You're not going to get peak value for him so I think you'll have to rough it out. Anyway, he's still at least as good (right now) as any other fantasy 2B ... :-P

#1 2b in all of fantasy ball.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

a slump was inevitable with his wild swings and lack of plate discipline, I just didnt think the slump would last this long.

I'm hearing that pitchers have figured out how to pitch to him and get him to back off the plate. Just wondering what you guys thought about how his stats will fare the rest of the way. I hope he has a good tear left in him because my team is slowly sinking...

The steals are what make the difference to me. Also, you heard it from me first, but Kent will make Boone look like a minor leaguer next year.

I agree but the problem is that I drafted him THIS year thinking that he would do it sooner rather than later. :~(

Actually, I think that my first 5 picks (with me picking 9th) were:

1. Oswalt
2. Kent
3. Berkman
4. Glaus
5. Abreu

And I'm not even a 'stros fan. LOL It's amazing that I'm even contending this year. Can you say.......Mulder and V. Wells?
