Dude seems like he has the job locked up for the regular season for the Mariners. I can se him putting up some nice stats being eligible at 2b/ss in most leagues. Thoughts?

Yeah, if you're in a league where you get points for being "hard-nosed."  I wouldn't even draft him in an AL-Only league.  Unless you're psyching urself up for his 1 RBI per week.

No offense, just surprised someone stayed up late to type his name, then follow his name with other words

I'm not sure what "good" numbers are. His ceiling seems to be set at a 5/15 year with a .240 average. He's the definition of a useless fantasy player.
Bring back Ray!

Troll harder.

Ryan is the worst hitter in the league, by far.  Close this thread and burn it.

Brenda Ryan wouldn't have value in 162 team leagues.  The guy is the worst hitter in the league.......by a good margin.  He makes Ronnie Cedeno look like Ernie Banks.

I'll play devils advocate.

1. Playing for Seattle has killed his modest numbers.  He's got a .219/.313/.264 slash at Safeco

2. His first three years in the league (846 plate appearances), while playing for St. Louis, he put up a .279/.333/.373 line (.706 OPS)...that's useful for a SS.  He runs a little too...63 career SB (75% success rate)

that is true, I remember he was a good player in STL. If he gets traded, I could definitely see top 5 2b or ss stats. Seattle is a hellhole for fantasy players.

He would be one of the top picks in a razzball league where you are drafting for the worst stats possible.

Drafting him with confidence in my 16-team seattle mariners-only league.

Well, maybe not that much confidence. Fingers crossed!
I've got more hits than Sadaharu Oh.

I don't know what the metrics say but this guy is one if the best fielders I've ever seen.  Awesome hands, arm, and instincts.  I'd pay money just to watch him field.  And he doesn't get a lot of web gems because his instincts put him in position to not need to dive.
