NOT Matt Holliday. The Yankees' broadcaster saying he's the best hitter nobody's heard of is classic East Coast bias. Nobobdy east of the Hudson, maybe.


I still don't understand this east coast bias thing but whatever...

It's a Yankee broadcaster. They don't follow or know much about the NL and lots of their fans (non-fantasy baseballers) do not either so it's not a real surprise. Having said that, they're probably trying to get Holliday right now.

in my mind brandon phillips is a very underrated player. this guy is the 2nd best 2B in the NL and in my mind easily the best hitter on the reds..being from cincy if there was a man on 3rd with 2 out in the bottom of the 9th, id want phillips taking the swing..hes extremely consistent and a 30/30 player

I don't think you can just say he's a 30/30 hitter. He's barely on pace for 30 Hr's (29 to be exact) and has yet to do it in his career. I think he needs to actually do it or be on pace for well over that mark before he's known as a 30/30 hitter.

page four of this thread and no-one has mentioned orlando cabrera so I'll put him up as a nominee, for this year at least...he's been very good and with figgs at ninth it's like he's batting third in the lineup with vlad protecting him...ignore him this year at your peril as he is probably serious value...the most underrated fantasy player on my team right now....
