I only got him on 1 team but i like him. He's alot like Austin Kearns, maybe less power. He is a NL ROY sleeper candidate, since the favorites don't win alot (Fielder/Hermida). I think he could hit 20 hrs in Wrigley.

1 game isn't enough for me to rush out and drop my run of the mill 4th OF for him. I want to see more from him than one game.

If you expect a lot of HR's don't pick him up.

His value is in decent contribution in hr/sb (in the 10-15 range) and consistant average. I have him in a deep 14 team league 6 keeper league in which I didn't get a draft pick until the 8th round (I'd traded a lot of picks to fix up the team I took over at the end of last year). He's very valuable for where you can get him but probably isn't worth a pickup in 3 OF 12 team mixed leagues.

...exactly so I'll be missing out on him. He wasn't exactly a highly touted prospect so this could just be a fluke. I'll hold off on him, I don't see anything in him.

I got him for $1. I predicted 25 -30 HR from him this year. I don't think it was one good outing I noticed his skills at the end of last year.

I don't think it's a fluke. He was pretty good last season and I'd be very surprised and even more disappointed if he ends up being a 2 month wonder in the bigs.

This could just be the "irrational cubs fan" in me but i like to think I have a realistic view of where we're going. i mean, we're a lock for WS champs this season so... :-D

He was a 1st round pick (32nd overall). He was a career .309 hitter in minors, with a .380 oba.
