Why so low on Melvin Mora?

3-year stats show more AB, fewer results... isn't there a saying like "the trend is your friend," or something like that?

2004: 550 AB, .340/.419/.562, 27 HR, 104 RBI
2005: 593 AB, .283/.348/.474, 27 HR, 88 RBI
2006: 624 AB, .274/.342/.391, 16 HR, 83 RBI
Image + Image = 762

HGH?


you hit the nail on the head...

i think he is off the juice now so im staying away from him.

i always try to draft guys who i think are still juicing

Mora is now mediocre at best and on the downside of his career at a relatively deep fantasy position. He's not on any of my teams right now as I think his best days are well past him.

Im not high on him, but he is going awfully low in draft, sometimes not drafted at all...

I think he can muster 90 R, 15 HR, 75 RBI, 10 SB and a .275 AVG

Thats not too shaby for a bench spot at the end of your draft ;-D
Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

yea he still deserves to be drafted in deep leagues with 12 or more teams. i have him as my CI in 1 league, took him at around 260th pick. most decent CI's were gone at that point, so it made sense. i do like the fact that he will steal you about 15 bases.
