Postby kdawg » Mon Dec 29, 2003 1:32 pm

What is the census on Rocco Baldelli? He surprised very much on his production last year. I am afriad he is going to have a sophmore slump. What are expectations this year?

Avg .260 or .300
R 70 or 90
HR 10 or 20
RBI 65 or 85
sb 25 or 35

Color me dubious.

I see a guy with absolutely no eye and is getting by on pure talent. I believe he won't see a strike all season and end up back in the minors for a stretch and will put up poor numbers. Crawford, though, I like a lot.

I agree with Erboes, Crawfords production should be really good next year. Look for a Juan Piere type season out of Crawford. Baldelli will not go back to the minors but look for his numbers to falter a fair bit.
Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can succeed three times out of ten and be considered a good performer.

I'd take talent over an "eye". He will only get better the more pitchers he faces.

crawford is only good for Sbs. He's a poor man's Pierre.
I see .275-10-85-60 with 50 sbs

I don't like how Baldelli slipped in the second half, which tells me the pitchers adjusted to him. With Crawford, even though he's undisciplined as well, did make the adjustment to what the pitchers were throwing him and had a very nice second half. I really don't see anything more from Baldelli than a .260 hitter, but Crawford uses his speed better and can annually hit .300. Baldelli will hit more homers but not nearly as many stolen bases. I think Crawford is the clear choice, but that is just my humble and meek opinion.

A poor man's Pierre who hits 10 HR's and 85 RBI's? Must be one of them offensively productive poor man's Pierre's. ;-)
