Hamels started toward the dugout after what he thought was a strike. Lincecum didn't get the call & buzzed ump Dana DeMuth w. a fastball that slammed off the backstop & then froze Hamels w. another 3rd strike. 4/28/10 Timmy the ump killer.

Re: Love Frandsen....


He's never going to be a power hitter, he can hit for contact though.

I know there have been Robby Thompson comparisons but he'll hit for less power than Robby.

I see Frandsen being a utility infielder that can play decent defense at 2B, SS, and 3B and be a top PH off the bench.

Re: Love Frandsen....


I hear ya, but I think the kid is a possible 300 hitter with solid D.. worthy of a lineup spot

And power, probably not Robby Thompson, but not a slap hitter either... And players have a tendency to add power as they get older... even into their 30's

Maybe never 25-30
But I could see 15-20

He's never hit more than 5 HR in the minors and there were no signs of him developing power. I know he's hit a couple HR this ST, so maybe he'll hit some HR this season.

I agree with .300 part, I think he's a very good contact hitter.

Re: Love Frandsen....


I think he is ready now, so it all depends on Ray... I think Frandsen will get some time this year and take over next year.

Sanders... well, he is one of the only "great" talent position players we have. If he recovers from shoulder surgery, he could be a SPECIAL player...

Sanders can be MUCH better than Frandsen.
Frandsen is the kinda player you root for... not great at anything... JUST a GOOD BALLPLAYER

Re: Love Frandsen....


Sanders should move to second base, it will help his shoulder.

The problem I have with Sanders is that he's below average defensive player at a defensive dominated position.

Offensively, he's fine. He's a leadoff hitter with speed and improving patience at the plate.

He'll cut down on those 90 K's he had last year and will still put up the good BB numbers.

ETA should be 2007 as this team will be in rebuilding mode.

Been a while since we had a true leadoff hitter in Brett Butler (maybe Durham for one good year)

True High OBP and Speed Leadoff men are more scarce today then anytime in recent memory. There are only a handful in the game, and their scarity makes Sanders that much more valuable to us. Look at the $$$ Furcal got... and he is only a .350 OBP leadoff hitter (abeit with strong SS Defense)

I agree about the speed/high OBP type leadoffs hitters being scarce.

Now you either are a leadoff hitter with speed but below average OBP or your a guy with a high OBP but with average speed.

Sanders could be a speed/high OBP type at the current pace he is at right now.
