Had him at a buck. Figured if Seattle were stupid enough to give him PT (and it was clear they had serious Vidro love) and maybe he could do what he did last year or even 2006. Alas, it was not to be.

DFA'd. Finally And before his contract vested for next season. But I'm sure there must be another AL team in need of a DH who hits under ten home runs a year. And grounds into double plays at a Jim Rice rate, but without Jim Rice skills.

Plays like he's 43, but he gets the bat on the ball. You can have him.

Gotcha. Looking back at it, your comment was clear.

I wasn't implying that it was anything other than the traditional 5x5 including BAvg, not OBP, but OBP, rather than BAvg leads to Runs scored, so it's still a useful skill to have for a 5x5 player.

I should point out that Sportsline uses BA and not OBP.

He doesn't hit for power, hits for a good average, doesn't drive in many runs, and doesn't steal. But, in a 5x5 he is useful, because he has a high OBP and that leads to scoring runs.

In real baseball, OBP is the most useful attribute of a hitter. The problem is DHs are supposed to be well above average hitters since they don't add anything else. A DH whose slugging average is only 80 points higher than his batting average should be an embarassment to his general manager.

He sunk to $1 in Sportsline, more because of the DH/OF glut than any kind of Vidro bias. Still, I can see why Alex isn't standing on his feet and cheering.

I think I didn't have a bid for Vidro because I assumed the M's would come to their senses this winter. In the Barry Bonds comment, SeattleDan tells us they won't, so here's my very grudging bid.

I would go several dollars higher if I could put him at second base: if my league was a casual in its position requirement as the M's are in getting production from their designated hitter. But since he can't in fact play defense any more and there's always the chance the Mariners will wake up, I still wouldn't go to double figures.
