Certainly in 2C leagues. In 1C, he is probably right on the edge of being in the top 12 not that he is back in the AL in ahitter's park.

He is the one guy I have been targeting in the last rounds of my drafts. Excellent late round choice at catcher. Put it this way, this year I see this from him.

75 Runs 12 HR 85 RBI's .300 avg in close to 500 AB's.

Top 5 in Runs, RBI's and Avg. and Top 10 in HR's. Similar value to guys like Posada but going way, way lower.

I believe that AJ is a good value this year. Here is my profile on AJ from the website DiamondGurus.com

Why did a player who hit .300 three of the last four years have his batting average drop to .272 in a year he his strikeout rate was cut in half to .06? No one really knows but there are many factors that suggest that it was not a drop in his skills. He was traded to San Francisco last offseason, a pitchers park, and his hit rate dropped to .29, which is significantly lower than the rest of his career. His power did not drop much at all and that suggests that, now that he is in a hitters park in Chicago, his hit percentage will return to normal and A.J. will hit .300 with the possibility of being well above it.

Don't forget Ramon Hernandez, who is also undervalued, but has legit 25HR pop.

I like him a lot this year. I am in the 20th round and LoDuca, Lieberthal, and A.J are still out there and I still need a C. I think that I'm gonna wait another round or so and try to get A.J. ;-)

No, that's why I brought it here. I'm not signing up for the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
