Chone Figgins (2B) Ana
Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Chone Figgins will enter spring training as the starting second baseman while Adam Kennedy spends the first month or two of the season recovering from knee surgery, according to the LA Times.


My question would be does anyone think if he is hot during this time will Scioscia stay with Figgins?

Sounds to me that Kennedy will be the likely starter once he comes back and knock Figgins back to the bench if the Angels lineup stay healthy.

Is he worth keeping for $10?

Well he should get hist 2B eligibility back for '05/'06, but that's about all that's certain now. I guess it doesn't do much good if he's not getting the PT. As a side note, is Kennedy really that much better than Figgins? I don't get to see the Angels that much so I don't get to see him everyday. :-?

To me Figgins is much better than Kennedy. My thought is I wouldn't keep Figs for $10, but I'd think about getting him back at the draft.

If he gets the first month or two in at 2B and does well, there is a very real chance one of the Angels other fragile players gets hurt opening the door for more Chone time. G. Anderson could easily go down, and McPhearson might not work out at 3B.
Let's go Mets!

Agree with previous poster--between McPherson and an OF injury, odds are better than even that there will be a job for Figgins when Kennedy comes back. But if you are talking about keeping, I can see how would want the odds more toward 100%.

those are certainly good news for figgins. however even if figgs plays great in the first month, i believe the angels will play kennedy when he comes back. it's kinda tough to predict who will get injured, other than austin kearns :-b , but i see a chance for figgins to play, maybe not everyday, but play enough to lead the team in stolen bases.

as for keeping him at $10...don't think u can afford to keep him at that price with PT issues.

that's a tough choice for you to make. I think either way he will have some value but I wouldn't want him for $10 unless he is going to remain a starter. I'd probably pass and try to draft someone else for the $10 and see if he's available later on.

I think kennedy is a fine defensive 2b and a solid hitter. It'd suprise me if they bench up his return. I'm rooting Super Utility Man to take Eckstein job because he's crap.

Figgins is a nice utility guy to have on your roster but not at that price. :-?

i think eckstein is holding on to the SS spot as the team mascot, I swear, there is no other reason for him to be playing there.
