whose stock went up on opening day?

Postby macman8494 » Tue Apr 03, 2007 12:18 am

I say Miguel Cabrera, Felix Hernandez, Hanley Ramirez, and Ian Kinsler

I wouldn't say MCab's stock went up, everyone should already know he's a top tier performer.

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.

I agree with Felix.
We already know Sheets is great. Its just a matter of whether or not he will still be pitching in a couple months.
MCab and Hanley were already rated high. MCab is already a first rounder.
I'd add BJ Upton and Dan Wheeler

I'm liking Felix (got him in both leagues damn I'm good). I ALSO like Kinsler's performance in the 9 spot. i'm sure he'll start to hit higher if they don't produce in the first week or so... Another name to look out for is Rocco Baldelli (hitting 3rd in a sky-for-potential lineup). He CAN be the complete fantasy player.

It's a little early for Upton to consider (for me anyway... he doesn't have all of the eligibility he should have in Yahoo! leagues), as we should see him string togther a consistent couple of weeks or so.

How about Salomon Torres?!?! Dude's got composure. I know it's too early to hehehaha to all of the Torres haters, but I'm just glad he closed out an extra inning game to the Houston Awfuls.

I liked Morneau's performance too (brought a little chuckle when I saw the box score). In Yahoo! leagues, his ADP was around 27 or something. It's looking like if he continues CLOSE-TO his first day, he'll be a good investment for trade opportunites.

Regarding the Lidge comment, it's just a matter of time. Garner has had way too much faith in this guy (FIVE+ ERA LAST YEAR) for too long. I've always loved his ability to strike guys out, but I guess the Pujols HR did change his mentality closing. However, I don't like the idea of Wheeler getting the Save Opp's. It might end up being the same kinda shaky bullpen situations like StL, Cleveland, Cincy, and TB. I think Houston will be the team to trade (if not Boston) for a guy like Turnbow down the future, so I guess stay on the look out for that.

I never like gauging seasons on the first week, let alone the first day, but the afforementioned are my opinions on who moved their stocks up.

I agree with the above. It was ONE whole day. There's still 161 games left so it's way too soon to start making any predictions about how the season will go (outside of maybe how bad Lidge is going to be).

Right. No way Renteria and Dunn keep up the pace. (maybe 200 homers for Rent 250 for Dunn?) ;-)

Looking at Renteria, he may have already hit 10% of his homers for the year.

Stock as in trade value might be altered the first day or week, but hold on to your projections for a bit longer before starting to adjust based on performance.

(Except in the case where a guy is suddenly earning a lot of PT.)
Be excellent to each other.
