As legend goes, on May 30th, 1982, Orioles utility infielder, Lenn Sakata was so inspired by the hit film of the day, Conan the Barbarian, that he dressed in animal skin Jockey underwear “borrowed” from Jim Palmer and carried a cardboard sword into the locker room.  Now whether Cal Ripken (then Cal Ripken Jr.) knew the power in that cardboard sword or if he was just patronizing Sakata no one knows, but Ripken knelt on the floor in front of Sakata and asked him to touch his shoulder with the cardboard sword.  With a grand gesture, that was probably unnecessary, Sakata obliged.  As we all know, May 30th, 1982 began The Streak.  On the record, Ripken thanked his family and teammates for their support for making The Streak possible.  Off the record, of course, Ripken knew it was Lenn Sakata that forever changed history.  This year, Lenn Sakata returned to the Orioles locker room, dressed in only faux leather boots and a loincloth.  Most of the Orioles thought Sakata was a homeless person that snuck past security… Some thought he was the Asian guy from The Hangover… But Matt Wieters knew different.  Before security could escort Sakata out, Wieters knelt in front of him and asked Lenn to touch him with the cardboard sword.  The same cardboard sword that once touched Ripken’s shoulder.  (It also touched a young Jeffrey Hammonds’s shoulder.  Nevertheless…)  For the superstitious, this is enough for Matt Wieters to be a 2010 fantasy baseball keeper, but for the non-believers, let’s look at some other reasons.

In nearly 700 plate appearances in the minor leagues, Wieters had a line of .343/.438/.576.  At 6 feet 5 inches, he had some saying he was “Mauer with power.”  Turns out Mauer had power, which worked out for those who love to rhyme, and Wieters had rookie hiccups.  It wasn’t until the tail end of the year when Wieters started to show some of his promise, hitting .362/.425/.511 in September.  In 2010, Wieters could get to a line of 70/17/85/.300.  If those numbers look familiar, you might be Pablo Sandoval.  Check your midsection for confirmation.  That was near my 2009 projections for Sandoval; Wieters isn’t far off.  Those numbers are also a baseline.  There’s definite upside.  So there may just be magic in that cardboard sword of Lenn Sakata.  Heaven knows there’s magic in his loincloth.

    can you identify any more ballplayers who kneel before guys wearing loincloths and brandishing cardboard swords ?
    i prefer not to draft any of those boys .

    hell , i had to let moises alou go ,
    when i found out he was pissing on his hands .
    it wasn’t so much that the clubhouse smelled like a litterbox .
    which it did ,
    but no one knew how to congratulate him .

    sucks for some odd reason in my league of cleveland fans therre’s one orioles fan and some rays fans…. weiters went in the 7th round this past year! It was funny then, but one of these years that guy is going to laugh, until then i’ll laugh at him while I take players that are actually worth a 7th round pick.

    @Tony: Where do you rank Wieters on your catchers list? From July 28 to Sep 28, he ranked 5th (behind Mauer, Martinez, Suzuki, McCann) (ahead of Posada, Montero, Olivo) in my points league.

    @Simply Fred: IDK i wont be taking him, but if had to rank him it would def’ly be behind Mauer, vmart, and mccaan, after that its kind of a crapshoot. Basically i’d much rather take a Monterero type later or snag up a Monterero esque player during the season than spend a mid round pick on weiters hoping he returns its value. I’m very much in the PUNT THE CATCHER CAMP.

    If its the 7th round and I have a choice between say Wainwright or Weiters? I’m going WAINY. (i dont know if wainy will be around then this next year, but cust kayin’)

    Grey, yesterday you approved me trading Y. Gallardo (2012) & Mat Gamel (2011) FOR Ryan Zimmerman (2011). I am trying to get a little more out of Zimmerman’s owner because I know I can.

    I need a catcher, what do you think of this revised offer?:

    Gallardo (2012), Gamel (2011) and Carrasco (2012)
    FOR
    Zimmerman (2011) and Saltalamacchia (2011)

  8. Commish Cauda (formerly Mike) says:
    (link)

    @Grey:

    No likey Salty? I thought he would be a great post-hype sleeper in 2010.

