h2h Corner ~ Katy Perry (Hot ‘N’ Cold Fantasy Baseball) All-Stars

Players get hot and cold over a seven-day period, it’s as sure as the samples are small.

That is why Katy created the Hot ‘N’ Cold All-stars.

‘Cause you’re hot…you’re yes…you’re in…you’re up

Austin Jackson – Action Jackson (Ajax for short) over the last seven days flashed 2010’s brilliance: 11/29 with a home, a steal and seven RBIs. That brought his yearly RBI total to…16.  But no one owns him for those numbers. To date,Jackson is just 4/6 in SB attempts, after going 27/33 last season. Clearly his speed pace is way down, mostly do to his complete inability to get on base (.227 average, .284 OBP). Not surprisingly, his .396 BABip last year is being replaced by a somewhat more human .327. A large portion of that has to do with more ground and fly balls and less line drives. He is being pitched roughly the same as last year and isn’t swinging and missing more or making demonstrably less contact. Is the last seven days a sign of resurgence? Sort of, I think. He’s not this bad of a hitter; he’ll get to .260 with his typical seven percent walk rate (i.e., .315 OBP). He’ll get 22-25 steals. In a lot of leagues, that is useful.

h2h Corner ~ Keep, Trade or Drop: Grady Sizemore, Justin Upton, Carl Crawford

I’m a huge Grady Sizemore fan for so many reasons. His name is Sizemore, he runs, he hits, he beat Greg Oden to the punch, etc. Unfortunately, he isn’t so young anymore (just five months younger than me, putting him 28 in August). Until last year, Sizemore was incredible durable (he averaged 160 games from 2006 – 2008). During that same span he also averaged 28 HRs and 30 SBs. Battling injuries in 2009, he never really got started – still he managed 18 HRs and 13 SBs in only 106 games. Sizemore should be healthy in 2010, which should restore him to his second round worth. Given his age, he likely has at most five elite seasons left. Continue reading

h2h Corner ~ Keep, Trade or Drop: Drew Stubbs, Matt LaPorta, Kyle Blanks?

A few facts I know:

Drew Stubbs only played in 42 games last year, but he didn’t disappoint. He smacked eight HRs, stole 10 bases and batted .267. In 423 minor league games, Stubbs hit .269 with a .364 OBP, while hitting 28 HRs and stealing 121 bases. Stubbs will turn 26 in October. Continue reading
