Mike Cameron - pick em up

Postby mcliffy2 » Sun Jul 23, 2006 12:14 am

Hit a HR and had 2 SB tonight.

Last 30 days:
20 R, 8 HR, 13 RBI, 4 SB

Season:
55 R, 13 HR, 39 RBI, 16 SB

Considering he missed the 3 weeks of the season those are some damn good numbers (probably about 30/30, similar to Sizemore if it weren't for the injury)....I know he is streaky, but he has not cooled off for about 6 weeks now, I've been loving it.

Guess it shouldn't be too much of a surprise consider his last 6 healthy seasons he was in the 25-35 HR, 20-30 SB range, but it seems like everyone just forgot about him after that collision.

If you can live with the average average (I can), I agree ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D

I picked him up about 4 weeks ago and have been very happy since. People shy away b/c of his average...I say thanks.

I'd pick him up for Winn definitely...Who doesn't need 3 HR and 2 SB in a week?

Uh yea...look at his numbers...everybody forgot about him...he was a perrenial 30/20 guy with 100 RBIs for like 6 years running...and appears to back in form, season line now (having missed the first 3 weeks):

59 R, 15 HR, 44 RBI, 17 SB, .350 OBP (we use OBP, know his BA hurts a little)...if he stays hot he could hit 30/30, although I'd say 25/25 is more realistic, but who can complain about getting a 25/25 guy off waivers?? B-)
