Mike Sweeney.....bounceback?

Postby Tribe-Fan » Thu Dec 18, 2003 11:07 pm

Consider Mike Sweeney. He's 30, not quite prime years but not over the hill especially in this day and age. Injury prone? To say the least. 483 and 392 AB's the last 2 years.

But, a closer look at his 1st half numbers last year, numbers he compiled before he got hurt, say that this guy has plently left in the tank.

1st half numbers last year:
215 AB's
40 Runs
12 HR
50 RBI
.321 BA
.443 OB
.982 OPS

Pretty damn strong numbers in really less then a full 1/2 season AB's. Sure he is an injury risk, but if he can get back to a healthy 500-600 AB's I think he may be able to give us another solid season or two. Add in the fact that both Chicago and Minnesota seem to be cleaning house, and this may be the only chance KC has at winning a division. If they are in the hunt, they hold Beltran for that title run.

Opinions?

i like sweeney. he always keeps your BA up and its hilarious to see him bloody mad. :-b
he did well, as did his team in the first half. although ibanez is gone, i think a bounceback isnt too much to ask or hope for

around 30 is usually where a hitter has his best year. I think that he can bounce back..

Don't forget that Mikey plays in one of the best hitters parks in the bigs! Only a couple steps down from Coors, gotta like Royals hitters.

He should put up good numbers while he's healthy. Now how many at bats that will be is the question. :-?

For the last 2 year we've all held our breath with Sweeney. This year will be no different.
