What's Gotten Into Milton Bradley

Postby YankFan51 » Sat Jun 21, 2003 1:52 am

When I originally looked at his numbers, I thought he wasn't that valuable since he wasn't stealing bases. Now, I turn around and look, he's got 12 steals. Is this guy worth a pickup for 5 category help?

He stole 3 friday. I think he stole a couple the night before. I don't think he will steal like that very often, but if guys steal a few, they get more chances.

The downside with him is that he isn't going to get a lot of RBI chances, and nobody can regularly hit him home. He would be much more valuable in a better line-up. Still, a guy that can hit .320+ and contribute acceptably in 2-3 other categories is always worth looking at.

I wouldn't want to start him every day, but as a fill in or platoon utility guy he has value.

I just added him in a league with a 20 player acquisition limit. I'm hoping that someone in front of him can start getting on base frequently. He bats for a high AVG and can hit the XBH.

I think over his last three games he's gone 9 for 15 with a homer and five stolen bases to go with 3 or 4 RBI. I don't think he'll steal that many bases throughout the year, but now that he's stolen five I'm already pleased with his production in that category. I see him as more valuable than a Scott Posednik.

How about that Milton Bradley? .346, 6 hrs, 30 rbis and 12 steals! i would suggest picking him up, especially in a keeper league for he is only 25 years old. he as well as the entire cleveland lineup will only improve in the next coming years. i like this kids future.

;-D He's playing great......get him as fast as you can....if he is available???? Even without any support....he's hitting and doing great in running..... ;-D
Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...
Anytime you have a 50-50 pick between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong!
