Luis Matos?

Postby thehotcorner » Fri Feb 13, 2004 11:43 am

Is he starting in baltimore? In 109 Games Last season he hit

.303 70R 13HR 45RBI 15SB

Is 20/20 too much expect from him in a full season? Lower batting avg and runs/rbis slightly up?

20/20 is not too much. As a matter of fact I have him around .275-20-27

in a full season.

Shhhhhhh!...he's one of my sleepers!

20/20 is a possibility, although I'd say that's best case scenario...

I'd look for a few less runs but quite a few more rbi since he will probably be hitting towards the bottom of a stacked lineup.

Would he be worth taking a chance over Jason bay?

I think Bay has more upside but with his injury concerns i'd say it's a toss up. Bay is another .280-20-20 guy most likely.

Last year before his callup i think he went like .303-20-23 in 91 games...

I had him as my sleeper of the year at one point.....too bad he's hitting so far down in the order though. 20/20 isn't a stretch, but 15 HR's is more likely. If he gets on a streak like he did last year, 30 SB's are definately attainable too. And he should bat 300.

A sleeper of mine as well.

I was thinking more like 15 HR and 20 SB.

Will Baltimore run more than they have in the past? What's the Lee Mazzili factor?

i'd say with their sorry pitching they will need to do something to get the runners in scoring position. I don't see why he'd hold his rabbits back unless the game was real close.

Those look like pretty good projections. I wouldn't mind spending a late pick on him.

20/20 might be a stretch. His HRs last year were a bit of a surprise last year, so it's not clear whether it was a fluke or a sign of development.

In his first interview Mazzilli said he would stress team speed, so I would not be surprised to see Matos run.

Also, if Mora plays like he normally does, rather than like he did last year and Matos continues to improve I would not at all be surprised to see them swap batting slots. If Matos leads off, his value increases dramatically.
