What are your guys thoughts on him this year. Hes playing pretty well and heating up these past few weeks. Could he put up stats along the lines of 25 HR 85 RBI and 20 SB?

Maybe something like Grady Sizemore last year.

quite simply no... he COULD, but i dont see it... i think more along the lines of 18 hr and 15 sb...hes currently hitting 6th, and this is working for the phils..his runs will be lower, but his rbi's could be in the 85 range. hes not bad as a 3rd or 4th OF.

As a Sox fan, I hated to see him go. However, he is hitting better than I expected him to. It is also a contract year. I expect him to do pretty well with that lineup. I am kind of upset I couldn't pick him up but oh well.

Yes he could and with a .300 BA to boot. A very under rated player in drafts this year.

So only 12 HR and 11 Sb the rest of the season? Sounds a bit pesimistic to me.

20-20 is well within reach. I like him for 80-85 runs and RBIs too.

Agreed. Guess that's why I ended up with him in most of my leagues. :-D

Sure he's an OK bet for 20/20. I think closer to 18/15. You know you'll get good production at home. :-]
