.315, 20 HR, 80 RBIs, 90 R, and about 15 SB. Still very good, but I'm just not sold on him yet.

So we're now just over a third of the way through the season and Rios is over .350, 14 HR, 48 RBI, 42 R and 8 SB. While I think your BA projection will be fairly close, and the SB figures won't be too far off, the only way the rest of your numbers will be even close is if he gets hurt. He'd have to have a slump of monumental proportions not to sail past 20 HRs and 80 RBIs.

Remember I said I would enjoy being wrong, well so far I am. :-D

We'll see how it goes the rest of the season, though. I never said that at the pace he was going he wouldn't be able to reach those numbers, I just didn't expect him to keep that pace up. He's impressed me by nearly doubling his walk total since the time of that prediction, and obviously he keeps hitting those home runs which he wasn't hitting last season.

Another HR tonight gives him 15 on the season. He's been doing this long enough now this year to convince me he's for real.

Still, that's a very good trade.

BTW, another HR and BB for Rios tonight. ;-D

Excellent trade because no rookies or guys like mike cameron have any value in my league. So trading is nearly impossible right now. Either way I think they could post very similar number this year.
