Flukes...

Was Mora's 04 season really a fluke? His 03 was what i thought was a fluke, but his 04, which improved, was fairly close to his 03. So was 04 really a fluke, when it reflected his 03?

03 avg 317
04 avg 340

03 ops 905
04 ops 973

03 rc/27 6.87
04 rc/27 7.54

Both seasons were way off the norm from Mora's past. Mora has improved, although he's been very lucky with his hit % at 36% and 37%.

The thing that will hurt Pavano is in Montreal, his hr/9 was at 1.1. But because Pro Player is a pitcher's paradise, his hr/9 shrunk to 0.7. He no longer has that luxury.

I'm surprised so many doubt Beltre. Here's why he wasn't a fluke.
1. Finally healthy, with his weight back up to 230.
2. Took the ball to rf for the 1st time.
3. Eye rate at .61 after 3 straight years under .40.
4. Did this at 26, now at 27 he's at his prime.
5. His 2nd half was a monster,

Ops 943/1.065
hrs 19/29
rbis 52/69
rc/27 6.62/8.69

Hopefully, this will mean extra coming from a Giants fan. Pedro Feliz got his share of the fantasy spotlight once he gained shortstop eligibility last season, and some people still think he is a top prospect.

Watching just about every single Giants game, I can tell you that Feliz is by no means a keeper. He will be adiquate at best. It seemed like half his production came in Coors, although that is 2:00AM math.

Do not anchor any of your starting positions with Pedro Feliz next season unless you are in an NL-only league.

I don't think Johnny Damon's season was a fluke. He's had yrs like that before (except for the 1 bad year in Oakland). He's finally learned patience and his OBP has been increasing each year. He leads off for a powerful lineup.

Hafner: A career year at 27 years of age in only his third major league season? He had only amassed 394 plate apperances prior to 2004. I'm a bit more optomistic about his future.

It seems like every year there are some people who think Damon will suck, and it never happens. I don't know if he can put up those same power numbers again next year, though it is possible. Even if his HR numbers fall, he is still a decent option at OF. A lock at 100+ Runs is good in my book.
