I agree. A lot of people think his numbers are where they are because of Coors, but Coors isn't what it used to be. He's putting up great numbers.

Before the season, there was a thread on Damon, Crisp, VWells, Holliday, on who would be the best. I picked Holliday. Wells probably is the best so far, but Holliday is right there.

Most overlooked player imo is Jose Lopez.

I imagine Matt Holliday is owned in several more leagues than Reed Johnson is... that's how I interpreted Mook's post, at least. :-?

Now, if we're talking about guys who are owned but still aren't getting the restpect, sure Holliday's there, but he's got nothing to complain about compared to Jose Lopez. Others noteworthy: Dan Uggla, Jose Castillo, Nick Swisher, Justin Morneau, and Orlando Cabrera.

lol, I was just thinking the same thing.

I got thrown off by the first we should start a thread part (not very difficult) and the explanation of how it works (somewhat self explanatory) and lasty by the statement that there are lots of them (do you think so or are you being sarcastic?)
