He is a top 10 OF for sure, if you are looking for actual #'s I think he will be around .290, 100 R, 35 HR, 110 RBI, 5 SB

I won't be drafting him unless I get him around the 7th round or so.

I look at last year as an abberation, and have him poised for a big comeback.

I have him at 11th OF, and have some early early projections of:

.295 32HR 115 RBI 6 SB w/ just under a 1000 OPS(420+565)

In my book, this guy has way too many factors working for him.
Tough, switch hitter, great discipline, good power, good lineup around him (most of the time) and outstanding hitters park.

Facing Wood and Prior a bit will hurt, but you think he'll like Cincy's, Pittsburgh, and Milwaukee's pitching staff much?
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.

i dont see any signs that would lead me to believe that he would put up any better numbers than last year. The only reason i have him a few notches higher on my list is because of the park he plays in.

I'm going with a rebound year. ;-) Say .295-33-100.

easily a top 10-15 OF .... 30 hrs and 100 RBIs are very attainable ... Like someone said above ... he just has too many factors working in his favor .... . ;-D

Do you see any signs he will have the same year?

Do you see any signs he won't have a worse year?

I'm drafting him pretty high(I don't have my list done yet).

They guy is a freak...He's just a hard-nosed, baseball player. He knows how to hit a baseball. I think you'll be missing out if you expect last years numbers. IMO.

Oh, Berkman will be huge next year. I'm looking at .300+, 40 homers and 125 rbi's. He was hurt most of last season (just like Green). He'll bounce back and, judging by his age, will do more than 02.
