Past Fantasy Outlooks
2008
2007
2005
2004
2003
Spiezio turned his career around with two decent seasons in St. Louis. Despite battling injuries and substance abuse problems, Spiezio had 31 runs, 31 RBI and a .354 on-base percentage in just 81 games last year. That the Cardinals stood by him with his personal problems probably indicates that they'd like him to return as a utility player in 2008.
After a couple of poor years with the Mariners, Spiezio revived his career with a surprisingly strong season. He had some big hits in September and October and was rewarded with a two-year contract. He’ll continue to back up the fragile Scott Rolen and be one of the many Cardinals outfield options.
If pain inspires good art, then Spiezio's rock band, Sandfrog, should hit platinum any day now. His 2004 was so bad he needed a September rally to avoid the Mendoza Line. Spiezio's OBP was a mere .288 and he endured a summer stretch of 39 games with two RBI. He can only improve from last year's abomination, but that doesn't make him a good fantasy play.
Spiezio's nothing special with the stick (.261 career) and has never hit 20 homers in a season, but he enters the spring as the everday third baseman for Seattle. The Mariners probably overpaid for the Sandfrog, but there's no reason you should.
Spiezio improved on his offensive numbers in every category except for home runs in 2002 and there is no reason why he won't hit 12 HR, drive in 70 and hit. 280. But he has to stay healthy and he should be three-way platooning with Brad Fullmer and Shawn Wooten.
