Nomar the sleeper?

Postby B-Chad » Sat Mar 21, 2009 2:52 pm

Am I crazy? In Yahoo! leagues he started enough games to qualify at SS. He actually posted respectable numbers in about a 200 bat sample size, so it got me to thinking, if he can get 500 ish AB's as a healthy replacement for a player more often injured then him, Eric Chavez (who'd think Nomar could be a healthy alternative :-b ), can he be useful? I think if he gets 500+ AB's he could post a line of 80-20-80 .290. As a SS that would be quite useful, and depending on where he hit in the lineup, maybe the counting numbers could be higher, say more runs out of the 2 hole, or more RBI's hitting in say the 5-6 spot. Maybe I'm crazy, but seeing as Chavez is already dinged up I figured I'd take this question to the boards. Thanks in advance!

I think there are better options. Nomar is 35 and hasn't reached 500 AB since he left Boston.

i think there are better options available. granted, god knows if chavez will ever be healthy again, but i think you might be able to get away with a "wait and see" approach.

I hadn't noticed his SS eligibility. Not bothering with him now, but if he is getting ABs and playing well I could see myself picking him up for a while. Interesting.
