Austin Kearns - WORTHLESS!

Postby Ry-Guy » Sat Jun 05, 2004 1:02 pm

Anyone else extremely frustrated by Austin Kearns' worthless season so far? Between injuries and lack of production, Kearns is looking like one of this season's biggest busts. I'm banking on a big second half but this guy better start playing soon and start putting together some numbers.

if you need offensive help you can safely drop kearns. I am in a very competitive 12 team league and dumped him after he missed games due to his blister; no one has touched him. there are probably better FA options who should have kearns bench spot on your team.

I may be crazy but I can't give up on him just yet. If he gets healthy, he'll hit. I've kept him all year. When he comes back from this current hand problem, I'll see how he does. Another injury after that and I'll probably drop him.

I like him because he's hit well in the past and he'll bat after Casey and Griffey in the Cincy lineup.

In-between his last two injuries, he had a great stretch of 5 games, going 8 for 18 (.444), with 8 RBI.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'

If J.D. Drew can find a way to stay healthy, so can Kearns. Remember, Austin was leading the NL in HRs for quite some time heading into the All-Star break last season. In shallow leagues, I would surely stash him away on the bench. This is a good time to try to deal for him in deep leagues too. And keeper league owners should be drooling over the price that they should be able to get him at.

Austin Kearns makes JD Drew look like Cal Ripken.

until kearns plays 3/4 of a full season I will not touch him. You'd think he was on the cover of madden or something the way he gets injured every second game!

As much as it is tiring to see Kearns not play recently, I think it is more annoying to see a few of these threads every day. Nothing against who started this thread, but there have been quite a few already on Kearns. Why not just post of them instead of starting a new one?

When I used to read every post in the Cafe, seeing duplicate threads got annoying. But now that I only check up every few days, I am glad that some like this float around frequently enough for me to take note of.

So long as there are not two very similar topics on page one, there is not too much reason to becoming bothered.
