When Kennys Vargas first arrived on the major league baseball scene, people were like, “Is he a switch hitter or are there two of them?”  Then when it turned out there were multiple Kennys, people started gossiping like they were in a sewing circle, “Is it fair if there’s more than one Kenny in the batter’s box at once?”  To those people I submit, it could be worse, they could’ve stayed Siamese twins.  Did you know both Kennys got in a fight when a reporter asked them if they’d seen their slash line lately?  They pointed to their Siamese twins separation scar and said they see it every day.  (I’m just going by what I saw on the latest Ken Burns documentary.  If Kennys is one person and was never a Siamese twin, I sincerely apologize.  By the by, never trust anyone who says they sincerely apologize.  They’re trying too hard to be believable.  I saw that on another documentary.  Netflix’s motto, “We Prove People Will Watch Documentaries.”)  Last year, Kenny/Kenny hit 9 homers and .274 in 53 games.  Crown Kenny-slash-Kenny the new Babe Ruth and name multiple candy bars after them.  “I’m Heath and I’m Skor, and we’re the same but separate.”  That’s the Kennys in a commercial.  Okay, so 9 homers in 53 games isn’t exactly the meow’s cat, until… Oh, no, here comes The Prorater!  Run, it’s The Prorater!  Four women and children first!  The Prorater tells me that Kennys would’ve had 27 homers in a full season, and that would’ve just about led the league.  Damn, that last part didn’t sound like The Prorater but more like Hyperbole Man.  So, what can we expect of Kennys Vargas for 2015 fantasy baseball and what makes him a sleeper?

Well, dur, he’s not being drafted until the last rounds.  That goes a long way to being a sleeper.  If he can stop swinging at everything, that would also go a long way to helping him.  For players with 230 plate appearances last year, he had the 25th highest swinging strike rate.  Having a high swinging strike rate is a good way to have a shizzy average.  C’mon, Kennys, get it together — that’s not another Siamese twin crack.  Swinging at balls outside the strike zone can also hurt, and he does that too.  Adam Jones, Jose Abreu, Carlos Gomez were as equally ‘bad’ as Kennys.  Though, those (almost stutterer!) guys do make better contact with pitches outside the strike zone.  (Hit a ball outside the strike zone and it’s not usually hard contact, but at least you’re hitting it.)  His ability to make contact with balls inside the strike zone is just above league average, but, when he hits it, the ball goes a long way.  The good news is at one point he had contact issues in the minors too.  In Rookie ball, he had a 26.2% strikeout percentage, then the next year he had 22% then 20.2% and finally in Double-A it was 16.8%.  That’s right, he never even played in Triple-A, so it’s understandable he struggled in the majors.  Oh, and as mentioned in the intro paragraph, he didn’t struggle that much; he did hit .274 (though with a high BABIP).  You didn’t hear much about Kennys before his call-up, because he’s not that exciting in real baseball terms.  He’s got the agility of a drunk sloth, and is slated to DH.  In fact, he won’t have 1st base eligibility in ESPN leagues, because he only played there 13 games last year.  He could get it during the year — who knows what will happen with Joe Mauer — but he’s just a UTIL bat in leagues that need 20 games played at a position.  Since his power is real and beautiful, I definitely like the late-round gamble on him.  For 2015, I’ll give him 74/25/83/.251 with upside from there.  Just don’t ask him about his slash line.

first and foremost, grey i owe you an apology, i called you out on your michael brantley love last year, i was wrong.

secondly,
i run a h2h league with daily moves, no moves limit, where last year streaming got out of hand. managers were picking up 6+ SP a day to steal all the counting stats.

any recommendations on the best way to prevent this from happening again? innings limit? moves limit? weekly rosters?

@Harry Hardenberg: I think weekly moves limit is the best option and set it at 5 so guys can continue to stream a bit but limits stockpiling and makes people less loose with their streaming choices. Puts everyone on the same playing field if they all have the same amount of moves.

@Grey:

the issue was guys would stay up til the rosters set for the next day (3 am) and grab as many as they possibly could (lame)

and the thought that the inability of being able to pick up hitters is a negative is a facade.

the advantage of picking up a pitcher greatly outweighs the opportunity cost of foregoing a hitter for that day, in my experience in that league.

