Elvis Andrus: Two Questions

Postby OaktownSteve » Tue Jan 08, 2013 12:25 pm

Why didn't he run last year? Will he start running again this year? He's dropped down to 9th round in early 12 team mixed mocks/rankings.

It seems like he doesn't run when Hamilton has a good year... With Hammy gone, it could be a good sign for Andrus... That is a bit anecdotal though...

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.

I think he will but I am not sure there is a good reason that he didn't run as much this year. The Hamilton theory is the best I have heard. You look at his numbers and he had a career high in avg and obp but a career low in SB. It just doesn't add up. Before last year he was a lock for 30 SB so I would expect him to get back to that level and maybe with Hamilton out of the picture he can push past 40.

Was at 75.5% success from 2009-2011. Fell to under 68% last year. Maybe got the red light, maybe had an undisclosed injury. He was 4th SS off the board last year. Looking like the 11th this year. It's really just the steals and maybe a slight downtick in runs with Hamilton out of the lineup.

On the plus side, the Rangers have been publicly talking about how they are going to run and manufacture this year with the roster they'll have. If he rediscovers his touch, you could almost see a scenario where he bursts through his ceiling and gives you 40+ this year.
