Will Vlad be running this year?

Postby The Jury » Sun Feb 29, 2004 8:55 am

If he isn't.. he's generally a 110-40-120-.300 guy which is good but certainly there not in the upperest echelons of outfielders.

Is "upperest" a word now? Ugh, schools these days...

I predict 21 steals.

If you get 15 steals I would be surprised.

An Average of .330 pushes him above your average top OF. His SB push him even higher. I'd expect around 15 SB, any more is just a Bonus.

i think around 20. if glaus has been swiping 10 bags a year then vlad should at least be able to double that. i dont really like his tightness in his legs excuse. how does he know how he is going to feel in a month or two? there is plenty of time to get rid of 'tightness' in your legs before the season starts.

to answer all you haters and doubters out there, u bet ur ass i'll be running... i'm showing no signs of wear and tear on my back going into spring training, and i have something to prove. i never had any problem with my legs in the past before, so dont be scared. i'll be in full health going into the season, so pencil me in for 25-30 SBs fantasy owners and that's just a conservative estimate.

lol :-D

I predict 20....How can you say that a .330 average pushes him over your average OF....since when do you have to hit 40 120 .330 to be "above Average"?

Here's the things you need to know to know if Vlad will be running.

1. He's playing in the American League in a strong line-up.
2. He's stolen more than 15 bases twice in his career.
3. His career sb/cs ratio is 123/71. He's caught over half the time that he runs.
4. The Angels would have to be idiots to let him run at any helpful rate.

I predict 9 sbs.
