Will Tim Salmon be like 2000 or 2001?

Postby Guest » Thu May 23, 2002 3:21 am

Just wondering what you think Tim Salmon will be like this year?

Last year he only hit 17 hrs and 49 Rbi, but in 2000 he was a 30+, 100+ RBI. Is he worth picking up and dropping someone in my outfield? I have

Vladdy
Garett Anderson
Austin Kearns
Burnitz
Danny Bastista
Erick Heinske (Utility)
David Eckstein (Utility)

A repeat of 2000 may be a bit too much to hope for, but Salmon's healthy again and has looked good lately. I'd drop Burnitz, who seems to be going downhill fast, for him.

Possibly 3 Angels in the Outfield

I have Garett Anderson and David Exckstein. If I pick up Tim Salmon that means I'll have 3 Angels in the outfields and utility (Eckstein). Is this a bad thing? Right now it's hard because Tim Salmon is the best outfielder available to pick up.

Also, when David Justice gets back, should I drop Danny Bastista? He's out for 10 days anyways. Thanks.

Well, the Angels won't be the best offensive team by a long shot, but if Salmon is the best guy available, I wouldn't worry too much about where he plays.

Bautista may be out for a while - keep an eye on this situation. If you have a dl, he could be there for a while. If not, and if he's set to miss significant time, pick up Justice.

Salmon's outlook

Do you think Salmon will get 30+ hr's and 90+ RBI's like Burnitz will this year? He will probably have a better batting avg. than Burnitz. Salmon or Burnitz?

I'd give Salmon the nod. I'd be interesting in hearing what others think, though...
