Welcome back to fantasy relevance, Matt Murton

Postby Curtis Pride » Wed Feb 04, 2009 2:27 pm

Just traded to the Rockies. http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2009/02/r ... quire.html

Just turned 27.
Never given a real shot. Career line of .288/.354/.438

He's basically Spilboroughs with a bit more power. I can see him putting up a Coors line of .300/.375/.500 or better

OF competition: Hawpe, Spilboroughs, and rookies Carlos Gonzalez and Dexter Fowler.

Seems highly likely that their OF is Murton, Spilboroughs, Hawpe at least for the beginning of the year with Gonzalez and Fowler starting in the minors and seeing how the OF does.

Great trade for the Rockies.

Traded from Oakland to Coors? That makes him a first round pick. ;-D

Prediction: 40 HR, .340 AVG, 120 RBI, 110 R, and 30 SB

Seth Smith and Ian Stewart could also be contending for that LF spot, especially Smith and if Stewart cannot win at 2B he might test his luck in the OF.

we will have to see how much time he will get in the outfield considering he has several guys willng to cut his head off for the job but if he is a starter he will become very valuable by the time draft day rolls around B-)
