What is Chone Figgins LONG-TERM value?

Postby Joe Mauer » Thu Jun 10, 2004 12:22 pm

My 5x5 Roto team is a disaster this season and he can not save me. However, I can pick him up for $10 and possibly carry him over next season at $11 and carry him over at 3B if he plays 1/3 of his 2004 season games at 3B. So, what kind of playing time do you see him getting next season? A starter or a bench player? Thanks! ;-D

I personally don't think he'll have a ton of value next season. Glaus should be back and healthy, plus GA, Guillen and Vlad have the outfield secured. So unless he takes over for Eckstein or Kennedy at SS or 2B, I think he'll be a utility player.

Could be wrong, but those are my thoughts.

Isn't Glaus a free agent at the end of this year?

Yes.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Glaus will not likely be back with the Angels. Dallas McPherson is going to be the 3B next season.

As for Figgins, he's got a strong possibility of starting at 2B or SS. If he ends up in the .300 range with 30 SB, he will clearly be #1 on the depth chart at some position next season.

I think hell be the AL J Pierre , especially with that team, You need guys like that on your team, Halos will get his bat in the lineup.

Only diff is i dont hell give you the consisten .300 avg Pierre does, but hell steal a ton of bases & score a ton of runs

i'm hoping he would take over in the middle infield. i guess we won't know for sure until some time next year, unless the angels make a trade, which i don't expect.

Scouting report from 2003 says Figgins should be a .270-.285 hitter with neglible power and 40+ SB at peak career value. I wouldn't argue with that.

As an OF he is the mid-point between Dave Roberts and Juan Pierre. If he has infield eligibility obviously his value is far greater.
