Matt Weiters production?

Postby shoelessjoetara » Thu May 21, 2009 12:22 am

What sort of a stat line should he attain if he is called up by June 1? I have him on my bench and am just wondering what some people think he will do when he arrives.

Mudville,
I'm not sure if you know what ur talking about, #1 Wieters is a catcher with below avg speed. we're talking 5 SB in a good year. And if he hits 65 Homers he have a heck of a lot more then 139 RBI's. And I assume those predictions are over a full season, so your looking at closer to 40-45 homers and 120 RBI's.

My prediction is 40 homers 120 RBI's and 2 SB's.

Ummm, yeah, I was not being serious (thought it was obvious....guess not).

I was just having a little fun with yet another Matt Wieter's prediction thread. Here's my real prediction: He'll be up at some point during 2009, sooner rather than later, and he will be very good. He's the very definition of "Elite Hitting Prospect". Expect power and more-than-solid OBP. Once he gets the call I fully expect that he will be a top 3-5 fantasy catcher for the remainder of the season. If you've held on to him for this long, it wouldn't make much sense to consider dropping him now.

(BTW, in Barry Bonds' 2001 season when he hit 73 HRs, he had 137 RBI's....just sayin' ;-) ).

Does it count if he hits one through the back wall of the stadium? I read that after he signed he had a batting practice session in Camden Yards and hit one that went through the wall of the building beyond the fence.

I don't know about you guys but I'm expecting a .450 average with a .700+ OBP. Anything less and he is getting cut for Kurt Suzuki. He has been described as a Mauer with power. So 60 HR also looks like a lock.
