Using the Lew Ford

Postby perlick29 » Fri Feb 18, 2005 11:17 pm

I'm interested to hear your opinions/projections on him. This much I know about him. His april was insane, his september was good. Can he exceed or put up similar numbers to last year?

I didn't know he managed to get 569 AB's last year? Will he be able to find that many AB's?

Thanks gents.

I have him ranked as the 41st best outfielder. 89 runs, 15 HRs, 71 RBIs, 20 SBs and a .291 average. A decent 3rd outfielder.

He's the starting DH. He'll be switching with Stewart between DH and OF.

12 homers, 75 RBIs, 90 runs, 18 SBs and a .300 AVG is where he should be.

Interesting. Who do you have from 41-50?

These seem like pretty good projections for Ford....

Lew Ford is a player who will be extremely consistant in the majors.

Peak: .300, 20/20 guy

Low: .290 15/15 guy

He will never have "breakout" or an "off" year. He will always put up #'s in that range.

That being said, those #'s still look pretty good, and I'm sure real life managers love that. B-)

I like Lew Ford a lot. The only thing that concerns me is his batting average. After hitting .419 in april, he then hit .290, .287, .274, .272, and .276 in May, June, July, August, and September, respectively. That leads me to believe that he might be more of a .280 hitter than a .300 hitter.

Those sound pretty good to me. I think I've got him down for a little lower AVG (.290ish) but a little more power and SB's. ;-D
