Brendan Harris

Postby Berg » Sun Jun 10, 2007 1:17 pm

Is this guy legit or is he just having a hot start and will fizzle out? He's got 2B/SS eligibility and I'm thinking of dropping Felipe Lopez for him, but I don't know who's better to have the rest of the year. Anyone know much about Harris and if it's worth making the switch? I'm sure if I drop Lopez he'll commence to having a career season.

I wouldn't worry about that. Lopez already had a career year in '05.

As for Harris, I don't really know too much about him other than he was not a high-touted prospect. Of course, that doesn't mean much.

I needed a SS to fill in while Lugo is slumping, and I picked him up. The thing that impressed me was that his batting average has consistently been .300+ all season, no slumps.

He's stolen a couple of bases, so he has a bit of speed, and he's got some pop. He's hitting .316 with 7 HRs. Not bad.

Harris will be batting 2nd in the lineup until Upton gets back, but then will probably go back down in the lineup. Harris is in a good lineup and as long as he gets on base he will probably score runs. The guy is a hard worker, not pverly talented, but is getting the job done.

For what it's worth, here is an interesting article on Brendan Harris from back in 2004:

Interesting reading for those wondering where he came from.

Interesting, thanks for the post. They projected 20 steals, so apparently has some speed he's not using?

Brendan has decent speed, but he is not overly fast. Brendan so far this year though has been asked to make contact and knock people in. Also, he seems to always come up with someone on and does not really see many opps to steal. He is batting in the 2 hole now and that may help, but BJ will be back in the 2 spot come thur or fri
