Jose Bautista

Postby mtw02 » Fri Jun 04, 2010 3:32 pm

Time to sell high on him?

Or are we looking at a possible 35/100 kind of guy here? Who is buying this?

I guess the ugly side could be a .250 average.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

Of course the problem with Bautista is what can you sell him for. You're probably better off holding the guy unless you get a starting caliber player in return.

I know 2009 Mark Reynolds didn't exactly come out of nowhere like this, but maybe this homer binge continues in a similar way. Considering that we are now 2 months into the season, I don't think Bautista falls off the earth a la Shelton from a few years ago.

Bautista's HR/FB is 22%, his career 11%. He might do it for another week, maybe another month, shoot, maybe two months, but at some point regression will set in.

I'm thinking he pulls a Brandon Inge with the early season power and then incredibly sucks the entire 2nd half

My problem believing this guy is that hes sucked for the past 6 years at multiple levels of major league baseball. The only time he's ever had an ISO close to this is a 5 game stint with the Pirates AAA team in 2008. He is what he is, a guy having the streak of his career.

Everyone knows he'll regress. Pointing it out isn't useful.

The point about what can be had for him is perhaps best....selling high only makes sense relative to what you can get vs. the value of keeping him. Trading difficulty/activity varies from league to league.

Even Grey's argument re: his fly ball rate - will he regress to his norm or somewhere in between? In which case, there is a good shot he'll be a 30+ hr guy. Why sell that? In most leagues this guy is a 4th OF and that's incredible value.

Also working in his favor - he's improved his walks and cut down on his strikeouts. His BABIP is currently below his career average. According to Fangraphs, he showed some of this burst last September (and it continued in spring training). Further I've read about how he's changed his stance - perhaps there is something to this? All this bodes well to 'even' out the insane pace and fears of him falling off a cliff.

Fair/unfair? Am I drunk on the Bautista punch and missing something?
