I got him in Round 17 of a 12 Team Keeper. This was before he was announced the starter.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

Does anyone think he guy produce like Zimmerman did last year? I drafted Zimmerman late last year in a 12 team redraft and unfortunately dropped him before his second half improvement. How do these guys compare?

Gordon has more power and more speed. He also has more upside.

Therefore, you think he could put up equal to better numbers than Zimmerman did last year?

On Yahoo! I have a roster message that says "Alex Gordon is injured and on your starting roster." Is there any truth to this or is it just Yahoo.

I don't think he'll produce like Zimmerman because he isn't as polished, but I do think he's worth more of a risk than Zimmerman just because he could go-off and hit 25 while stealing 15. Guys with his talent are too hard to predict; Zimmerman was a little easier, with less possible result deviation IMO.

He will hit more homeruns and steal more bases than Zimmerman in 2006, but the Nationals' lineup was far from a joke last season, while KC still doesnt have a solid set of experienced bats.
