He hit 31 taters in AAA in '04, for whatever that's worth.

I just jumped on Hawpe. I needed someone to pick up the slack in my outfield since Giles and Pierre average is hurting me.

So some of you guys are giving up on Wilkerson, huh? I just have that feeling that the moment I drop him, he'll find his stroke.

Anyway, I may kick myself down the road, but I am going to put my #2 priority waiver claim in for Hawpe. Hope he can put up some great numbers at home...

Exact same feeling. Maybe it'll take a couple weeks for Wilkerson to get back on track, everyone forgets about him, and he's still floating peacefully on the WW.

What stroke? Wilkerson is a career .255 hitter who has only come near 30 homers once in his career. Have to love the huge minor league numbers and home park for Hawpe, but giving up a #2 waiver slot does seem a bit intense

Isn't Wilkerson battling shoulder problems? I believe he was injured for most of 05 as well.

Yeah, the #2 waiver is pretty intense, but there is no way I'll get him in this league otherwise, and I really have a hole at OF. Got to take the chance.

I think Wilkerson's shoulder has definitely been a factor. I wasn't expecting a good AVG, but I was banking on a nice combo of 25 HR and 12-15 SB. I know it's early, but that's not looking too likely now if he doesn't bat leadoff...

Well, I'm in an 8 team league that counts Ks for hitters so Wilkerson was really killing me.
