Last year in my draft, I had my "Must Get Guy" marked as Mark Bellhorn. In a league that uses R/RBI/SB/OBP/SLG, this guy looked phenominal. He was going to be playing every day, and the previous year did this:
2002- 445 ABs, 86 runs, 56 RBIs, .374 OBP, .512 SLG, 7 SB, 144 Ks, 76 BBs.
His prior two years, he had OPS numbers of .453 and .421, but 2002 was his first real "full time" year. Bellhorn played 2B, 3B and SS which made him a phenominal bench value.
This year, I'm looking at Cintron. As a 2B/3B he also has the multi-position elligibility. But his stats remind me a lot of Bellhorns'.
Cintron 2003: 448 ABs, 70 runs, 51 RBIs, .359 OBP, .489 SLG, 2 SBs, 33Ks, 29 BBs.
His prior year he had an OPS of .615
The only real differnce between the two is the number of strikeouts and walks. Bellhorn struck out 28% of the time and walked about 15% while Cintron struck out 7% and walked 6%,
Am I worrying over nothing? Is Cintron really different from Bellhorn (who was a sleeper on most lists at the beginning of 2003)?
