Anyone in Seattle hear about Richie Sexson?

Postby bostongurlie » Thu Feb 17, 2005 8:53 pm

Last year he broke my heart. I'm thinking the guys in my league won't think to draft him so I could probably get him later on in the draft. I just read the post about guys who have broken your heart twice... should I chance it on Sexson? Does anyone have any insight on his year coming up?

Thanks

they keep saying he is healthy, I also know that Seattle did some pretty hardcore physical tests before signing the contract.

That being said, I really like the guy even though he screwed me last year (not to mention I had an early trade offer Sexson for Rolen that I turned down).

What's the earliest I should consider drafting him? I'm in a typical 12 man H2H league, with scorings of H 2b 3b HR Ave SB W WHIP ERA SO CG SHO

I play with a bunch of Boston-central minded guys. I want to target better guys that wouldnt occur to them to draft. I'll route for my Sox no matter what, I don't need them on my team :-B

As a longtime M's fan, I guarantee you Beltre and Sexson will bomb this year. We've never made a good move in our team history, except signing Ichiro (though that was really just a "whoever spends the most money wins" situation).

As long as he learns to give the keys to someone else after the game celebration....he should have pretty good numbers in Seattle.... :-)

I'm interested to see where he's picked too. Prior to the injury Sexson was known as a low injury risk and he was going to a great hitters park (the BOB). In the 12 team drafts I was in, he usually went in the 4th round.

So after the injury and the move to Safeco I'd think that he'll be available in the 6th or 7th. If he comes back at 100% he'll be a great value there.

In a recent piece in one of the Seattle papers Sexson said the shoulder is 100%.

Worked well enough to pound a few 12-ounce curls, anyhow.

Ha, I was hoping to get the first drunkard joke in but I was too late. I think hes a good mid ranked first baseman, grouped in along with the likes of Derek Lee and Hafner. He should give you a lot of RBIs since that lineup is so good.

He should be good, but I am worried about his shoulder. It could go out on any check swing.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.