    He doesn’t have much else to offer at catcher. But here are some other names that jump out at me:

    Weeks (2011)
    Conor Jackson (2011)
    Matt Lindstrom (2010)
    Andy Pettitte (2011)
    Francisco Liriano (2011)
    Drew Stubbs (tbd)*

    *tbd=I could assign a 2010, 2011 or 2012 contract if I trade for him

    I still have a need at 1B and 2B. I’ve always liked Conor Jackson, and he was out due to illness this year, not injury.

    Does getting Salty and Jackson, or Weeks and Jackson, along with Zimmerman make it worth while, or should I just stand be satisfied with Gallardo/Gamel for Zimmerman alone?

  9. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Commish Cauda (formerly Mike): No, I likey, but just wondering options. Well, I liked the deal originally. Not crazy about Conor, Weeks is very high risk/high reward and Stubbs is intriguing though I could see someone like him ending up on the bench by May. Since you’re playing with the house’s money, I’d go for Weeks and Salty. Though I would make sure next year to have a great backup at MI for when Weeks hurts himself.

    EDIT: Word.

    Slightly off topic, but our commish (and champion 3 yrs running) is trying everything he can to work out a trade to get Justin Upton from me. I am loathe to give him up but currently he’s offering my choice of any 3:

    C. Kershaw
    A. Lind
    C. Carpenter
    K. Morales
    B. McCann

    It’s a deep 12 team league with 8 keepers and as of now I probably only have 6 or 7 guys I’d want to keep. Worth it? How good will J-Up be next year? The year after?

    and i’m wondering if that head-case , padilla ,
    can keep up with him .

    @JaHerer: Upton will be great, but what’s your other keepers. In other words, do you need the depth if you were to get Lind, Morales and McCann for him?

    @big o: Padilla’s not a good pitcher, will probably be another game decided by bullpens.

  15. Commish Cauda (formerly Mike) says:
    (link)

    @Grey:

    The plot thickens…

    Before I could go at him about adding in Weeks, he countered with this:

    Gallaro/Carrasco FOR Zimmerman/Salty

    (compared to the original of Gallardo/Gamel FOR Zimmerman)

    @Grey:

    Lol. Snakes on a Plane.

    I actually grew up a diehard Dodgers fan. When the team was sold to Fox and the dismal aftermath I lost interest. Dbacks were more of a recent thing based more on beating on the Yanks (always endorsed) and local availability of broadcasting combined with some players I enjoyed watching (Mini Donkey, Upton, Webby, Haren, etc) I’ve been rooting for the dbacks lately. When I hear Vin Scully tho, those long summer nights as a kid listening to Dodger baseball on the radio draw me back to the Blues. I guess I’m more with you now, a baseball fan who roots for players I like.

  84. Elijah says:
    (link)

    @Grey:

    I think the first moment I was “a dbacks fan” was when I was living in New Mexico sitting at the bar watching the Yanks finish off the Mariners. Some stereotypical Yank fans (tourists) was there, and I was talking some baseball with em. I congratulated em and all, then talk went to the series and I opined that that the Dbacks had an outside chance since they had 2 superior starters in Johnson and Schilling. They were the epitome of arrogance, mocked me and guffawed at Yankee invincibility and I hated their guts. So on and so forth.

    What do you think of the same deal for Wright instead of Zimmerman?

    Gallado/Carrasco FOR Wright/Salty

    Or should I try to give up less since Wright is devalued after a poor year and Zimmerman has a longer contract?

    Like maybe just Gallardo for Wright straight up?

    The love/hate thing with the Yanks is something one can use in Fantasy I found out. Had a couple Mets fans and a Red Sox fan in my league, and no one wanted Jeter so I got him bargain basement.

    I know we are still in the playoffs right now, but what do you think of Jeter going into next year? He was ranked at 10 in CBS’ final stat thing at the end of this year. Any way he repeats his killer year of three thirty average with nearly twenty homers and thirty steals?

    @Mr Baseball: Nice shot.

    @Corey: Average is fickle, Jeter’s a .300 to .340 hitter. I also wouldn’t count on 30 steals. He hits 15 to 20 homers. So you get .340/20/30 if you’re lucky, or you get .300/15/15 and you’re bored.

    @ Grey: It’s just that I’m in a situation where I have four OFs I could keep (Dunn, Soriano, Hunter, Sizemore) and could spare to lose one, and an offer was presented for Jeter/1st round pick/Snider for Sizemore. I just think Sizemore is too good to be traded for that.

    @Corey: Jeter, Snider and a pick isn’t as good as Peavy and Jeter.
