His .372 OBP is in the 6-7 hole now isn't it?

Willy
Kaz
Holliday
Helton
Atkins
Hawpe/Tulo
Tulo/Hawpe
C
P

Right?

To answer the original question, like Matt said,he has value as a keeper league where you keep that many players.



Maybe in a few of the poorer teams or those with ordinary SS options but as the original poster said, it's unlikely he would keep him in his top 12. So why trade for him this year?

The announcers last night said he was clocked at 94mph in college while turning a double play

Dubious.

1. Radar guns are notoriously inaccurate (check out the Fox radar guns being 4+ mph faster than the stadium guns).
2. People don't radar SS's turning DPs.
3. People definitely don't radar high school SS's turning DPs.

Wow this reply might qualify for the worst reply ever in the history of the cafe.

1. Even a -4 on the gun would be 90 MPH very impressive

2. How do you know they didn't want to see how fast he threw? You are positive that never in the history of the world has anyone ever Radar gunned a SS throwing from second base to first. Also, why would they lie about that when he was obviously a highly scouted player. You are implying that a scout wouldn't be interested in how fast he threw the baseball from SS?

3. People might not radar high school players (and when I say they might not I really mean they definitely do) but he was in College so unless you don't understand the difference between College and High school or you spell College and high school the same you are wrong again.

And have you ever seen him throw the ball. He has a cannon and its been talked about a lot here in Denver.

So please next time possibly try to get 1 out of you 3 points correct or nearly accurate.

Here's an article on it
