the Padres are known as a team that isnt that good of an offensive team because they play in PETCO, but isnt that more of an effect on their power numbers? if they can be more of an OBP team with alot of running i dont think they are going to be as bad as people think.

i imagine a factor could be David Eckstein. right now he is projected to bat 2nd? is he really someone the Padres should be batting 2nd?

His spring stats made me take note. I'm with you on a late-round flier although I do think the projections from the OP are on the high end.

You guys missed it. he's working with Dave Roberts and that is the reason that he's going to steal 20 more bases than you would otherwise project for him.

Following this logic, Matt Holliday should hit 50+ HRs this year, too? Maybe Roberts is just teaching Venable how to run the bases more effectively. not necessarily going to translate into steals.

not a bad first 6 games, for a 24th rounder/waiver pickup

picked up his first steal tonight, I might have shot a little high on that but overall numbers are pretty solid

.296 2hr 1sb, 8runs, 7rbi

him working with Roberts and Holliday working with McGwire are 2 completely different aspects, McGwire isnt gonna make Holliday stronger, but Roberts working on leads and reading pitchers and getting jumps can = more steals.

power not here yet, avg a little low but slowly climbing, runs will come, hit leadoff for 1st time tonight, and 3-3 3runs 1 rbi 1 sb so far.

looks like if he leads off runs might hit 80, the 80 rbis might be tough to reach, and the HRs might be tough to hit.

but the steals are a huge bonus 11/12, I predicted 28 and was lambasted, looks like his working with Dave Roberts would truly lead to more steals, and see Headley as well.

anyways he might be getting hot, and definately could have value heading forward. Deep leagues and daily leagues take notice, seems to be sitting vs lefties though so a good platoon situation, although the way the Padres are hitting as a team, if a guy gets hot, he needs to be in there everyday.

with Cargo hitting for a much higher avg, I shoulda made this a BJ Upton comparison its looking like.
