the final countdown
now that we've caught up with the news, except for rafael furcal's bargain contract, we can finish the player evaluations we've been doing.

this last list is the guys that didn't get on any of the position lists, either because they're dh's or because doug doesn't update his positions very well. nothing against doug; he provides a valuable service.

i also red this personal interest story. i'm going through a phase now where i link everything i reed.

reed red reed red reed red reed red.


Player aab w k hr 23 wal con pow avg
huff,aubrey 605 62 74 29 29 .093 .878 .109 .297


power was a little down this year, but it'll come back. definitely a strong contributor.


ortiz,david 590 79 133 41 50 .118 .775 .199 .301


yes. difference maker.


durazo,erubiel 513 65 104 22 36 .112 .797 .142 .321


strong contributor. impressive work in a tough park.


martinez,edgar 489 60 107 12 23 .109 .781 .092 .263


tough last year with injuries and decline. thanks for a great career, edgar.


hafner,travis 488 85 111 28 44 .148 .773 .191 .311


these are basically the same numbers as ortiz, but less playing time. so he's a strong contributor.


young,dmitri 393 39 71 18 25 .090 .819 .134 .272


dmitri young dmitri young had a couple good years in there. now he's a guy.


phelps,josh 372 29 93 17 21 .072 .750 .136 .251


not likely to develop enough skill to be more than a guy.

that bp article i linked actually has a lot of stuff i want to comment on. like the idea that andy marte is ready for the majors (he's not). or the idea that jonny gomes can hit. if the choice is between jonny gomes and joey gathright, it's not a tough one. it's joey gathright.

but they also said some good things. brian mccann looks like a good prospect. and guillermo quiroz will hit in the majors.


surhoff,b.j. 344 31 46 8 13 .083 .866 .070 .309


still a guy. bj's ability to make contact has made him usable for a long time.


pena,wily_mo 336 28 108 26 11 .077 .679 .162 .259


wily mo finally broke through! that's a pile of home runs. expect the contact to go up. he's young. up-and-comer.


garciaparra,nom 323 29 30 9 24 .082 .907 .113 .308


yeah nomar you gotta rate him at least a strong contributor. i mean look at that hitting. the man can hit. even when he is battling injuries all season. i hope he's healthy next year because he has been underrated his whole career. even though he's been highly rated. but that's another article.


sierra,ruben 313 25 55 17 13 .074 .824 .116 .244


guy.


griffey,ken 302 46 67 20 18 .132 .778 .162 .253


ken griffey can still hit the ball hard, but he's just a guy.


hairston,jerry 291 37 29 2 20 .113 .900 .084 .303


that's good contact. must develop power to be more than a guy.


morneau,justin 282 30 54 19 17 .096 .809 .158 .271


up-and-comer.


lecroy,matthew 266 20 60 9 14 .070 .774 .112 .269
fullmer,brad 260 30 30 11 20 .103 .885 .135 .233


good conpow, but small sample size.


walker,larry 259 57 57 17 20 .180 .780 .183 .298
thomas,frank 241 70 57 18 16 .225 .763 .185 .271


walker and thomas are obviously strong contributors if they get full playing time. it'll be interesting to see what they do in 2005.


salmon,tim 190 16 41 2 7 .078 .784 .060 .253


he's finally reached the cliff.


pickering,calvi 124 18 42 7 9 .127 .661 .195 .246


calvin pickering strikes out too much.

yes now we're done. now we can do ranking lists for next year. and all-star teams. and all that fun stuff. wake the wife.
