Is Matt Joyce for real?

Postby kaiser » Sun May 22, 2011 5:50 pm

What's the opinion on Matt Joyce? Is he see high right now, or will this last? The BABIP is high (.412), which isn't a good sign, but man, he is killing it, and has been for a while.

Sell or hold?

I'm holding. No one is going to give up anything for Joyce right now.

hold, as a guy you got off the wire, ride him out, people still wont believe in him. see Bautista last yr. BABIP is extremely high yes, but his LD rate is insane, he is completely locked in, as a matter of fact even if you see his other AB's its usually lined out, or deep fly out.

If you can find someone that you can sell high with then you do it all day long...problem is you will be very lucky to find someone who will actually give you more than a dozen baseballs for him. It's very rare to sell high on guys who've been in the league for a couple years and haven't been good and all of a sudden they get hot for a month or so...you just can't often sell those guys.

Keep if you can't get much for him but if you get solid value out of him then sell all day.

Matt Joyce, Jason Kubel, Luke Scott or even a guy like JD Drew are very similar imo. .275, 25+ HR's and <5 SB's while either have a real or perceived weakness against lefties. Either they are platooned in real life or they should be platooned on your fantasy team.

I hope not, because I splept on him a few hours too long due to weekly lineups and the platoon thing.

I'm getting a sick feeling that he is for real

I have had Joyce in a 16 team h2h league for about 4 weeks or so now. He has been very good for me, but I do sit him verse lefties.
