Anyone like Alcides Escobar for 2011?

Postby sigriffey » Tue Mar 29, 2011 11:31 am

I am wondering if this guy is primed for a little post-hype run this year.

Anyone with predictions/projections? Would he be worth dropping an extra RP like Venters to add?

His #'s last year were porous but definitely not indicative of his talent level. Just turned 24 so he's still young. The trade to KC helps his value because he'll play everyday and hit higher in the order. His numbers should improve significantly across the board. I see a (conservative) line of something like this:
BA .270
R 78
HR 6
RBI 58
SB 17
This probably puts him at about 8-10 at the SS position.

I'm expecting a .260 BA with 25 SB. R, RBI and HR should all be pretty ugly.
