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

Jordan Schafer – 2009 must seem like a long time ago for Schafer (incidentally a piss-cheap beer one can buy on their way to casinos in Connecticut). In ’09, he started off with a bang before ending up .204/.313/.287 and then there was the suspension. With Nate McLouth being his typical injured/crappy self, Schafer has gotten some run and, well, run with it: 11/31 with eight runs and four steals over the last seven days. He’s at .256/.330/.341 for the season, which is actually better than what he was doing at AAA. He already has seven steals (albeit in 10 attempts) so he should be owned in most deep leagues. However, I find it hard to believe he’ll continue to post an 88% contact rate and miniscule swinging strike percentage. At a certain point, he’ll stop getting on base and then stop stealing. Ride while he’s hot, drop when he’s not.

Scott Sizemore – I’ve always like Grady and Tom, which, by the transitive property, makes me intrigued by Scott. Over the last seven days (8/19) Scott is making Billy Beane look like the guy featured in Moneyball, not this 1987 Topps card. Sizemore, just 26, has absolutely lit up AAA pitching throughout his career. However, his major league numbers .243/.327/.335 leave a bit to be desired. The OBP for a middle infielder isn’t bad, but it has come with no power and no speed. Right now his BABIP (.365) seems a lad high for a guy with a 17.5% line drive rate, so I can’t imagine him continuing to put up a .276/.376 line. The extra base hits haven’t been there (.333 Slugging percentage), so his upside is minimal. He’s a deep leaguer, don’t be fooled by his hot start with the A’s.
