Fantasy Beat: Hot Spots: Outfield

10

Rob McQuown

Rob McQuown channels both Lou Piniella and Steve Stone in deciphering the Tyler Colvin situation. More importantly, two new Value Picks are analyzed for fantasy value.

Is Steve Stone'd, or Just Stupid? Here's a (very) loose translation of the recent war on words between analyst Steve Stone and manager Lou Piniella, regarding Value Pick outfielder Tyler Colvin:

Steve Stone: “Play the kid, already. He shouldn't be sitting on the bench. Jason Heyward is playing every day; Mike Stanton is playing every day; so should Tyler Colvin.”

Homo sapiens emerged from Neanderthal man about 38,000 BCE. It took another 31,500 years or so for the Sumerians to invent the wheel. There were 315 centuries of watching stones rolling downhill, fallen trees being pushed aside, dates falling off the table, before experience and observation could be transformed into principles (Hey! Round stuff rolls! Round stuff that rolls might be useful to have!) and those principles then put into practice (We should try to make round stuff that rolls!). Of course, as with all good ideas, some people never bought in. The Western Hemisphere did without the wheel until the Europeans showed up. Either the locals were too busy eating the corn to roll the cobs or they just didn't think much of wheels. As with the wheel, so too with the amateur draft, which kicked off in 1965 as a way to finally bring down those annoyingly persistent Yankees. Many of the lessons that have been taken away the draft--high school pitchers are riskier bets as college pitchers, don't draft high school catchers, etc.--were there to be found after the first few drafts, but it took several more years before experience hardened into a set of principles.

Losing David Justice isn't good news, considering I'm not a big Scott Hatteberg guy, but I am a believer when it comes to Eric Byrnes, so I guess I'm happy. Outfield defense is always going to be an issue for a unit that has Terrence Long in center field and either Justice or Jeremy Giambi in a corner. While I'm not arguing for Byrnes to play every day, he does give the A's a hitter who puts hard-hit balls into play, who can cover an outfield corner well, and basically give the bottom of the lineup someone who can help score some of the other more walk-inclined hitters batting higher up.
