Is it me or is this guy a bona fide sleeper. I have read predictions of 280 plus 25 hrs plus and 80-100 rbi. I would be surprised if he cost more than $1-$3 in my 12 team $260 4 x 4 keeper league. Your thoughts?

Lane has never really gotten a full-time position. This year is the first, its always been said he had the talent, so I would say YES, I really don't think he will hurt you but at the same time can help you alot. Just my opinion. ;-D

Holliday is the perfect example of using a guy just when he bats at home in a platoon situation with someone else.

His split stats with almost identical AB's for home and away last year

Home: 204 AB .338 AVG .406 OBP 1.009 OPS 10HR 36RBI 20BB 29K
Road: 196 AB .240 AVG .287 OBP .654 OPS 4HR 21RBI 11BB 57K

He's great if you just start him at home.

He was asking about Matt Holliday not Jason Lane.

I like those numbers!! I have him as my 4th OF in a dynasty league and he adds depth to my squad. If he has a week-long homestand, he's in my starting lineup.

I think Holliday should be pretty good this year, and now he's a full-time starter (last year was Wilson-Burnitz-Walker before trades and injuries).
