When will Nady slow down?

Postby The Mighty Trow » Thu May 29, 2008 3:15 pm

He's famous for storming out of the gates and then quickly cooling down to merely decent numbers. But this year seems to be his hottest start yet. The splits show he slows down after May but does anyone believe his extra-hot start will carry over for a few extra weeks?

As a known 1st half hitter, he has little to no trade value, especially in small leagues. If I can't trade him, I'll have to drop him. But I'm so reluctant because here it is, the end of May and he's still hitting very well.

How much longer can he keep this going?

Hopefully as long as possible. If the only choice you have is to drop him when he cools off then enjoy the ride for however long it lasts. I have been unable to find any takers for him either so there isn't much you can do except keep an eye on him and don't grow too attached.

as soon as the Pirates realize they can trade him for someone like, oh, maybe Frank Thomas? Either that or Joe Nobody...

If you really feel the need to drop him, I wouldn't lose much sleep over it. You've already enjoyed his best two months of the season anyways even if he keeps it up for the next few weeks. Outfielders are pretty easily replaceable, especially in the shallower leagues.

He's been injured in the past so if he stays healthy then I could see him putting together a career year. I doubt you can get much for him unless you package him to entice the other owner in a bigger deal.

Yup, career year is what I was going to say as well. He's 29 so thats generally a pretty decent age to have that career year. Anyway, just keep him and ride him out if you got him....you won't get much of anything in return so there is no point.
