Kearns or Klesko - who will have the better 2nd half?

Postby lifeform » Thu Jun 19, 2003 9:37 am

Kearns has performed above expectations, while Klesko has struggled.

Will both sluggers revert to form? Who will be the more productive player in the 2nd half?

Klesko will increase his production but still fall short to Kearns' numbers.

Kearns. I'll go as far as to say it won't even be close.

Klesko has begun to grumble about losing so maybe a trade to a contender will stir him up. However, I think Kearns is the real deal and will perform better than Rhino in the 2nd half.

Kearns/Klesko

Your answer surprises me a little, Madison. If I had to take guess, I'd actually project Klesko to have the better numbers.

(I'm obviously pretty uncertain about this, hence the reason for posting the question.)

Could you give some reasons for your optimism about Kearns?

Thanks for your input.

Kearns plays in a much better lineup and in my opinion he has more talent than Klesko. Also, Klesko is injury prone and he sits out a lot of games against lefthanded pitchers.

B-) While Klesko has started to come out of his funk a little bit lately...I think with the lineup (and the semi-pennant race)and the ball park that surrounds Kearns...his season numbers should be better! B-)

Season numbers werent the question! from here on out was. Past #s this season are irrelevent, they are ONLY A TOOL to decide how well a player will do in the future. Future expectations are all fantasy baseball is.

I expect Kearns to do better.. its all about the team around him, but if Klesko gets traded who knows what that would do to him.

I see Kearns finishing around .298-34-115 with 10 steals, 80 runs.
I see Klesko finishing around .270-27-90 with 8 steals, 65 runs.

I prefer Kearns because he's in a hitter's park with a better lineup. He seems to be playing with some youthful exuberance. Wants to play type of thing. Plus I just think he's a more gifted player than Klesko. Klesko is in a terrible lineup with a losing team. Hard to put up numbers when you're losing all the time.
