Nobody loves comeback veterans (Sosa, Green, Etc)...Why?

Postby benjapage » Wed Apr 25, 2007 3:26 pm

shawn green came into today's game with .342 avg, 10 rbi, 14 r, 3 hr, and a stolen base.

And today, he hit a single and a 3-run double.

no love? no fanfare?

i mean, i get it. he's not a rookie. but do we get extra points for someone's lack of experience? come on! performance is performance!

He's a very established guy, hard to get too excited about it. He's having a hot streak so if you own him ride it while you can and if you find someone to sell high to go for it.

I'm wondering about Green as well. He's played for bad teams the last few years, so he probably had motivational issues. What if he is playing harder now w/ NYM?

actually, i think there's quite a bit to be said. here's a guy that, beginning in 2003, just fell out of the top-tier outfielders. this hot streak has effectively earned him a starting spot in a loaded line-up and on a big stage.

is this an exceptionally motivational context for him? i would just think we'd be a little more geeked about this type of production from mixed-league waiver fodder.

I wouldn't touch this guy in a deep NL-East only league.

He has a .355 BABIP with basically everything else at normal levels except a slightly lower K rate. Drop his BABIP back down to .315 where it normally is and his numbers are almost exactly in line with 2004-2006.

Green's value is almost completely dependent on how much playtime they give him because he's such an established player its unlikely he's going to break out to a higher level.
