i dont know about hard numbers but a .315 AVG with over 100 runs would not be out of the question.
he is having a good spring too and should hit 2nd in that lineup

I think that people are down on a guy who other then last year has been a great second baseman. The guy if healthy could produce 300 100 10 60 15. Which is pretty good for a second baseman going in the 15th to 20th rounds sometimes lower.

I think he can be a top 10 2B but starting off the season I have him just outside of that gruop. I see a .305-11-65-83 type year with the average and runs being a low estimate. Could end up as high as .315-95.

Great sleeper. More teams grabing him now. He should score 100 not problem in that lineup at the 2 slot. I like him this year.

I like Loretta a lot this season. He's tailor-made for Boston's home park (good line-drive park and friendly for RH hitters) and will see plenty of good pitches given the strong lineup protection. Look for 300+ BA and 15+ HR. Plus, hitting ahead of Oriz and Manny he'll get 100 runs in his sleep. Could be top 5 2B this year.

great sleeper and he should be batting second in the sox line-up
plus he had a great spring

i was targeting him as a great sleeper in my draft tonight but someone else took him real early and got the jump on me

I got Loretta in the 21st round. I already had Soriano, but if he can get back to his numbers from 04 then I'll have 2 good guys at a very shallow position. Hitting in front of ManRam and Big Papi will definately help get his runs up there.
