A couple weeks ago Baseball Prospective podcast had a discussion of players whose numbers were hinting at a sharp decline in skills. Sheff was discussed at length. Still, abosolutely worth owning on a Fantasy team but they expect a pretty steep decline ... steriod allegations notwithstanding. Who knows. Just another data point. You can check it out on iTunes a few weeks ago.

Who to start at Util: Sheff? Polanco?

I definately started Sheff.

I like him this year to crank it up. He and A-rod should heat up soon. !+)

Do not forget the injured thumb last season...and the thirty-how-many homeruns?

Sheff is a 20 year vet stud. That injury has nothing to do with being injury prone or age, as it was an accident. Obviously you can't start him with confidence until he gets back in the groove.

There is nothing left to say.

Another 0-fer today. Should we be getting worried? A wrist injury can really screw you up.

Sheffield was hitting the ball very hard today. Stick him in your lineup without worrying, he will be knocking them out of the park before you know it. Look for a big HR month either June or July (or both?) ;-D
