Guys I live in Orange County of Los Angeles. :-?

Anyway, I live about 10 minutes from the stadium and the Angels are the team I root for. I saw 3/4 of their games....He had a limp from about 1/3 of the way through the season last year and still won the MVP. His knees aren't the best in the world, but it shouldn't be a concern.

It's like Pujols. He has nagging foot injuries but he seems to mash no matter what.

That's what I was gonna say. The way he runs, how could you tell if he really WAS limping?

The limp is just the Vladdy way. He goes all out on every swing and every play on defense, so he is always a little sore and creaky, but I own him and im not worried. hes a gamer.

"He been shot 9 time but he dont walk with a limp!"

Thats partly the way he walks, and probably just some pain in his knees. Its not a big concern. He can DH when he needs to. He should threaten AL MVP again this year.

I, too, have seen this limp that Guerrero has, I have stayed away from him every year...not that that is a good thing, but I would take another player of equivalent performance that does not have any risk of injury. Vlad reminds me of over-sized men like Andre the Giant. He is just so big and cumbersome, that he may just walk like that.

yeah, Vlad "should" be fine... but I too have the #3 pick and plan to take AROD (assuming Pujols and Beltran are 1,2 like I'd expect). I know people are down on AROD lately and he plays at a deep 3B position... but there should be NO concerns with AROD when it comes to health/durability... and even if he doesn't improve too much on last year's numbers (i think he will!), he's a near lock for over 600 AB's. I wouldn't say the same thing for Vlad...
