I expect his home run numbers to go up a little based on the park he's playing in as opposed to playing in Oakland.

    He is what he is, and hardly worth the moaning we've seen on the subject. Teams field guys like Hatteberg all the time. They're temporary until they can find a more permanent solution. Believe it or not, the fact that Krivsky hasn't instantly turned this into a team stocked with long-term answers at every position and a wealth of prospects isn't an indictment of his abilities. The fact that he added a legitimate major league starting pitcher under cost control for the next three seasons and hasn't touched the core of the team tells me he's off to a pretty good start.
    Nice Post!!!

    He's likely to be "as productive" as Sean Casey. Last year he drove in about the same amount of runs as Casey and I'm willing to bet he'll ground into fewer DPs.

    He is what he is and I'm OK with him at 1B for 2006. We've got much bigger problems.

    Hatteberg in a less ABs hit into 22 DPs last year. May not want to go out any further on that limb. After watching him run your reaction is likely to be "wow, he is slower than Casey".

    To answer this thread's original question--nothing. But it seems he's just not getting a fair shake, getting nothing but late-inning at-bats and defensive replacement status in ST games. Does not bode well.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    You mean other than Freel having nearly 100 points on him in OBP and SLG? They aren't even in the same league.

    Freel: 271/371/377
    Womack: 249/276/280

    And maybe the fact that Freel isn't an egotistical maniac.

    ..and better defense, and more speed, etc.

    But beyond that, they're essentially the same player.

    They can't have Denorfia and Bronson on the same team cause Deno will be Bogarting all the babes.
