Which I thought was an interesting statement.

Wow, that guy def. won't be winning your league. btw, I would pick him up!

Yeah, those are extremely steep projections. He hasn't done it before when healthy so there's really nothing pointing to that it can happen. I can see the RBIs there maybe, the average is a little too high and he probably doesn't have those type of HR numbers in him.

Last year in only 547 ABs Aramis had a line of .318 99 36 103
If he was healthy and got around 600 ABs, his line last year would have been about: .318 109 39 113. And that was with a bad groin for a few months.

Before the season I projected him to hit slightly better with a healed groin (obviously didn't happen) as well as improvement elsewhere in the Cubs lineup (Patterson, Lee, Hairston) so he would get more RBI chances. Also he's getting into his peak years so a slight improvement in skills wouldn't surprise anyone.

Hopefully he'll get healthy eventually instead of following Kerry Wood's career path.
[b]Bold Predictions:[/b]

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

Aramis without injury: .330 120 45 130 2
Aramis with groin injury: .280 90 25 90 1

I'm afraid it's the latter


that needs to be Aramis with groin injury (and WITHOUT SOSA, ALOU AND NOMAR): .280 90 25 90 1


:-D

he was supposed to be a keeper for me this season. but if this keeps up, i might try to trade him down the stretch for something because i got mora off of waivers..........

All I said was that with those projections, you were comparing him to Pujols. Maybe...maybe...you can justify your HR and RBI totals, but a .330 average? Before last year, the guy had never hit above .300. Your projections suggest that you think Aramis is perhaps the best hitter in all of baseball, and yet he's not even the best right-handed hitter with the last name "Ramirez."

I have ARam now but it would probably be easy to buy low on Eric Chavez, if anyone thinks that guys worth it.

Who do you see being more valuable from here on out...ARam or Chavy?

Aram is a 150+ gamer. Dusty just been making excuses to get Neifi(a former Bakerer) in there a game or two. Once they get Polanco and Walker back and 70 degree+ weather Aram wil be back all the time w his 11 Mil contract.

I think that A-RAM will be fine. Everyone on my team except for Brian Roberts is sturggling. I have so many studs that are not producing.. These 5 have been really dissapointing these past couple of weeks Matsui, Sheff, A-RAM, Beltran, Chavez. (just got Chavez in a trade and Sheff had a nice day today ;-D )
