Is he that bad defensively :-?

My guess if he keeps going like this he will still see plenty of playing time.

It doesn't matter so much when your OBP is .400

Bellhorn is a moneyball player, trust me, with a OBP @400 epstein will keep him at the top of that line up infront of all those big bats, especially since he's versatile defensively, you can put him at any infield position.

And i'd tap my break on bellhorn, he's known to be streaky...enjoy some big games, then a couple weeks of straight 0/3 0/2 nights but with walks...and a run here and there. i can't stand how a guy has a big night, then you got somebody running on the board singing his praises....let him produce with some consistency, he's having a hot month. and definitely worth a waiver pick up, or some insurance if you have an extra bench spot.

Hes having an Awesome month & 2nd base is real thin,. HE PLAYS EVERY game which is alot to say with all thee other guys takin nights off, Im just saying hes a great option @ 2nd base for now for people in need

I dont Play in yahoo Public leagues where u got teams of Soriano PUjols & Helton, I play in deep compeitive leagues, where Bellhorn can be a real asset for ya

If your in a deep league(14+ owners), or AL only, then he's an immediate pick up no doubt.

if your in a mixed 12 team, he's a very good #2 2b....and worth a start while he's hot.

thats just my opinion.

I've been struggling to cover for Marcus Giles since he went down but it looks like Bellhorn is my man. Mackowiak has been hot but my league counts walks and Bellhorn looks like just what the doctor ordered.

The Horn will lose some AB's when Nomar comes back but I would imagine Pokey Reese is more likely to be the odd man out.
