Garrett Atkins: expectations for rest of the year?

Postby bjfcool2 » Tue Jun 02, 2009 4:35 pm

He has been terrible so far this year can he turn it around? Is he a good buy low candidate?

I think he's a good buy low, whose price should be real low. Tempter expectations, but if you can get him for a song, can't see why not.

I'm buying low on him myself. I hope he get's traded or gets some kinda boost with the Rockies. But I am targeting him

I traded him off. There are a few signs of him declining to me. He's been almost as bad as Papi this year and looks completely lost at the plate. His Ave with RISP is horrible and Im not sure a move would do much either. There are not many better places to hit than Coors. I see him tanking to 18 HR, 70 RBI, .260 type levels.

Atkins is sitting in the FA pool right now in my 11 team roto, after owning him the last two years I think I'll just sit tight with Jorge Cantu.

I dropped him in my league. Wasn't happy I drafted him and was very happy to finally let him go. Picked up Casey Blake for the time being while he's hot.

So you're expecting 15-53 287 the rest of the way? Sounds like you expect him to start raking any day now. :-b

That's really not crazy over 2/3 of a season.
