C Chris Iannetta in deep leagues

Postby West » Wed May 04, 2011 6:21 pm

As long as Iannetta keeps starting he is an excellent platoon candidate with a guy like Suzuki, Pierzinsky, Rios, etc.

Home: 1.146 OPS
Away: .069 AVG, .103 SLG

Also,
vLHP: 1.433 OPS
vRHP: .600 OPS

Anyone else playing the home/LHP splits with Iannetta? Starting on May 9th, 14 of his next 19 games are at home.

I didn't realize he was mashing so well at home, because he's been downright atrocious on the road. I've resorted to dropping him and playing Yadier "I-offer-nothing" Molina.

How could you not realize that? Weren't you the proprietor of the Clint Barmes/Michael Young hybrid platoon? Or am I thinking of someone else...

Must be someone else. The only Platoon I've ever been a fan of starred Charlie Sheen.

Hahaha, nice. My bad dude, I was thinking of this Frances guy...link below:

Anyhow, yes, he's been downright atrocious away from Coors, which has effectively hidden some really nice production at home.

If I had an extra bench spot or if I can get trade value out of Montero or Santana I'd probably pick him up to platoon with the one I have left.

I should note that Iannetta is probably starter worthy in any OBP league. .188 AVG/.388 OBP. On the road it's an amazing .090/.348

Iannetta is turning it on just in time for a long homestand. Grab him while he's hot.

I drafted him, dropped him two weeks in and picked him up again Sunday. Riding out the hot streak like others have mentioned.

LHP and home splits are still crazy (1.459 and 1.083 OPS, respectively). If you grabbed Iannetta for the last two homestands he paid some nice dividends. Dropped him for Napoli today and I'll pick him up again June 9th for a 10 game homestand. That is unless someone else grabs him first. ;-)
