Let's talk Erick Aybar

Postby Warpigs » Fri Apr 18, 2008 10:06 pm

Started nine consecutive games and has done well stat-wise lately. Eligible at 2b and ss in yahoo leagues. Someone like this a potential Rollins fill in (minus the power)?

I just added him in my 10 team AL only league to replace ass-drool Cabrera. I like his upside and his chances to hold off either Izturiz or Kendrick when Kendrick comes back. Look for him to play 4-5 times per week once Kendrick is back

He's a better hitter than his career .252 BA suggests. He had a couple opportunities to run last night but didn't which makes me think he might not be a great source of steals even though he's got some speed.

Depends on league settings and format. In my 20 team league I would consider starting him at 2B and SS (it's a mess). I think he can still get 25-30 SB's, but the one thing that concerns me is his very poor MiLB SB success rate (about 60%). that might limit how much running he does.

He has been a handy pickup for me, can fill in at 2B and SS and get hits at no cost. I'm liking him decently. ;-D

i took him in one of the last rounds of a 9team al only keeper this year, and hung onto him just incase he got to start.

now ive got a guy offering me sheffield for him, and im not entirely sure i want to take that.

if aybar starts he's going to give good sb numbers and a decent ba

Izturis is hitting .140 right now, so if Aybar continues to hit well I could see him supplanting Izturis at SS once Kendrick returns. For me he's a great add as I have Kendrick so while Kendrick is out I can plug in Aybar. And when Kendrick gets hurt again a few weeks after coming off the DL I'll have Aybar all ready to go. :-D

tought id bump this up...

hes still hitting over .300 so he has to start over izturis even when kendrick returns. wood's promotion is a little more concerning though...what do you guys think he'll do going forward? i've been intrigued by him lately because of the dual eligibility as a possible bench candidate.

His minor league numbers say he's better than most people think. He has great SBs totals.
