scott has 10R, 3HR, 13RBI, 0SB, .430 in the past month, but there are plenty of players who are putting up more R,HR,RBI,SB with fewer hits on my waiver wire.
my take is he's not really worth it unless you're looking for avg. even then at this point in the season, the avg is hard to bring up.
I think the lack of peripheral statistics has alot to do with the Astros weak offense in general....Anytime you have guys like Ausmus, Everett, and Lane hitting behind you, you're not going to score many runs...Look at Berkman. he has a ton of RBI and a great OBP, but only 60 some runs scored.
They have moved Scott behind Berkman now and in front of Huff...So that's definantly a good thing. I have a good feeling about him the rest of the way.
