What are your opinions on him? Do you think he will repeat last season? What are your projections?

Interesting you brought this up because I was just pondering Mr. Ellis. A lot of sources I've checked have him ranked 200 overall, others much higher, and other still not even ranked. As far as value goes, he doesn't seem to be gaining a lot of popularity in the auction circuit either.

I think the consensus is up in the air. I think an overall rank around 200 is appropriate, but it's a total toss up.

I like Ellis a lot and have him pegged as an excellent sleeper. His second half last year was great, and it seems like the more playing time he got the better he got. He cut way down on his strikeouts and improved quite a bit on his plate discipline. I'm not saying he's going to project that production over the whole year, but I think he's definitely worth a look once the bigger names are off the board.

I haven't been able to figure out why he's not getting more attention this offseason. It makes me think I might be missing something cause I think he's going to be a great value pick.

i definately think ellis is in for a good season. he started last season splitting time due to the fact he was coming off a torn labrum and still put up good numbers for a 2b. The A's have stocked their line-up with some rbi guys finally and he will be setting the stage for them this year, big bump in runs this year

I got Ellis in round 19 in a 10 team draft. I think he will be a real bargain. He posted real nice numbers after the break. One of the reasons I drafted him , is that he's also eligible at ss . Great OPS for a middle infielder.

Agreed. I think that he will be undervalued this season. I wouldnt be surprised if you can take him as the 10th second baseman in your draft. Not bad if he puts up 20HR, .290, 90 RBI, 90R - which I think he will.

90 rbi seems to be a tad too optimistic imo.

As is 20 HR.

Bradley or Chavez might have trouble getting more than 90 RBI in that lineup.
