Garret Atkins will pick it up now??

Postby janssenlbd » Sat May 05, 2007 11:00 pm

It looks the Rockies are finally going to stop putting Finley and Carrol at the top of the order. Taveras/Tulowitzki have been hitting well at the no. 1 and 2 spot over the past few games and Atkins has this little 7 game hitting-streak going. Does anybody think Atkins will duplicate last years totals? I really thought he'd be the 3rd best 3b this year.

On a side-note, the Rockies have him hitting 5th today.

He's been hitting fifth for a few days or so, and doing fairly well in that spot. Hit a home run tonight that the umps called a ground rule double (it was clearly a home run to everyone but them evidently :-t ) and hit a warning track shot that was a few feet from another home run.

I think he'll be fine the rest of the year, especially with the four men who hit in front of him.

I think he will duplicate last year's totals, or at least come very close. He will have lots of RBI oppurtunitoes in the 5 spot.

I think this guy is a Great Buy-Low right now.

I also like Atkins to at least come close to last season's stats. I would definitely buy low if possible.

its good to here that people are not panicking on Atkins like they are with Wright.

If the rockies keep him in the 5th spot though, wont his run totals take a significant dive?

Yes, his runs will take a significant dive, but his RBI's will go up.
