Ryan Spilborghs looks damn good (in a baseball way)

Postby dssguy99 » Sat Apr 11, 2009 10:03 am

Im trying to understand something: WHY DIDNT THIS GUY EVER PLAY FULL TIME! He isnt that young...but he his over .300 every year in the minors...in the .330s from 05-08...so why wasnt he ever playing full time? In 08 he even hit .313 for Colorado. This guy seems like he will be pretty good...a little power too. Can anyone fill me in? I see him as a Johnny Damon type of guy. I just dropped Chase Headley for him which I think was a no brainer (as Headley was just a bench guy for me).

He was blocked in past years, but Holliday's departure (and the front office finally realizing that Willy Taveras was useless) has given him the opportunity to start full time, and he's taken advantage of it. He'll either bat leadoff, second, or third depending on how the lineup slots, so he should have plenty of opportunities to put up solid numbers.

I'm a fan as well. I think as a 3rd or 4th OF, you'd do just fine with Spilly.

I'm thinking .310, 80 r, 15-20 hr, 75 rbi and 15-20 sb. Not a monster anywhere but helpful across the board.

I won't pretend like everyone should be fully up to speed on the Rockies player development, or even be knowledgeable about the organization's prospects or everyday players. But please, calm down, there are numerous "upset" posts about Rockies personnel moves already, but there are very good reasons why things are the way they are. Why certain players did or did not get playing time, why catchers like Torrealba play over Iannetta (handling the diversity of our pitching staff), why Seth Smith or Clint Barmes ever starts over Ian Stewart (defense), etc. The main point is to have patience and to realize that the only way an organization such as Colorado is going to compete is to carefully develop the homegrown talent and to take the small steps necessary to obtain all the pieces of the puzzle. The answer is not to simply plug in the 8 best power hitters into the lineup to increase fantasy stats and have an exciting day at the park. The key is to win games. It seems obvious to a follower of the team - over time things will work themselves out.

PATIENCE - we are 5 games into a 162 game season.
