Yunel Escobar!!!

Postby Crystalstorm » Thu Apr 03, 2008 7:16 am

This guy had a GREAT Sping Training,and he has carried it over into the regular season.He is available at 2nd,ss and 3rd in MOST leagues. He is a big guy 6-2 WT 200 lbs,and is strong as an OX,qouted by managment.
I see him being a Top 10 2nd/SS in ALL formats. 15-20 Hr's,70-80 RBI,80-90 runs and 10+ SB's with close to a 300 BA, batting in Atlanta's 2 hole is very reasonable IMO. ;-D
I got him late in my draft and I am very pleased with him thus far.I targeted him in all of my leagues,and I got him in eveyone of them.
If you don't grab him NOW,he won't be on waivers in 2 weeks.GUARENTEED !!!!!

He's still available in about 15% of ESPN leagues,is what I'm trying to get at.and probably available in a higher % in other leagues.
I didn't see a post about him,so I decided to make one.I don't make POST,during meaningless Spring training games,so I missed out on all the fun you had a Month ago. :-)

Yeah, it's Crystalstorm with his first "Grab [insert player] before it's too late!" thread of the season! I missed ya, buddy! Last year, who was it? I think I remember "Grab Doumit/Hughes/Kouzmanoff before it's too late!" from 07. Looking back, you were pretty spot on. I have all three except Doumit this year...

Honestly though, I would love to grab Yunel seeing as I have no 2B (and he's on fire to start the season), but unfortunately, your sage advice came a bit too late this year...it already is too late for me.

I will, however, be looking forward to the next installment of "Grab [player name] before it's too late!"

I'm just hoping your grammar has improved from last year... ;-)

A lot of peope like Escobar, but I'm not buying the hype. 15-20 HR's is laughable IMO (10 HR in 836 minor league at-bats). I doubt he reaches 70+ RBI's in the two spot even if he does manage to reach double digits in HR's. A normalization of his hit % wouldn't result in a .300 AVG much less the .326 he pulled off last season. A decent young MI option with nice position eligibility, but not someone I want at 2B or SS.

I didn't realize he was on the WW in any leagues. I was targeting him and reach in my draft but someone reached even harder than I wanted to in the 11th.

Sell high after April is my advice. Though he should be owned in every league.
