I have him and he's been a dud as of late. Only reason I'm holding him for now is b/c he is 1B/OF eligible and continues to bat 5th in the Baltimore lineup.

not a stud, but i see something like:

75 25 85 .275

not bad at all as a 2nd or 3rd OF.

Definite breakout year for Gibbons.

He's shown in previous years that he has power and now that he is playing everyday and 5th in a good lineup he is due to breakout.

30 HRs and 100 RBIs should be the min, his ceiling could be 35-40 HRs.

He had a .SLG% of .515 last year and he batted towards the bottom of the order all year and hit 26 HRs in only 488 AB. He hit 28 HRs his 2nd year in MLB.

Watch out for gibbons this year. ;-D

He broke out last year, he just got hurt so the numbers don't look as good as they should.

I think he is capable of 30 HR and a .280 BA.

I don't know that he'll "breakout" but a solid season is likely. He's smashing alot of doubles this season, and he doesn't strikeout alot which is great in points leagues. He hits for decent average and pop. He'll be a solid OFer in that lineup.

This post could be from any time in the past four years, for each of which many people predicted a break-out season for Gibbons.

In my opinion it is time to say that Gibbons is decent back-up OF or 1B in fantasy who will get you a solid .280/25 if all goes well, but I do not think that he will ever be anything more than that.

Entourage is the best show! Can't wait until it's back

I think he's going to be a stud this year, definitely.
