Will this be a breakout year for Wells?

Postby DBacksRule » Thu Feb 26, 2004 12:22 pm

Do you think Vernon Wells will match/surpass his numbers from last year? I picked him as an early third round pick and was happy to see him fall. Also it is a keeper league.

I think last year would be his "breakout" year. However, I expect good numbers from him this year, too... though I wouldn't be surprised if he slid a bit.
I'm back. Sorta.

This year, I fully expect Wells to become an elite player, not just duplicating his stats from last year. His work ethic is tremendous, and he recently came into camp about 20 lbs less than last year...reulting in more sbs. I am projecting him at

.330
42 HR
130 RBI
15 SB
120 Runs

I'd put an asterisk next to his name on draft day. He was one of those guys noted that slimmed down considerably coming into camp last week.

Toronto doesn't run--its against there philosophy. He will never have double-digit SBs there. And how can you project 15 more HRs when he is dropping 20 lbs. of muscle? He will be more like .300/95/20/95/8

It's true Toronto doesn't run much, but Hinkse had double-digit SB's last year; I see no reason why Wells couldn't do something similar.... I don't feel 10-15 steals is a stretch for him at all!

And I really think he had his breakout year LAST year. Expecting much more than last season's numbers from him, could be asking too much. He was a monster!!! I don't think I'll be getting him in the 13th round again.....and I was heckled for that pick!
