It's when some lazy Yahoo employee decides to get off his fat rump and add the player. By the time they add him, he'll be optioned back to the Minors probably :-t .

that's not cool, hombre. i have heard the rios is a vernon wells clone with power/speed/avg capabilities. i have heard that gathright is faster than crawford.

my interest in comparison is in the probability that either one of these guys will start to light it up this year, next year, or later. jackal, your take is pretty helpful. i have watched some of rios' recent at-bats, and he is actually starting to look pretty sweet.

gathright (to me, anyway) still looks overmatched...until he's on base. there are a lot of good, young outfielders out there, now. crazy times for positions 7, 8 and 9. 8-o

lol, don't take it seriously benjapage. i didn't mean it as an insult or anything like that. but still asking that when players have nothing in common seems to show not much knowledge about them.

here are some good comparisons:

Gathright is pretty much a Pierre player. He is small like him and is the fastest player in the majors now. But as you pointed out he still looks over matched at times, though he did have a real good game last night. His real value is only in SB's, but there is no sure thing that he will stay up in the majors. He is up right now so Rocco doesn't have to play. The Craw/Pod comparison to me isn't as good as the Pierre one, cause Gathright will never develope power. But those 2 have a good chance to develope more then they have showed, which Pod is doing this year.

I think a real good comparison to Rios that no one I have seen mention is Baldelli. Rocco is 6'4" 187 and Rios 6'5" 194. Both are fairly young and both of their bodies haven't developed fully yet. So right now, both don't have much power and are mainly line drive hitters. Rios after getting off to a slow start has starting hitting a lot better of late. I comparison I have heard that many scouts feel, is that when he fills out they could see Juan Gonzalez power. They say Juan was just as skinny earlier in his career, but then added muscle and became a big power hitter. That in mind is why I don't think Rios will help you much in any 1 cat. Once he gets better hitting wise and his power comes along, he could be really good. Also he is quite fast, but as most know the Jays don't really run to much.

Hope that helps some, and sorry about the other comment. Wasn't trying to be mean but it probably came out that way.

Another good night...2/4 and 1SB, and still not available in Yahoo leagues. This is ridiculous :-t

Gathright hit .273 with two walks, six runs scored and three stolen bases in seven games. His departure means that Fred McGriff and Robert Fick will go back to sharing time at DH. If McGriff continues to struggle, the Rays could release him and bring Gathright back right after the All-Star break. Jul. 2 - 6:36 pm et



arggggh

Bad move, I'd like to see this kid stay up longer. But he should be back up later in the year, along side Upton.

i am playing against the owner that picked him up....

this kid burned me for two steals already...

glad to see him go...

if only the owner will not find out that he has been demoted until after this period ends.....and keeps him in as a starter...

Gathright was completely overmatched on anything with velocity inside. He isn't ready yet. He does sure look like he'll be a lot of fun to watch down the road, and his SB's could be amazing...but I'm not sold on his ability to hit big league pitching just yet.

But now that he has gotten a taste and knows what he needs to work on, he could be more ready next time.

Rios won't have near as much value as Gathright this year.
