Tony gwynn jr the real deal?

Postby dant734 » Wed Jun 10, 2009 10:31 pm

Whats the consensus on this guy hes lighting up the box scores all day. Obv his father was great. I read early in the year hes gonna be a streaky hitter in like the 270-280 range with some sbs. Seems like hes getting on base and hitting like pops.

Worth owning in a 12 team mixed yet? Anyone think he keeps it up?

He's a 26 year old with a career OPS under .700 in the minors. So no.

I think that he will hit .280-.290 with a good amount of steals.

And what are you basing this on? His career MiLB BA of .273? His average of 1 SB per 5 games? Maybe its the fact that he went to the worst hitters park in baseball.

well to give the guy some credit... i mean i wouldnt call it the worst 'hitters' park.. more the worst power park in baseball... and he's not there for power ... but ya i agree i dont think he'll be that good.

He's a worthwhile add in leagues who's stat category only includes slap singles and is restricted to children of former Major League Baseball players ;-D .
