Luke Scott 2013 Outlook
Posted 02 May 2013 - 12:12 AM
He's getting there in age and coming off a year of injuries, but in years past, he could give you a month's worth of production in a week or less when he gets hot. Just remember to cut bait quickly once he goes cold.

He's old and injury prone so it might not still be in the cards but if he hammers the ball tonight I'm gonna try to find room for him, then drop him after his first 1 for 8.

Is he worth a pickup right now?
Too bad the all-star break occurred, looks like he could've been in the midst of one of his tears. I actually picked him up then immediately dropped him for someone else and missed out on a couple of homers. I know he's old and seems like a stupid guy off the field but I'm still pretty surprised he's only owned at 1% in Yahoo as he's eligible at 1B, and he was perplexedly at 3% a few days ago befor the 2 HR.
In the OF-DH mix between him, Johnson and Joyce he seems to be the winner as he starts nearly everyday, including against lefties. If you're desperate for 1B or CI can't hurt to pick him up and try him out for a couple of days. I'm gonna see how he does day-by-day and depending on whether he seems to be mashing and how my 23rd man is doing I might pick him up. If I do, though, I'll drop him without hesitation after his first 1 for 8 or if someone with any long term prospects becomes available.

It was Wolverine that copied Luke Scott's look. He's look like that for years. Maybe decades.
Pass...works way too hard to look like Wolverine
Yeah more than Bruce or Hardy, Luke Scott is Mr Streaky. If you have room for him and enough moves, pick him up and ride the wave. When he crashes, feel free to drop him. Repeat as often as needed throughout the season. Any season.

If LS puts up anything more than a lucky single against Lester in Fenway where he's a lifetime .230-.240 hitter, it might indicate that his plate approach has improved this year.
