Nice writeup. ;-D

Rowand could certainly pay off some nice dividends this season. B-)

While I agree with Brendan Horton that Rowand is a nice bounceback candidate, I do think he overstates the ballpark factor.

While Citizens Bank Park is a nice hitters park, Rowand is coming from the New Comiskey, which if he forgets, was 2nd & 1st respecitvely in most homeruns hit the last 2 seasons.

You can argue the ballpark factor for increased projections for somebody like Wilkerson who is coming from RFK to Arlington, but not with Rowand.

If Rowand hits 2nd in Philly then I think .280, 95, 20, 85, 20 may be very possible, if he hits 6th or 7th then I think 2006 will resemble 2005.

Thanks for the feedback jmbdeuce (and Madison) ;-D

I had not forgotten that Rowand was coming from new Comisky in Chi-Town, but it being a Sleeper Article, I was inclined to state where he's going to be this season as a positive, hence the pushing of Citizens. At any rate, I'm glad you took the time to analyze my article. ;-D
