Chris Coste -- for real?

Chris Coste is currently sporting a .968 OPS (and rising as I write) in 75 AB. And that's after posting a .708 in 24 AB in June.

While I don't see him being able to keep this pace up if he becomes a full-time player, I'm starting to think he really could be a serious asset to the Phils down the stretch and next year.

I really want to know what was wrong with him when he slumped so badly in AAA after not making the big-league roster. Was he just down in the dumps, was there some glitch in his swing, or something else? Just bad luck?

This is a guy that a system like PECOTA probably would choke on. How do you project a 33-year-old rookie?

Give me your best guesses as to his final 2006 line, and his 2007 line (assuming you think he'll make the team).

My guesses (and these are truly wild-ass guesses):

  1. .305/.355/.490 in 200 AB
  2. .270/.345/.450 in 325 AB
I'll take that from a catcher any day.
