Am I the only one who thinks he's way too undervalued? I've seen mocks in which he hasn't even been taken. This guy has potential to hit 20 HR and bat 310, but I see guys like Eckstein and Nomar taken ahead of him. Am I missing something about him? Is he still hurting?

The only thing you're missing is his pretty poor injury track record. But yeah he could be a great value pick this year.

He is definetely being undervalued, but he is so fragile that I wouldn't want him starting for my team.
Worth a pick in late rounds IMO.

i had him last year, and he killed me with the constant injury time. Id take him late this year, certainly ahead of eckstein. Id probably take him ahead of nomar.

That's my point exactly. I wouldn't mind having him on my team, but I think it's too risky to have him as a starter. I would love to have him as a bench guy in case he does stay healthy.

2004 was a product of an abnormally high H% and a power spike he could never sustain. He repeated the H% last year but I have to stress that almost nobody sustains a 35%+ H% long term and I don't believe he will either. Best bet in my opinion is around a .290 average with 15 HR assuming no injuries. In short I don't think he's being undervalued at all.

Whether its injuries or talent Guillen is not the player he was in 2004. He's a good contact hitter but basically that would be the only area he can consitently contribute in.

Pass.

.290 with 15 home runs is pretty useful from your SS. Worth taking a late flyer on him if you have space on the bench.
