Wily Mo to the Nationals

Postby Another Blown Save » Fri Aug 17, 2007 1:37 pm

According to the Boston Herald, no word as to what the Sox are getting in return.

I kinda saw this coming since Bowden loves Wily Mo.

I dunno, it might be significant in deep leagues. He has the power to hit the long-ball and will probably get a lot of playing time now. As the article mentions, he will give some much needed protection to Zimmerman, which is a great sign for his owners like me.

If he's getting 80% + playing time, I think he could be a valuable source of dingers in a lot of leagues. He's still young (25), but has 4+ years of MLB experience. In '04 he hit 26 HRs in 336 ABs in Cincy (which inflated his numbers some). Last year he hit .301 with 11 HRs in 276 ABs.

With regular playing time or almost regular playing time, he's gonna do just fine.

Heck, I'd like him on my roster just because of his name's rootability factor...

started a thread but i guess there's already one here

well i think he's ganna be good cause he's always had tremedious potential, and now his power is showing with some decent pt

even though he's in RFK stadium there's little doubt when his homers go out, and if soriano can hit homers in a park like that, then a big strong guy like wily mo can do it

GO WILY MO!

I'm very curious to see what he can do in a stress free environment like Washington. I think he was really jerked around in Boston, and he was constantly viewed as a bust despite the fact that he never got consistent AB's.

I will be keeping a very close eye on him over the next couple weeks to see how he progresses. Hopefully, the NL won't figure out for a while not to throw him fastballs... :-D
