Victorino is running

Postby deutschland » Thu Apr 19, 2007 1:16 pm

The hype about Victorino running more this year is looking to be real. He stole his 4th base today and seems to be entrenched in that #2 spot in the Phillies order. Just an FYI for teams looking for some speed. He might still be available in a lot of leagues.

That'd be silly. Both are going to be productive players this year. If you're in a standard Yahoo! league, there's likely room on your roster for both, especially with KJ's 2B eligibility. ;-D

Yah, i may try and find a way to have both... its a deep 17team 6x5 (ops counts), in leagues this deep sb's are hard to come by

I worry about the phillie's though, since they havent been doing much

You're thinking of dropping Kelly Johnson in a 17-team OPS league? 8-o I was suggesting keeping him under the assumption that it was a 12-team league that didn't count his really good walk rate. :-) Seriously, they should both be valuable, although Victorino's likely won't have an OPS over .800.

He already has 10 walks this season in 45 at bats as opposed to 24 walks in 415 at bats last season.

If he hits .280 - .305, like I think he will, and can continue to draw walks at a good pace he can be very valuable for runs, stolen bases and average. Of course that's assuming that Utley and Howard drive in ANYTHING for the rest of the season.

agreed. keep kelly johnson over victorino since its an OPS league, that along with his 2b eligibility will make him the more valuable player.

both will have value to you, but if you can only have one, go johnson. unless you really need the SB.

oh and i hope victorino keeps it up, he doesnt really have a good SB %. i decided to stick with him over duffy as my SB sleeper.

Hmm, Victorino is batting LEADOFF tonight. Already added his fifth stolen base and a run.

It's time for everyone to pay attention now. That Phillies lineup is too good to not put it together at some point, and the Flyin' Hawaiian looks like he's going to be right in the middle of it.

Oh yeah! If he bats lead off...damn we could see 120 runs. He could be a mini Sizemore. With Rollins, Utley, Howard, and Rowand STACKED behind him. Boy oh boy...
