I really have no idea...Colorado is just a bad place to play if you're a pitcher. They had a decent team when they used all mashers. That's what they have to get back to. If they can find any pitcher that can keep the ball in the infield, they would be OK.
But I do think that Andruw Jones does look a little slimmer, and he had a good stroke on both those HR's he hit...
Yeah, it looks like I should have drafted him in one of my leagues.

I hope you D-Backs fans are happy...you are going to win the NL West if Bonds doesn't play according to the Krukster.
And Cornbread, I agree on the Dodgers...I didn't want to touch Gagne this year because I feel that they won't be a very good team. They lost dang near all their bats.
Yeah, but especially with the way that home park plays, you can expect them to play low-scoring games...with decent pitching (it'll be a down year for Dodgers' pitching, IMO...in the future, with Billingsley, Jackson, Miller...watch out NL West) and marginal hitting (addition of Kent and Drew definitely help), you can expect close games. Close games=save opportunities and we know Eric Gagne is money for those.
That being said, K-Rod is a much better value pick than Gagne or Lidge for sure.
As for Colorado, I'm very intrigued to see how Jeff Francis fares there. He's a very impressive pitching prospect. I'd also like to see how Chin-Hui Tsao does closing.
