Erstad

Postby Cornbread Maxwell » Fri Jan 30, 2004 3:44 pm

Im probably going to regret bringing his name up, but what are some of your thoughts on him this yr.
Assuming that convoluted 3 way deal between the white sox, anaheim, and the yankees is hogwash, and Erstad stays with the Angels, what are some projections for him?

Am I wrong to think he could be a fine late rd sleeper for runs and possibly steals?

I never have liked Erstad so I will stay away from him and not feel one bit bad about it

By the way, is this the lineup one could expect:

Erstad
Kennedy
Vlad
Anderson
Glaus
Salmon

or do I have it all wrong?

And isnt Erstad moving to 1b where there would be less of a strain on his body, thus letting him steal more like he was used to? He was averaging 20-25 SB before last yr, with a career .289 average. At closer look, what about an every other yr strategy?
99 - .253
00 - .355
01 - .258
02 - .283
03 - .252 (only 67 games because of injury)
04 - ???

One could reasonably assume that the top of this lineup will have tons of runs and plenty of base stealing opportunities if they get on base.

nice find, he'll come dirt cheap, i wouldn't want to rely on him though

i'll take a late round gamble on erstad, maybe becuase i've never owned him. he should score runs and steal a few bases, but it looks like hes been weak as a kitten on the power #s the last few years. i'm big on individual potential so don't assume he'll do well just becuase vlad and glaus are behind him to start. if he stinks he may get put deep in the order.

Those are my feelings as well. I dont believe he should be taken unless you are in a very deep league.

I wouldn't mind having him on my bench. If he stays healthy, he's a nice backup to have.
