Gary Matthews Jr.: What gives?

Postby ike301 » Sat Apr 21, 2007 2:57 pm

Any updates on his shaky hittting streak?

Or was last year a fluke....

Any advice?

What motivation if any does Matthews have now? He use to be a part-time player earning part-time money. He's now a full time player earning more than he deserves. Case closed.

I really liked GMJ when he played for texas but the fact is he had a career year, when he had been a career backup outfielder and turned that into a HUGE contract... he was bound to have dropoff.

I never looked at GMJr as a viable fantasy player this year. Last year was closer to a fluke than to the norm in my opinion. I'd temper my expectations if I were you.

GMJ is a valuable real life center fielder because of his defense. Offensively he has had ONE big year. All the rest are very average. Not a great fantasy guy, but good on defense.
