I have him close to 70 Rs, 25 HRs, 110 RBIs and hitting slightly above .300 with minimal SBs.

In most drafts I have seen he is severly underated.

His injury doesnt worry me very much at this point - he's had plenty of time to recover and has been playing regularly in the WBC and since then as well. There was one mention of a very minor flare up yesterday, but it wasnt anything serious.

This wasn't a serious problem. Ordonez is fine. He worked out today, and he's on the schedule to go to Vero Beach tomorrow to play the Dodgers. But for a manager who prides himself on perfection (and one just coming off what he calls a ``six-year sabbatical''), this kind of mistake was unacceptable.

i think those numbers are pretty reasonable, but not sure he'll crack 100 RBI's.

worries me too that he cant play in the cold


No one said he can't play in the cold. He can't DH in the cold - so what Leyland was saying is that Magglio suffers when he is forced to NOT PLAY when it is cold out.

I doubt Magglio will be called upon to DH very often, if ever.

(Of course, if the American League played real baseball - without any DH - this wouldn't be a concern at all. But that's an argument for another time).

Bobby Higginson did in 2000. He had a solid line of .300/30HR/102RBI/15SB.

Young and Pena flirted with 30, Young had 29 and Pena had 27.

I've heard that his knee is not right still. So I wouldn't take him
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I just traded him for Matt Clement in one of my deeper leagues; I thought that was quite the steal on my behalf.

I think he will bounce back nicely this year. Somewhere around .300/25/100

I hope he does. I have him as my primary RF, backed up by Brad Wilkerson and Chone Figgins.

But for Maggs? I have a strong pitching staff already, and he's just insurance. Can't complain.
