Speaking as an Oakland fan, I love this signing by the Angels. :-D

What does this do for his fantasy value? He should still be leading off, but in a much worse offense. Expect lower numbers across the board?

Compared to last year? Even if he was still playing in Texas you should expect lower numbers across the board.

My guess at Gary Mattews numbers in 07. Basically taking is three year running stats, and bumping up runs and stolen bases given he will lead off for the Angels, who like to run.

The SB and Runs probably make him 4th/5th type outfielder. Won't hurt you in batting average, but won't help either. I think RBI wise he might be pretty good for a leadoff man.

I'm not quite as optimistic as you are.

I think he's flat out junk who had a good year.

Boy it took a while but he finally lost his job to the better, more deserving player.

What is funny is that not a single person in this thread endorsed the deal at the time. FBC is smarter than MLB GMs. It's true. :-D
