If Wilson gets traded to St. Louis, do you consider him an immediate must add? He has had decent numbers but has not been playing regularly in the recent games. What kind of numbers could we expect?

I would consider him a must-add in NL only leagues.
In mixed leagues, he would be worth a look if you are in need of power. The Pirates have screwed him around for years, if getting regular PT in St.Louis I would expect numbers approaching his 2004 totals- .264 Avg, 97 RS, 29 HR, 89 RBI.

I've seen enough of him to know that he's streaky as all heck. Even if he were in the Cardinals lineup, it's not going to help him hit away-breaking sliders. Maybe he'd be worth it for NL only if he plays every day...but I'd still only start him when he goes against lefties or is on a hot streak.

I am biased because I am one of the biggest Wilson believers out there. I do believe he is a must add in any deep league and certainly in NL only. Take a look at the 3 years before the injury year, see all the stats getting better in every category? The Pirate's lineup is garbage as well, and with regular playing time this is a 30 HR 100 RBI guy next year barring injury assuming he is with St.Louis and is playing regularly.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

if he ends up on the cardinals i'm still not sure he would play full time.
