If his OBP is above .330 and he slugs .500, I'm not sure anyone will care what his BA is. For a non-fantasy perspective, there's plenty of logic to your statement. From a fantasy perspective, no one really cares as long as the counting stats are there.
Even if he hits well.. his counting stats are going to suck. Houston's offense is historically bad. No one to drive in and no one to drive him in.
But that being said, his walk rate and his speed should stop him from being a total bust.
I am seeing these crazy #'s being thrown out.. I just don't see it. No one in major league history has had a contact rate that low and been anything more then a crappy arse player. If he succeeds with that K rate it will be historic. Do you really think Springer is a transcendent player.
