This guy is killin me. do u think he will snap out of it soon or do u think hes in for a sophomore slump of sorts. of course he wont put up great stats but apparently a 270 avg and 30 steals is a reach now.

His value really took a hit when they announced he bats 8th or 9th against right handers. I don't know what to think about him. He went from super sleeper to super bust in a matter of minutes. I wish I wouldn't have invested so much in him personally. :-/

I was pretty big on him too but fortunately others had an even higher opinion of him than me. As long as he is batting so low in the order his value is decreased.

I think he'll turn it around at some point. However, hitting at the bottom of the order is going to hurt him all season. I don't think i would consider dropping him from MY team, just because i like his position eligibility (i like players that i can use to fill in for guys on off days, injuries, etc). That said, i'm not starting him regularly either.

Somebody dropped him in my yahoo league and I quickly snatched him up to replace K. Greene at SS. So I am happy about that ;-D
He should pick it up a little and get some steals along the way. I am not expecting anything spectacular at this time but should produce decent stats.

if he doesnt make a case for himself than i would say yes its very possible(course i also thought that to begin with.) he still will get time since he plays everywhere to play on other guys days off. he really needed to play very well though (or atleast half way competently) and he would have had the 2b job. at this point if kennedy were to come back now id think he would be subbing again like last year.

i dont know about that. i would assume hed slide over to 3rd and he replace macier izturis if kennedy were to return today. and until mcpherson does something at 3rd i think that would be his job.

I'm kicking myself right now. i was defintely in the "overated" group preseason on chone and didn't draft him in any leagues. He was going early.

But then last week this guy in my big money league offered me Figgins for my Wickman and I took it. since then Wickman has gotten two saves and I lost saves last week by one. Wickman may look ugly, but i think I wish i could take that trade back.
