Thoughts on Eric Munson??

Postby fvilla18 » Tue Apr 27, 2004 1:31 am

So far the detroit 3B is batting:

.264 4 12

He put up decent numbers in a limited role last year.

.240 18 50 (99 games- 313 ABs)

any thoughts on him?

Worthy of consideration only in the deepest of leagues. Decent power, but little else.

I wish he would play more... I read today that with sanchez coming back Inge might take playing time away from him and monroe... Is taht a joke... Inge is awful... although I have him as my 2nd catcher haha so hopefully he does alright

hey, gotta ride the Inge hot streak

as for Munson I think he's an okay option for AL Only or like a 20 team mixed league

I agree depending on the type of league you are in munson can be very effective... I am in a HtH league that greatly favors power if he hits 25 bombs this year which was more than on pace to do last year even part time he will be worth a spot.

He only starts against right hand pitchers, so if you need a platoon 3rd baseman he isn't that bad. Being a Tiger fan I really wish he could hit lefties, he has a very quick bat and could hit 30 bombs. They would probably keep Munson in the lineup against lefties if he was a gold glove fielder, but he is a terrible fielder.
