Keep Adam Lind for $10? Too much? WHIR!!!

Postby Therobsclub » Tue Feb 28, 2012 9:43 pm

Is $10 too much for Lind? He has the potential for .290 30 bombs...

I'm not sure about the money part, but I don't think Lind will be getting to .290 AVG. he's not as good vs LH pitching.
11- .243/.275/.364/.639
10- .117/.159/.182/.341
09- .275/.318/.461/.780
08- .253/.303/.385/.688
07- .194/.243/.299/.542
career- .223/.266/.349/.615

I think he is more likely to hit in the .27'0's.

power wise he does have the ability to reach 30 HR.
R/RBI will depend on his spot in the other plus the other Jays hitters. looks like the first half of the lineup will be Escobar/Johnson/Bautista/Lind, and then throw in players after that like Lawrie, Rasmus, Encarnacion, Thames(or Snider), Arencibia. Lind should be good for something like 70+ R and 90+ RBI?

I don't know how to factor in money, but that's the type of numbers I would expect from Lind.

help?

It would help to know what kind of league you are in and how many teams. Assuming nothing strange, I think it is a tad higher or about right. So I probably wouldn't keep him because you aren't getting any value out of him.

I dont think it is too far out.... A rounded figure... I'd say $10.

Without knowing your league/roster settings, I'd be inclined to release him and throw him back into the pool.
