2003 Cintron vs. 2002 Bellhorn

Postby Mordraken » Tue Mar 23, 2004 2:21 pm

Last year in my draft, I had my "Must Get Guy" marked as Mark Bellhorn. In a league that uses R/RBI/SB/OBP/SLG, this guy looked phenominal. He was going to be playing every day, and the previous year did this:

2002- 445 ABs, 86 runs, 56 RBIs, .374 OBP, .512 SLG, 7 SB, 144 Ks, 76 BBs.

His prior two years, he had OPS numbers of .453 and .421, but 2002 was his first real "full time" year. Bellhorn played 2B, 3B and SS which made him a phenominal bench value.

This year, I'm looking at Cintron. As a 2B/3B he also has the multi-position elligibility. But his stats remind me a lot of Bellhorns'.

Cintron 2003: 448 ABs, 70 runs, 51 RBIs, .359 OBP, .489 SLG, 2 SBs, 33Ks, 29 BBs.

His prior year he had an OPS of .615

The only real differnce between the two is the number of strikeouts and walks. Bellhorn struck out 28% of the time and walked about 15% while Cintron struck out 7% and walked 6%,

Am I worrying over nothing? Is Cintron really different from Bellhorn (who was a sleeper on most lists at the beginning of 2003)?

Yes, still at Arizona. Supposed to be batting either 2nd or 5th (incidentally exactly what Bellhorn was supposed to do).

Well it sounds like he's got a good spot in the lineup, either ahead or after Gonzo so you can hope for some runs scored or even RBI's, if Gonzo doesnt wipe the bases clean every time. Cintron will defintely steal some bases though.

Cintron isn't known for power or speed, he's known for being a toolsy guy with a glove who can put up a decent average.

I'd have no problems with Cintron being on any of my teams next year. :-)

Cintron is a much better player than bellhorn. He won't put up stellar power #'s, adequate at his position.
