70 SBs, a .280-.290 avg, and over 100 runs...He also gives you great position flexibility. So unless you don't care about steals or position scarcity, he has got to be a round 4 or round 5 guy.

If a player starts at 2nd base 5 games this year, he has 2nd base eligibility for this year. But I don't think that is enough to give him eligibility next year. I can't find it anywhere, but that is what I seem to remember. Someone please correct me if I am wrong, or confirm if I am correct. Thanks.

As long as he still qualifies at 2nd base, I'll happily take him in the 3rd round next year just like I happily took him in the 3rd round this year.
