Is Holliday this year's new 5 catagory breakout stud?

Postby Blade » Wed Feb 08, 2006 9:36 pm

He was on fire last season with 64 RBI after the all-star break. He finished the year with 68,19,87,14,.307, in 479 total at bats.

So, is he going to be a 5 catagory stud this season?

He's worth drafting if he is starting in LF, an so far it looks like he is.

I didn't realize his splits were soooo bad.

.357/43/12/52/8
.256/25/7/35/6

Don't worry blade, you're not the only one who is really high on him. In my recent expansion draft some guy took him second overall. Perhaps he is being a bit overhyped. He is only 26, so there is room for improvements.

I am thinking he will be and he has a very good chance to breakout this year. He is one of many i will be targeting this year.

I'd love to draft a guy like that who's batting cleanup in Coors but he's going REALLY early in some of the different mocks I've seen.

Holliday is a great fantasy player, but I think he already broke out, and is now valued too highly.

Holliday is being massively overrated. People see his numbers last year and predict insane numbers. The only reason he is any good is because he hits in Coors, but even Coors doesn't guarantee anything. There was a period before his injury where he was perfectly healthy and not showing any power in Coors. Yet all anyone looks at are his numbers following the injury. He is not the next Bay.
