Maggs due back in a week or so

D'oh! I just dropped him in one of my leagues.
I needed a starter while Beckett is down, and I thought I could snatch him back up while no one was looking.
Hope he's still there when I need him.
Good news, though.
Temper your expectations. He probably won't justify that 7th round pick if you've held him all year, but I'll guarantee he has more potential than anyone who else who might be sitting on your waiver wire.

Berkman just had "one" knee injury and he's been ice cold since coming back. I'm not saying he won't get some nice numbers, but he's definately a shell of the man he was last year.

In that same context, yes, Mags has only had an injury influenced season this year, but it doesn't mean he's going to jump back into to his pre-injury form. Also, he's no spring chicken, he's a whopping 31 y/o!

Also, an "injury prone player" has to start somewhere ;-7 . I remember Griffey having some great years before someone made a Voodoo doll of him.

I've had him taking up a much needed bench spot in one league most of the year. Anything is better than that.

I also dropped bench player Matt Lawton who never sees my starting lineup for him in another. Doesn't hurt anything there.

Already taken in my other two leagues.

Now let's hope for a solid return. :-)

He'll be productive again, it's just a matter of when. I doubt he'll be putting up 30, 100, 20, .300 numbers like he did in his prime ever again but I'd be shocked if he just widdled away into nothing...

I'd expect a terrible July from him, and maybe a productive August or September but other than that it may be wise to expect nothing from him until next season. I understand that he used to be an absolute stud and he's still only 31, but he's not going to come back after a year and a half of injuries and just start producing right away. I'd keep an eye on him for next season...

I expect him to immediately go on the DL again
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I really can't wait for Maggs to come back and have a HUGE half season, I drafted him in the 1st round last year of my keeper league for some reason over Manny because he put up like #'s but could get 10 steals a year...ya...big mistake. He owes me big!

As a Sox fan? You should be ashamed of yourself and duly punished... It's only right that such a decision is haunting you.

Awwww. Is somebody a little testy because they finally realized the yanks aren't going to make the playoffs this year? It's ok we understand ;-D

I'd hardly count the Yankees out of the playoff picture in mid-June. And I loathe them...

Magglio's injuries have hidden the fact that he's been in a clear decline for the last 3 years. Moving from Chicago to Detroit is only going to hurt his numbers even more.

Oh yeah, and there's the risk of future injury too.

He's a better option than a lot of players, but expecting anywhere near his 2002 or 2003 production would be a mistake, in my opinion. I hope he proves me wrong though, he seems like a real stand up guy.
