How Good Is M.Bradley?

Postby rippz » Sun Apr 25, 2004 6:21 pm

A guy in my keeper league just dropped Bradley. I dont know why, seeing as though he hit two Jacks today... He also dropped Kearns...

I have 3 waiver priority out of 12.... I was wondering if I should use it on either one? I think I could let Kearns go because he might clear waivers but with Bradley and his 2 Dongers today I dont think he will.

How good is Bradley? Can he go 20/20 .300?

Bradley could go 20 20 .310-.315 if he stays healthy, but considering he's never played more than 100 games in a season thats iffy.

That said I have Bradley on a lot of my teams, riding the pine mostly right now tho.

Not much power but with him batting 3rd and bieng able top put the ball in play he should still have great RBI and OBP #'s.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I like Bradley he's kind of a poor man's Beltran.

I am not kidding when I say that either, in a keeper league I would use my waiver wire for him with the quickness.

I'd use your priority on him. Bradley is a 5-category player.

He hits for average (.321 last year)
He hits for power (2 HRs today)
He steals bases (17 last year)
He bats after Dave Roberts (good for RBIs)
He bats before Shawn Green (good for Rs)

Players like this tend to be underrated because they don't dominate in any one category. But a guy who's solid in all five is very valuable.

If your league is not a 5x5 league, he's also got good plate discipline which can help you in BB, K, OBP, OPS. He's really just a great all-around player with big upside.

The guy hits 2 HRs on my bench today. This after starting him every day for about 2 weeks. He'd cooled off so I plugged O. Cabrera in for him. I'm just doing a terrible job of trying to play matchups and start/bench hot/cool players. Did the exact same thing with Dunn last week when he had something like a 5RBI day. I like Bradley though, just wish he'd start stealing again.

I had him on my bench today as well, because I played Patterson, Ordonez, Podsednik, and, Crawford instead. I could have used those 2 HR's today.

Id definitely use my waiver priority to get him, he is worth it and should help your team. Its just a matter if you have any players worth dropping for him.
