Not to pick a Brewer but, Bill Hall might be a decent option in late late rounds.

I have him at $10 as well. And, I expect to get him at a discount as well :-D . Great minds think alike.

Greene is at $6 in my league, and I don't see him being tossed back...

I'd keep him for $6. ;-D Not sure about $10 though.

I can't recall the name, it's in an article here in the cafe I think, but there is another SS who may be coming from Japan in addition to Matsui. Apparently his numbers are about as good and he will not cost nearly as much.


All i know is Seung Yeop Lee, the guy who broke Oh's single-season HR record. he's a 1B though.

Best SS

Postby HalosFan » Thu Nov 06, 2003 8:08 pm

Arod will always be the best value at Short. Tejada will most likely be overated there for the rest of his career for his ONE great season. Look at Tejada's stats, all years but one are filled with inconsistancy, low avg., poor defense, he's just extremely overated.(I pray the Angels dont sign him, even if they are his 1st choice). Look out for Matsui, Berroa, and Greene. Also, if Amezaga ever gets a chance to play, he could be a huge SB guy. (o)

Tejada will never hit for average, his swing is too big. And he will receive too big a salary, thats for sure. But i disagree on being inconsistent. His last 4 years hes went a minimum of 27 hrs 100 rbis. His mvp year wasn't alot over last year.

02 122 ops+ 116 runs created
03 117 ops+ 100 runs created

His glove is underrated. In 7 years, hes been above league range factor every year. Hes only 27, so he's right at peak now. What you should expect, is a 280 average, 30-35 hrs, 100-110 rbis.
