GOOD NEWS FOR HAIRSTON OWNERS

Postby justinA » Sat Feb 28, 2004 9:18 pm

well actually this is good news for basically owners of any Oriole hitter.. http://baltimore.orioles.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/bal/news/bal_news.jsp?ymd=20040228&content_id=642720&vkey=spt2004news&fext=.jsp

Mazzilli wants to be aggresive, almost like Florida where Derrek Lee swiped like 20. I think Matos could top 20 easily, Hairston will top 40, Roberts may have 10-15 depending on playing time, and Bigbie will prolly grab 15 as well. I like Mazzilli, being an O's fan, I like seeing an aggresive manager.

hmmmmmmm, all oriloles have the green light

did u guys know that Miguel Tejada was 10/10 (100% for those not that bright) on the base paths in 2003.

Miggy lead the A's in SB last season and the A's rarely steal. Miggy has some speed......Just imagine the possibilites?

Wut u guys thing will Miggy be swipeing bags in a Orioles uniform possibly making him a 5 category SS

If he stole 10 w/ the anti steal A's.....How many can he steal with the green light O's? How about 25.

by the way Tejada has a career SB% of 71 %.

Soriano has a career SB% of 77%.
Renteria has a career SB% of 74%
Nomar career SB% 75%
Ichiro 77%
Pierre 75%

My point is ok miggy wont steal 50 like Ichiro/Pierre are capable of but he is capable of 25-30....who knows

Yeah Hairston or Roberts would be much more valuable if one was traded to the Yankees. That's why I'm tempted to grab Roberts in some leagues. He's hardly ever picked, no matter how deep the league, yet he could possibly be starting at the shallowest position for the best team in baseball.

And BTW: Carlos Beltran has an 88% success rate, and had over 90% last season. 2005 #1 pick? Depends on where he signs, but it looks promising ;-D All he has to do is hit 30 HR, steal 50 bases, and and keep his R/RBI on the good side of 110. He'll be the ultimate 5 category player. I'm betting on 30/50, mark it down!

easier said then done. The season u stated there could be one of the best ever from a 5 cat. perspective.

That's why I'm so optimistic about him. It doesn't seem far fetched, but it is reasonably attainable. Unless he declines from last year he'll put up those numbers. And since I don't see a reason for decline, by process of elimination, I presume he can attain those stats.

I heard KC moved their fences back, which will result in less HR for Beltran. He doesn't hit monster shots so I think it can have a direct affect on his HR numbers. With that said, I think he can get more doubles and maybe a triple or 2 more....
