Corey Hart Projection

Postby Russell James » Thu Apr 24, 2008 12:08 pm

Is it too much to expect: 30 HRs, 30 SBs, 100 Runs, 80 RBI, .300 AVG from this guy?

I made a risky trade in a fantasy league that I am having sellers remorse on. I had excess power on my team, Lee, Hafner, Manny, Markakis and Fielder and had few stolen bases. I also was needed some more depth at pitching. So I packaged Prince Fielder and ended up getting Corey Hart and Volquez for him.

My power really has not suffered at all after the trade. I happened to be matched up against the Fielder owner this week and am torching him in homeruns. Volquez pitched another gem this week and looks to be a solid pitcher. Corey Hart has been average this week.

The whole idea on my trade was that Corey Hart was David Wright-Lite. I think that he can possibly be a five stat stud. If that happens then I will feel good about my trade. Like I said, I am not missing the power that left me with Prince, but I think I may have overvalued Hart.

I'd be fine with that.

He hit .295 last season with around 500 ABs. Why the 15 point drop?

He might have the upside for a 100-30-100-30 season, but I would EXPECT an 85-25-80-20 season this year (what my baseline project for him was preseason). Much more than that and you're paying for potential.

I wish he would bat higher in the lineup. Also, hopefully he starts stealing soon. I was relying on him and Victorino to be carrying the load. :(

Partly because if you get your hope up you're setting yourself up to be disappointed, and partly because he'll be getting around 75-100 more AB's this year if he's an everyday starter, whch warrants a 15 point drop IMO.

He actually has more steals than HRs, I'd say the power aspect is more worrisome at this point.

I think it's reasonable to project an average drop, his contact rate is low 80's and he doesn't walk a lot, so his plate discipline is relatively poor. I'd guess .280-22 HR-85 RBI-85 R-28 SB for his final numbers.

The power just isn't there so far for Hart, no way he reaches 30 HRs. I say .282 80 20 85 22. Solid, but not what anyone was hoping for on draft day. I would try and find an owner that still thinks highly of Hart or you could wait and hope his value goes up. Hart's value is pretty low right now.

I really regretting drafting him in one of my modified keepers. It felt good @ 34 (88 overall) but I was well into my 5th or 6th beer. I don't think a .300 100-30-100-30 is entirely out of the question, but I think there was less risky picks for OF in that general area.

I suspect he will merely be a dissappointment due to ADP this year, and should be a nice grab in the 9-11th rounds next year.
If you found my advice helpful, please help me
