Luis Gonzalez... how will he finish

Postby solracp25 » Wed May 18, 2005 10:43 pm

Haven't seen much talk of him, but he has been a savior for me. I didn't think he would have any value but wow, he is still healthy.
.308/5 HR/26 RBI/26 R/2 SB plus he has a .405 OBP
I know he has lost almost all his pop but I think 20-25/100+/.300 sounds reasonable, also could be close to 100 runs due to Glaus hitting behind him. How do you guys think he will fair?
by the way my outfield is awful: Drew/Manny/Gonzalez/A. Jones
Could workout but Manny really doesn't look good this year, I want to move him but I don't think I can get much.

Gonzalez was one of my sleepers preseason and he's doing what I thought he would do-put up numbers he did the season before the injury.

I think your OF is fine unless you're playing in a small league.

I would think someone would take Manny for 1st round value as he's still a big name player. Try to find an owner who's Dominican.
[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

And who would he try to trade Andruw Jones to...the black guy in his league? Trade JD Drew to the white guy in your league. WTF?

I assume he would try to trade Drew to the crippled guy in the league. :-D

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Other trade options:

You could trade Jeff Kent to the a-hole in your league (oh, that's me).

Try offering Milton Bradley to the crazy dude in your league.

Offer Mike Piazza to the (edited)....uh, nevermind.

If there's a guy in your league with six fingers, he might be interested in Antonio Alfonseca.

That guy with the blister problem? He'd be all over Josh Beckett.

Try trading Randy Johnson to the old guy in your league (hey, that's me too!).

Offer Johnny Damon to the girl in your league.

Before the season, I was one that thought he was all done. Got desperat for an OF in my last draft and took him. Tried to combine him in all kinds of packages before the season, no takers. Boy, am I glad. He really has come through so far and I don't mind admitting how wrong I was. There is still some gas left in his tank. }:-)
