I'm starting to get scared about Rowand. He was a career underachiever in the minor leagues and then tears it up when he is brought up to the majors. Im not saying that last year was a fluke but this year doesnt suggest that he will improve on last year. He looks overwhelmed and even though its early Im not sure Im expecting the .300 - 25 - 20 that I thought I would get at the beginning of the year. Nevertheless, given the right price, I would try to buy low.

Dunn is a lot better than Rowand.

Is this a Rowand support group? Im willing to bet all of you overpaid for him.

30/30? Good luck with that. :-D

I completely disagree. His K: BB is about 3:1, that's not very good, far from being a patient hitter. He's a career .281 hitter in the ML, that's right around where I expect his average to be this year. Last year seems like a career year to me, even though he is 26 I don't expect his average to get up to .300 again. With that said he's still worth a roster spot unless there are less than 10 teams in the league.

I mispoke when I said he was a "patient" hitter; I meant to say that he has a patient [/i]swing (check the context of my sentence); he doesn't try to pull it like many free swingers do . He does like to swing at a lot of pitches, but that's something any stat head can figure out for himself. I'm talking about the talent that I see when he plays the game. He's a good hitter.

Last year was the first year Rowand wasn't a part-time player. So it's either a little fast to call his first full year in the majors his career year, or just simply obvious (Yes, it was his career year up to that point, since it was basically his FIRST year). That's the problem with stat people who just make decisions on players without seeing them play.
