BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2005 Self is just a marginal prospectónot hitting in the AFL didn't help himóbut it's worth noting that the Astros are going to pay Jeff Bagwell a billion jillion dollars for not much more performance than they'd get by handing Self the job. His plate discipline is real and he could be good for 40 doubles and 15 homers, maybe a bit more, through his peak. A Mark Grace/Wally Joyner hitter with average defense lets you spend money elsewhere. You could even platoon Self with Royce Huffman, a comparable player who bats right-handed and has been stuck at New Orleans for two years.
