both switch hitters

 

hicks has a much better arm, but bernie was a legit 300-330 hitter in his prime.  both seem to be able to hit 25-30 homers...hicks might even have slightly more power

 

plus hicks is already 28 (29 in oct) so his prime might only be like 3 or 4 years

Both 6'2 around 190

Both rocked a bald head

I wonder if Hicks plays guitar ?

Don't remove him from the leadoff spot. Hicks is the better player than Gardner, also against righties.

 

Vs Lefties: 148 wRC+ (Hicks) - 79 wRC+ (Gardner)

                    .387 wOBA (Hicks) - .288 wOBA (Gardner)

                    .926 OPS (Hicks) - .629 OPS (Gardner)

Vs Righties: 122 wRC+ (Hicks) - 107 wRC+ (Gardner)

                     .348 wOBA (Hicks) - .328 wOBA (Gardner)

                     .811 OPS (Hicks) - .746 OPS (Gardner)

My guess is if you look at the box score from their June 4th game, it would make this lil nugget not as dramatic. I'm too lazy to do it myself tho :lol:

everyone scrambling to get him - he has always been an OF3/OF4 with upside explosions like this one.  We've more than likely seen his best game this season.  Funny how people react to one game sample sizes with players.  He's def a great bench OF to own but he's been fairly solid all season.

Yea, I don't get it either but they've said from the jump that Hicks will likely only be leadoff against LHP starters.  You'd think they'd at least put him at 3 to get him AB's while he's seeing the ball well.

RED hot. The fact that you could get this guy off the waiver wire 2 straight seasons in a 12 teamer is ridiculous. He literally does it all.

Nah. As the previous poster stated Bernie was a literally a .330 hitter in his prime. Pretty crazy.

 

I think Hicks is poised to be the next Brett Gardner. Before you scoff at the comparison think of it this way: very good overall player, but poised to be a perennial whipping boy for Yankee fans because he's good at everything (power, on-base, speed, defense) but great at nothing and hits for a relatively low average. That and his knack for nagging injuries will hurt his end-of-season counting stats.

Not playing 2nd game of dbl header after going 2/3 and 2 walks. Why?

This guy seems pretty awesome, but there always seems to be a large group that really dislikes him. Is it the injury prone aspect?

As someone who owns him, he seems to be very streaky. His bursts that he displays shows the potential and the overall numbers of an elite OF over the course of a 162 game span. The reason he's not universally owned though is because he can go 2-3 weeks basically doing nothing and then have a 3 homer game like he had this earlier year.
