At what point is Womack no longer a fluke?

Postby trac02 » Sat Apr 17, 2004 12:35 pm

I mean, just two years ago he was a 30 SB guy. And for some reason I thought he was much older than 34. He seems to have a secure job and he's running like a madman. Are 40 steals out of the question?

He needs to keep it up until at least June to remove the fluke tag.

I just hope he keeps it up til Nomar comes back :-)

His job isn't as secure as everything seems to think it is. Both Anderson and Hart are good players and he needs to keep it up to keep the job. 40 steals are NOT out of the quesion assuming he stays healthy.

Womack

Right now, it looks like Womack will have at least 50 stolen bases this year. If you have a need for speed, snag Womack.

P.S. Just a few months ago this guy was on the Red Sox roster, washed up and unable to make any impact on a fantasy season at all. Funny how things change.

I don't know. The guy is almost 35 years old and hasn't stolen more than 40 bases since 2000. He has been platooning for a few years now. I'm waiting at least a month before I remove the fluke tag.

Oh really, is it June 1 or June 2? What if he all of a sudden goes 0-6 on May 29th? Fluke then, or semi-fluke?

I didn't know there were objective rules??

Play the hot hand on Womack. Hell if he keeps his OBP around .330 he should score 100 runs. If he's not killing your teams average he's worht having around while he's on the cards

Womack was unhealthy last year, so that was the fluke season. He's been rock steady aside from that going back to '97. Hits around .270-.280 overall, but significantly higher vs. righties. Expect LaRussa to sit him occasionally vs. lefties, in addition to just giving him the spot day off. SB's should be in the 30-40 range. 2B/SS eligibility increases his value.

He's great trade bait right now, by the way. Your league's transaction wire should indicate which owners are already in the panic mode. Proceed from there and reap the rewards.

Wasnt Royce Clayton looking like an All-Star at this point last year as well? And we all know where he ended up.
