Is Bernie washed up?

Postby Quaker » Sat May 29, 2004 1:05 pm

He's been bad this year, wasn't great last year, but he's only 2 years removed from a 200 hit season. Does he have anything left, and is he worth a look?

Is he worth a #1 ww priority?

Not worth a #1. He isn't completely washed up but not worth a spot in your outfield unless in deep leagues. It's sad. He's one of the only Yankees I liked.

He isn't worth picking up, he is getting old and is having injury problems.

He's not worth a #1 priority. However, as a 4th OFer on a fantasy team, I don't think he's a bad option in the Yankees' lineup. I also don't think he's washed up. He's not a .330 hitter. But he could hover around .290-.300. The guy is only 34, which isn't that old.

His bat speed has slowed so much.

Don't touch him.
Does not even resemble the Bernie of two years ago. Injuries have slowed him down so much

Would you use #1 priority to get Matt Stairs? Expect similar stats at the year's end. Stairs may in fact produce at a better clip.

Williams was great. He's not anymore. If it weren't for the fact that he was in NY, he'd be a non-entity

Williams is a player to watch...don't pick him up until he shows something though. And he's not worth waiver priority (not that waiver priority is particularly valuable, cause it isn't).

I would agree with much of what you wrote except a few things. He is almost 36 and he is an old 35. He has been banged up over the past few years. Keep in mind that he is typically a slow starter. ;-)
