Hey, I'm sorry you got burned thinking Oriole management might give the guy a chance to play last year, but facts are facts. Cust also hit 25 doubles in those 400 ABs. Those 70 ABs in September project to 30 HRs and 50 2Bs. Now, I don't really believe Cust is going to hit that well for a full season, but Cust had a very quiet, very strong season last year.
How many HRs did Overbay have last year in close to 400 ABs?
If we want to play the game of projecting 70 AB's over a full season, I'll trade you Kevin Maas.
Don't get me wrong, I like Cust's upside, but this is a very big year for him with the Orioles.
What would be the point of keeping him (his 3rd organization)if he has a similar season?
The same goes for shallow fantasy pools. Unless you are AL only, he remains a risk.
And for the record, in 360 AB's, Overbay hit a whopping total of 8 long ones last year (nearly tying his career high)
