Pat Burrell and his OBP

Postby NZF » Sun May 06, 2007 10:32 pm

avge. of .264 and OBP .440

Not exactly frightening as a hitter nowdays with 1 HR in 87 AB's so far this season, yet he's getting walked at an alarming rate. 30 free passes now, most in the majors. Are Rowand and Helms that bad?

Judging by the Phillies recent moves THEY probably don't realize what they have.

You mean their dealings with Abreu and Myers?
I agree.


Would have been one of the most feared 1-5's in baseball.
Heck even then you can live with Burrell playing 6th.

As for Pat the Bat. I don't know what to think of him anymore.
I own him in a couple of leagues, and after his last two weeks, I am benching him in favor of Chris Young (ARZ) for the time being in one league. In the other I don't know what to do yet. Probably just give him away. He was dropped in a couple leagues I thought I saw somewhere. shame.

I still say he hits 25 HR's, but he batting average is fast approaching the Kouzmanoff line.

I hate this guy, but I drafted for OF late and got screwed. Rios, Drew, Burrell.

This guy is like Edmonds but with out the age/injury excuse now.

and somehow the guy walked 4 times today. FOUR?!?

I drafted him hoping he'd pull a Beltran and bounce back after receiving a fat contract. So far he's proving me wrong and I'm benching him as well for the likes of Byrnes.
