Laynce Nix

This guy is having a bad Spring -- hitting less than .200. Is he going to be the full-time centerfielder for Texas? Any chance he'll split time.

I had him projected for 14-16 home runs, 60 RBI, 10 steals and an average of about .275.

Who cares? He shouldn't be on any fantasy team.

As for him splitting time.. Alfonso playing center is a slim possibility.

I think that Nix has the CF job locked up right now, though if he's terrible, I can see them giving Ramon Nivar a chance. But I wouldn't expect that to happen right away. Maybe after a few regular-season weeks.


And he belongs on my fantasy team- though there are 20 teams and it's deeper than most.

I still think he will play. With Soriano staying at 2B, him and nivar are the only candidates for CF and nivar is still pretty young and has not proven himself during the season.

Hey, Inkubus, must be nice playing in your six-team ML league. Every squad is full of all-stars, right? What? You got Prior, Delgado, Sheffield and Boone in the first four rounds? Awesome, way to stay on top of your draft.

Try playing in a deep ML league or an AL/NL only league. Knowing the fourth outfielder is a must in those leagues.

He's on my team too :-o

Although it's an 18 team keeper with 25 man rosters.

8-o Seems a wee bit harsh. I'm sure glad I traded him before this tidbit of data went public. :-°

Fotunatley, for the guy I traded him to, I expect him to put up decent numbers. His numbers should be similar to or maybe a bit lower than Darin Erstad's between 1998-1999. 275AVG, 17HR, 77RBI, 19SB. He's a gamer and reminds me of Erstad, so I thought I'd throw the comparison out there. Nivar's been optioned and I don't put too much stock in Spring training stats. He'll be the starter and I think he'll be solid.

Yeah I read this morning in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that the Rangers have optioned Nivar to AAA and Nix is the starting CF.

So there you have it.

Nivar went 5-for-17 this spring, but the converted second baseman needs some time in Triple-A to work on his defense in center. By June or July, he could get a chance to push Laynce Nix to a corner. Dominguez, the team's top pitching prospect, may also get his next opportunity right around then.


Yep Nivar is out and Lance is the man.... :-)
