3 or 4th Tier SS

Postby Guest » Tue Mar 02, 2004 3:16 am

Here are my rankings for keeper leagues:

Furcal
Kaz Matsui
O. Cabrera
Jose Reyes
Angel Berroa

I think Matsui could be the best on this list. From what I heard, he coud be a 20-20 guy with more steal - maybe 35? Anyways, I think the SS position is alot deeper than previous years with guys like Reyes bubbling with potenial.

Put up your rankings so we can compare. In a 12 team league I think its a bargin if you can't grab an Arod or Nomar to pick one of these guys in the 6th or 7th round.

furcal
cabrera
berroa
reyes
matsui

i dont see how anyone can say he is gonna soo great. i just dont have faith in a guy changing countries, cultures, leagues, teams, and performing to be an excellent shortstop straight away. Sure he may have looked great in japan, but that league is equivalent to triple A, and if you now think that those would be his numbers in the minors, theres no way he's looking like a stud. the mets are a joke for moving the centrepiece franchise player for him.

Cabrera
Furcal
Berroa
Matsui
Reyes

Matsui had 13 steals last year. I wouldn't count on 20/20, but I guess it could happen.

Furcal (now he has finally learned patience at the plate will only get better and is clearly No.1 )

Cabrera (only a .270 career hitter puts him behind Furcal but clearly No.2)

Berroa
Matsui
Reyes

I don't think his season was a bis disapointment.

82 R, 16 HR, 102 RBI and a .287 Avg aren't that bad of numbers for a rookie (if you want to call him that, or I could say for someone's first year in the Majors)
I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. -Crash Davis
