February Grey <3 Braun?

Postby nyphilsphan » Sat Sep 04, 2010 7:25 am

I watched him strike out against cuddle boy Madson last night, so it got me wondering...has he fallen far enough with his HR and RBI totals to be underrated (and therefore targeted) next year?

I think he's hiding an injury and will be fine next year.

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!

I think his name alone keeps him from being underrated. He'd have to post a couple consecutive lousy seasons (like Grady Sizemore) to drop too far.

Speaking of Grady Sizemore, he may be a risky but potentially rewarding bargain next year if he's available in the very late rounds like Josh Hamilton was this year...

Maybe....but while Hamilton is an injury risk, Grady is an injury with that strikes out like crazy even when he is healthy.

Braun's ISO has dropped every year since he entered the bigs.
.321, .268, .231 and currently .178.
I truly think Braun has changed his plate approach away from that of a power hitter. His K% is down to 16.8, the lowest it has ever been in his career. His contact rate is up to 82.9%, and O-Contact rate is 69.9% (9.9% higher than previous high)He is avoiding striking out. To do this, he is making more contact, especially on bad pitches. His BABIP is a little lower than his career mark, which explains why the average hasn't come too far up with the increase in contact. I think the decrease in power fits into the new Braun profile.
Food for thought.
