  • Spring training and fantasy baseball

    I admit it, when I draft, I take a look at spring stats.

    Thought I'd share some things that have caught my eye.

    Jose Contreras, NYY, sp - was awesome toward the latter part of last year - this spring, he has 23 Ks in 14.2 IP and has only given up 10 hits.

    Esteban German, OAK, 2b - who? This guy was slated to be a reserve for OAK. He has been stuck behind some solid MIs. But now, Mark Ellis is out and this kid is hitting well in spring and he runs like the wind.

    Bobby Crosby, OAK, ss - this is the rookie that the A's let Tejada go for. He had 20+ HR and 20+ SBs last year in the minors. He is tearing it up this spring, hitting .349 in 43 ABs.

    Rich Harden, OAK, sp - struggling mightily this spring.

    Roger Clemens, HOU, sp - given up 19 H in 14 IP yet has 13 K and just a 1.93 ERA. Supposedly his velocity is down.

    Carlos Beltran, KC, of - wow. Hitting .487 with a .897 SLG% in 39 ABs.

    Ray Lankford, Kerry Robinson, STL, of - both have 4 SBs in the spring. Normally these guys don't run ... unless they are trying to make the club.

    Troy Glaus, ANA, 3b - coming off a down year in which he hurt his rotator cuff but hitting .350 with 3 HRs in the spring.

    Jose Guillen, ANA, of - this dude came out of nowhere last year and has SIX HRs already this spring.

    But by far my favorite update:

    Donovan Osborne, NYY, sp - this pu$$y leads the majors in spring training wins with 4. CLASSIC!

            I've got Crosby and Beltran in my main league.

            Managed to get Contreras in the Lounge league.

                German ... that pitcher dude ... was supposed to be good last year. When I had an injury to someone last year, my budddy talked me into picking him up.

                Is he the same one that was with some crap team last year?

                  You are thinking of Franlyn German, DET p. He's supposed to throw about 98 mph.

                      Thanks. Franklyn. Frank.

                        German's high-90s fastball and nasty splitter are filthy pitches, but his command of them was rather poor last season. Predicted by many to assume the closer's role in Detroit, the right-hander was a huge disappointment, walking more batters than innings and posting a 6.05 ERA. Even a late-season stint in the minors didn't straighten German out -- he posted a 11.68 ERA once the Tigers recalled him. He'll compete for a bullpen role again this spring, but he won't even be a sleeper to close in Detroit unless he shows significant improvement with his control.
                        So far this spring... 9 games, 0 starts, 11 innings, 13 K's, 2 losses and an ERA of 6.55, batters hitting 326 off him.

                          Clearly you don't realize the Brewers just signed Dave Veres.

                          They have got a sweet bullpen - if only the starters can get it to them.

                          I hear the local nine has Jarrod Washburn as their ace. Ugh!
