Okay, in a fit of frustration because of my inability to pick up a wireless signal during the Razzball Commenters slow mock draft last night, I started doing my own rankings and projections system for my own reference. While looking over the CHONE projections, I came across the name of Mike Hessman, who apparently is a 29 year old AAAA 3B prospect for the Tigers. Anyway, I've never heard of him, but I sorta like the idea of him.

The CHONE line for Mike Hessman (446ab):
31/68/78/.222/4

http://www.fangraphs.com/statss.aspx?playerid=1808&position=3B

Ok, so he's a serious Balboni hacker and he makes Jack Cust and Dallas McPherson touch themselves at night, but he's knocking at the door of DH-dom and could be the everyday 3B if Inge sucks or if Sheffield gets hurt again. Hessman could put up respectable numbers.

Anyway... most of you know the love affair I have with AAAA-type guys like Nelson Cruz and McPherson, so I will be bringing you a Hessman Trophy watch throughout the 2009 season.

Peace.
PJ

UPDATE: Forgot to add that he hit 74 HR between 2007 and 2008 in AAA and with the Tigers in 899 ab or a HR every 12.1 ab.

UPDATE #2: You can imagine a guy like this being a nice filler if your regular 3B or DH goes on the DL.

The playing time Chone gives him is very questionable.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Well, have you ever thought for a second that Mike Hessman is 90% heart and 10% bench press? Think about that for a second, and then re-evaluate what you just said.

Mike Hessman doesn't listen to the prognosticators and the Fantasy Baseball Pundits out there. He listens to MIKE HESSMAN.

Its not just you. It's a mutation of that whole owners look like their dogs thing.
Also, so often it's a letdown when you see a player pic for the first time.
Mike Hessman is a pretty good baseball name. The face? Not so much.

You don't want to see George Foster.

I like where this thread is going. There is nothing like another's misfortune for cheap laughs.
Especially when you're as good-looking as the three of us obviously are.
