Joe Sheehan (Baseball Prospectus senior writer) on ESPN said that Hanley would have a season this year like a typical Alex Gonzalez (either one, cubs or our old one) season, low OBP, mediocre power, average to good defense. Said he was better physically than most and being a regular starting SS this early in his career will help his career later.

Waiver Wire Wednesday, talking fantasy baseball on the HotList:

 

Said they're worried about pitching, not hitting.

 

Willingham should hit 15-20 homers. Doesn't know why the Marlins would play him at C. Might be ROY.

 

Hanley doesn't K a lot. 25-30 SB speed now. Good fantasy player leading off. Will score runs (about 80 runs).

A-Gonz to Han-Ram offensively isn't a great comparison. Han-Ram has much better plate coverage and eye and steals bases. We'll see whether he can mash 15+ HR in a season...I doubt it this year, but we'll see.

 

 

It's Baseball Prospectus and their PECOTA stuff. There's a place for it but this season it's being relied on heavily by ESPN.
