The first 3 are pretty close, Hidalgo is clearly a step behind IMO.

And I agree, Hidalgo is a decent distance behind the other 3.

Wells getting a lot of love considering he pretty much stunk last year.

Hafner and Patterson, while hardly reliable fantasy vets themselves look like better options to me than an OF coming off a bad year who now no longer has Delgado in the lineup with him.

Wells is easily the best of the bunch IMO. I agree with Mustangs.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Hidalgo's behind right now for sure, but don't be surprised if he turns in a very solid campaign. I also expect Hafner's batting average to slip below .300. When it's all said and done, Hidalgo may be closer to the pack than expected.

I'm tired of arguing about Vernon Wells. He was hurt last year. He's 26. He hit .317-33-117 in 2003. He's going to continue to improve into his prime, even though his R/RBI numbers won't be great in that horrid lineup. SBs will make up for that.

Wells' monthly numbers in 2004:
APRIL .211-1 HR
MAY .360-5 HR
JUN .333-3 HR (missed over half the month...strained calf muscle)
JUL .242-3 HR (missed nearly half the month...strained calf muscle)
AUG .210-3 HR
SEP .291-7 HR

First, he was just bad in April, superb in May and June...those numbers average out pretty nicely to his norms.

Note that on August, 24- August, 26, Wells was out of the lineup with tightness in his right calf...the same calf that he injured in June. This proves that he was not completely healthy for the July and August months where he was absolutely putrid. He looked a lot like his old self in September, demonstrating that he could be ready to bounce back in 2005.

As some of you more familiar with injuries may know, a calf injury is very close to the ACL and thus is critical for athletic ability. However, being obviously less serious than an ACL injury, Wells should be good to go this season.

Vernon Wells will bounce back. Write it down.
