Nick Markakis?

What is he slated to bat in the O's lineup? If he's batting in the top half of the order, is a breakout possible for him?

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

He is likely batting third. He'll be very good.

I targeted him in the 12th in my keeper. Me thinks it was a bit too early, but considering how vocal others in my league where about me stealing their target, it seems a lot of people are high on this guy.

Just really a gut feeling but he's a guy I won't be drafting this year. I'm not really excited about 1 good month last year. He wasn't exactly good against the rest of the East last year either..... 226ABs .248avg 6hr


This isn't neccessarily posted to drudge up alot of debate, at least not from me, because I don't really have any big feelings for him either way. Like I said its more of a gut feeling than anything and I wanted to be on record for when he disappoints this year! ;-7

i'm also leaning this way on the debate over him.

I think he'll be pretty good, but nobody to reach for before the 10th round in mixed league drafts. Definetly not as good as Gaylord Funston is blowing him up to be.

If you had done proper research, you'd see his entire 2nd half was good, not just one month. And also consider he was a rookie that never played anything higher than AA before last year. He dropped in my league because everyone was looking at his stats for the whole season last year. You just can't do that with rookies.

was there a reason/excuse for his dismal September? now i'm getting worried having him as my third OF...

should've figured...funston had him over-ranked in the 80s and had marked him for breakout. thats reason enough to stay away!

I think that it's a case of as teams get more experience (not to mention film...) on young players, their ability to shut them down tends to go up. Holes in swings or challenges spotting particular pitches are more apparent after a couple of times around. I liked Markakis ok but not for what he seems to be going for.
