Holding Andy Marte?

Postby Steve-o » Sun Jul 15, 2007 12:08 am

Am I the only one left hanging on to him? Not really an add drop question, just trying to get some opinions.

Here are his current minor league numbers (169 AB):
.266, 9 HR, 9 BB, 31 K, .304 OBP, .467 SLG, .771 OPS.

Breaking it down a little more:
v. L (61 AB)
.295, 4HR, 3BB, 4K, .338/.557 for a .896 OPS
v. R (108 AB)
.250, 5 HR, 6 BB, 27K, .284/.417 for a .701 OPS

Lets not forget his stellar MLB numbers (221 AB):
.204/.270/.367 for a stellar .637 OPS

BP lists his comparables as: Ron Santo, Hank Blalock, Tom Evans, Edwin Encarnacion, and Joe Crede. Not exactly a stellar group, but not too bad either. However, BP projects his MLVr over the next five years to be negative (0.000 is an average player) and VORP around 11-12. I'll link his player card since it's free week at BP.

He is still only 23. Frankly, at this point, he is a long way removed from his good season at age 20 in AAA, and age 21 season in AAA. Anyone out there think he is going to become anything other than a bench player, if that?
In my fridge: Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS), Central Waters Peruvian Morning, Bell's Batch 10,000, Dale's Pale Ale, Capital Brewery Amber, New Glarus Moon Man, and Guinness.

Things aren't looking good as of now for Marte, but I'm still holding out a little hope for him. He still has great tools and could put it back together at some point. The chances look pretty slim though.
