Ryan Spilborghs: Worth a pickup?

Postby coldfusion » Wed Aug 08, 2007 4:17 pm

Been hitting pretty well, but really nowhere to put him with Taveras in center, Hawpe in right, and Holliday in left. Worth a look anyways?

I've owned him for a couple of weeks now but that is largely because I own Hawpe as well. I'm not sure he'll maintain this pace but he has been demolishing left-handers (small sample size though) whom he primarily faces when Hawpe is benched, so if you own Hawpe he's probably a pickup if you are in a large or NL-only league. If you can afford the bench space he might be worth a look when you know the Rockies are facing a LHP.

vs. LHP: 46 AB, .478/.528/.891

vs. RHP: 92 AB, .264/.311/.440

I'm doing pretty much the same thing as above.

Playing Granderson vs Righties and Spilboroghs vs Lefties.

if you have Hawpe nad have a roster spot, he is your guy for sure.
Hawpe cant hit lefties so hell fill in and he'll spell Holliday from time to time.