Hi Grey,
Quick story. My friend Nick and I, who met you at the San Diego Razzball football draft, went on down to the Tuesday night winter meetings at the Hyatt. I wasn’t expecting much, just wanted to check out the scene. Well, after about 2 minutes in the lobby we saw over a dozen folks that only a baseball nerd could love: Kevin Millar, Ken Rosenthal, Jon Hyman, Matt Williams, Ryan Dumpster, etc. But the real treat was seeing Jim Leyand just hanging out talking to two (stutterer!) other gentlemen. After a moment, Leyland excused himself and went outside. To my great joy, I got to watch the old man sit down on a bench and light up a smoke.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and happy new year!

@Grey: Yea I’m in agreement that it was a good move for the Yanks. Also frees up space for Refsnyder to play 2B. Now the infield besides Tex isn’t very injury prone so we don’t necessarily need prado as a backup at every position, even though it was nice. Jones can be backup for Tex and Beltran, so in my eyes this was a great move. The minor leaguer Domingo German looks like he’s been pretty good in the minors as well. Don’t know why people are freaking out saying this is dumb

Gr8 stuff and gr8 banter on the Padres from all. Hopefully it means at least 1 run more for each pitcher (including Kennedy et al) of run support. This will only enhance the chances for success of your ‘only Padres pitchers and only Rockies hitters team’.

1. It’d be cool if Kennys could morph into two players in the batter’s box at the same time every time he comes up to bat. Right?

2. My big question is where will the Braves’ pitchers get any run support from? I don’t see any player adds to the Braves’ offense. Are they ‘REALLY’ planning to bring back Chipper Jones?

3. I used to be a Braves’ fan until they let the the wrong Upton go. This lineup is just the worst – downright offensive!. I’d rate them the worst in MLB.

4. The Braves should trade FF for Gaby Sanchez and clinch the number 1 pick in the 2016 June draft. Awful team!

Now there’s talk of the Padres sending Hanigan to BOS for Middlebrooks…This is turning out to be the most exciting Padres off season ever. I half (er, maybe wholly) expected them to call it a day after obtaining Barmes. I don’t even think I give a crap about whether all of the trades will prove to be wise, and it appears that the term Hodgepadre might not see much use this summer, but who cares, because I might even try to pay attention to the game when I go to Petco!

No one talked about him, eh? My recollection of me says different! I had him as a deep league talk with Nick around the All-Star break. It’s probably an unfair comparison, but many were talking about how his swing reminded them of David Ortiz in the organization. So if that’s true, he’ll have a couple of so-so years with them and then go onto a team that actually wants to win and he’ll start hitting 30+ bombs a year while simultaneously starting to look like Florida Evans. Fun times!

@KB: why, BP has SD park factors (3 year) only slightly below ATL’s. And now SD’s lineup is at least as good as ATL’s (remember them being 2nd worst to SD in runs last year). Biggest difference is that there’s 2 good stadiums for road games COL/ARI vs only one in divisional games for ATL (PHI). I’m going from BP 2014 obv, since 2015 isn’t out yet. NYM/WAS/ATL/MIA are awful parks for offense in general. SD is only slightly worse than ATL and COL/ARI are a lot better than all the others except PHI. PHI is quite a bit ranked higher than ARI by these metrics though.

Wow crickets on a Twins topic. Shocking. Whatever, Kenny Squared has a pretty clear path to a lot of ABs either at DH or 1B for the inevitable “its too taxing for Mauer to play the field” stage of the season. K2 is a beast; slow and probably won’t age well but shows enough power to get over at Target Field. Definitely on my radar.

I’ll take my wine grapes pressed that way. Not sure I want any extra flavors in my chocolate.

Grey, others, hello! I can keep two of Trout, Rizzo, Jones, Rendon. I’m considering NOT keeping Jones for Rizzo. That crazy?

@El cuñado: First base is thin. If you keep 2, the draft should be loaded with OF. I would keep Rizzo.
