Is Hinske for real?

Postby krunchyfrogg » Tue May 18, 2010 7:44 am

I know he's on a hot streak right now, but can this guy be a valuable fantasy player?

In yahoo, he qualifies at 1B/3B/OF, and AFAIK, he's got the starting LF job in Atlanta.
Looking forward to back to back championships in 2011!

He doesn't have a ton of ABs in his career but the numbers he does have are a bit below impressive.

I just dropped him for Everth Cabrera in my IF spot, based mostly on gut feeling and the fact that I'm trying to dominate SBs this year. I think Hinkse will continue to have problems with consistancy.

There's no guarantee he continues to get daily at-bats in the Braves lineup. Sure he's going well right now, but this is a serious on-again / off-again mostly part-time ball player. I wouldn't bother unless there truly aren't better options available or you want a multi-position guy as a depth spot.
