M Izturis:Everyday Player?

Postby StringerBell » Sun Aug 20, 2006 11:24 pm

Will M Izturis play at least 5 out of every 7 games the Angels have left?

I saw he was out of the line-up----but his splits show he hits both Righties and Leftys well.

I need him to be playing!

he gets the occassional day off b/c of a plethora of guys for only a few positions, but i believe he will play 4-5 of every 7 here on it...his numbers are just too good...

Great defensively, but is he offensively consistent enough? I haven't seen it, but I guess its possible.

I guess it depends on your league, but I start him at SS and he has been great! He plays almost everyday.

All I need him for are AVG, SBs and RP (Runs + RBI - HRs).

He`s played 17 games in the last 3 weeks. Even at his semi-full playing time he`s amassed 21 RPS, 3 HRs , a .345 average and 1 SB in that time frame.

Theres only about 40 games left and his output is Twice that of A Gonzalez in the last month. I think I have to bite the bullet,go for Maicer, and drop A Gonz----not good for the future/keeper thing, but I need numbers NOW!---

HRs dont help me anymore this year--besides---Maicer`s got 3 and A Gonz only 1 in the last 3 weeks!

please validate this tuff move for me!

I would like some validation regarding Izturis as well. I dropped Punto for Izturis when Punto was injured but I'm considering picking Punto back up for Izturis after Izturis sat last game. I need SB and average and above all a player that's in the lineup every game!

I always say, if possible, go for the hot hand. And Izturis is indeed hitting right now. Hasn't he been battling a tender hamstring for a week or so?

Yes... when the Angels are playing a lefty, Scioscia definitely wants Wuinlan in the lineup though, so he either plays 3rd or first, depending on the OF. Sometimes Figgy plays 2nd, Kendrick stays at first and Izzy plays 3rd, sometimes Quinlan plays first though.... hard to predict, but versus righties, it's a safe bet Izzy starts.
