Scrounging the fantasy baseball sales floor

11 06 2009

Inside today’s amNew York (my article is at the end of the post) are five legit buy low opportunities for fantasy baseball (along with five players who have disparate home/road statistics).

Howie Kendrick’s selection could be a real sticking point for some readers. My RotoExperts.com brothers had a lengthy e-mail chain last week debating the worthiness of Mr. Kendrick. His line drive percentage has crashed to the 12 percent level this year, which is bad news for a guy who makes his living off sharp liners for singles and doubles.

 

Kendrick might be colder than a Dick Cheney handshake, but he has the hitting tools to turn his year around.

 To me, fantasy owners brushing off Kendrick as a has-been is a classic case of short-term thinking. Here is a guy who batted .360 throughout the Minors (he played major parts of five seasons there) and who has hit .285, .322 and .306 in his first three Major League seasons. Yet, holding a .236 mark in his first two months of ’09 has apparently been all the evidence owners need to write him off. They’re going to let two months of poor hitting outweigh six years — Minors and Majors — of largely .300-ball? Really?

 

Anyway, Kendrick is just one of five picks in here. Read these and give me a payback on the fantasy league winnings you accumulate from this article. Please.
