Chone Figgins vs. Carl Crawford

Postby Precise » Mon Jun 28, 2004 7:15 pm

Obviously, Crawford is considered the better fantasy option. but by how much?

Figgins is having a consistent year, bats in one of the leagues most potent offenses, and steals a lot of bases.Do you think he'll put up numbers similar to Crawford the rest of the year?

I have both of them on my squad and i'm thinking of moving Crawford for a closer.

I like to think of Chone Figgins as Juan Pierre at 3rd base. If you're using Figgins at outfield, I would see if you could trade him off for a closer. If you were trading away Crawford, expect nothing less than a top tier closer. I suspect you could get a pretty good closer off a team in need of steals for Figgins.

figgins is horridly over rated,
other than the fact that he's playing at third, he's a poor mans alex sanchez,.... actually, both of them are bootleg carl crawfords.

Figgins isn't overrated at all. He steals bases, hits for average, produces runs and occasional RBI's, and is in one of the best offenses in baseball. Not overrated whatsoever.

yes, he is overrated - at least in this community.

every two weeks theres a "how many more games until figgins is available at SS, catcher, and DH?" thread

yes, he hits for average.
so does jerry hairston jr.
yes, he steals,
so does jerry hairston jr.
yes, he produces runs,
......who doesn't?


now if you'll excuse me, carl crawford just singled, stole 2nd, and advanced to third on a balk. then proceeded to score, against halladay.

i'm gonna go throw a party.

I would certainly hope Crawford would put up better numbers than Figgins, considering Crawford was drafted before round 10 while Figgins was a WW pickup for most. Oh and he does all those things better than Jerry Hairston Jr.

yeah he does them better than jerry hairston jr,
but not by too much.
and i for one, would much rather have hairston in my lineup, at 2nd base, and use my third base slot for an actual productive player, seeing how 3rd base is ultra deep this year, and 2nd base/SS is pretty weak.

the fact that his playing time is suspect, his position in the lineup fluctuates from 9th to 2nd to whatever, and also that the baltimore offense is extremely inconsistent, hairston has very little value at this point. When one of b.roberts and hairston is traded and someone is firmly entrenched at 2b, then their values are more stabilized.
