Adrian Gonzalez?

Postby Cobra_Kai » Fri Apr 13, 2007 6:10 pm

Thoughts on this guy? He had a pretty nice season last year, he's young, and it looks like he's playing pretty hot. What numbers should we be expecting here? He's a FA in one of my leagues, and I'm just wondering why he's ranked so low.

He's a real nice player. His numbers will be affected by his home park and lackluster supporting cast, but I think he'll be close to a top 10 1B this year. I can't think of any format where he should be on the FA list.

Grab him now. Adrian Gonzalez should not be a FA. He's the Padres best player IMO.

Pick him up. I drafted him in all three of my leagues. He had a great rookie season, especially considering the park. I could see 30 hr and a .290 average this season.

His ceiling is probably .300, 30 HRs, I'd expect closer to .290-.295 and 20-25 HRs, definitely worth owning in leagues with 10 or more teams ;-D
