Well I definitely disagree here. He strikes out far too much to be anything better than a .275 hitter. Where is that breakout that was projected in 2004 then in 2005? It never came. It is time to rewrite those initial scouting reports on Marte. Even BA and other respected scouting reports are revisiting their opinions on Marte so it's not like I am just knocking him totally due to bias.
well wouldn't a 275 hitter be much better then the 240 glaus hitter you are comparing him to????? and why so much hostilities??? no where have I stated that I would not prefer Wright, I have just stated that Marte will be very valuable as well--in fact valuable enough to be a top option at 3b in all fantasy leagues in a very few years...
Yes a .275 hitter would be better than Glaus. I just used him as example. I think Marte will be better than but in the same mold as Glaus. I am not sure how this turned into an argument, where it's going or why I seem hostile. It's the middle of the work day though and I really need a beer.
