    And then it went sideways as much as any thread ever could without some one tossing in a recipe:
    2006 Redzone mock Draftee's- 1(st) Daniel Bard(redsox), 1(st sup)( Jordan Walden (Angels), 2(nd) rd.- Zach Britton(Orioles), 3(rd) Blair Erickson(Cardinals), 3(rd) Tim Norton( Yankees),(cuz its a Tim Hortons thing

    Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory... lasts forever.

    Re: Should Laynce Nix get more playing time?

    Does anyone have a projection for Laynce Nix if he were to get a full season of ABs? I'm looking for average, obp, slg, homers, stolen bases, etc projected over a full season based on him being healthy.

    Of course I'm doing this looking to recreate in The Show because his ratings are extremely low.

    Code:
    Player	AVE	OBP	SLG	OPS	ISO 	k%	BB%	XBH%	wOBA	Def/150	Run/600
    Nix	0.258	0.313	0.455	0.768	0.197	25.7	6.7	39.2	0.331	-1	12
    This would be what his counting stats would look like over 600 PA's base upon that projection:

    Code:
    PA	H	1b	2b	3b	hr	R	RBI	bb	ibb	k	hbp
    600	143	87	28	3	25	69	80	40	0	154	5

    Gotta admit, Laynce Nix is one guy I was wrong about. I wanted him replaced with just about any out of work vet lefty bat. Nix has been good so far. I'm in the camp that wants him in LF against RHP (though I still think Dickerson will prove valuable). Pop is a good thing.

    Yea, I noticed that too...he's not supposed to be a great defender, but he sure looked good tonight. That play at the wall was a tough one too...he timed it just right. Laynce Nix for GG!!

    I think Nix is at least average as a defender. Maybe even slightly above. He's definitely not a liability out there. With that said, he looks atrocious at the plate against LHP. But as a platoon guy, I think he does the job just fine.
