But his BA and HR's were both very high last season. Atkins BA will go up from where it is right now but he is not a home run hitter, there is nothing in his past that says he's ever going to hit 29 home runs again. In the minors he never hit more then 15 home runs in a given season, and in the pros he hit 13 in his only season. (29 came out of no where.)

16-21 hrs 100-110runs 95-105rbi with a 295-310 BA sounds reasonable.

Well, a lot of guys (myself included) drafted him hoping last year was just a prelude to his 27-year breakout. It's way to early to tell at this point, but I'm thinking you may be right about his power fluke.

I tend to agree with both of you...I drafted him in the 19th round of my keeper league last year, and was rewarded with a top season. However, I do think 2006 has the possibility to turn into the exception and not the rule, which is why I'm trying to unload him will he still garners Top 5 round return.

Wouldnt you want to get him back out on the field after going 0/5 and try and boost his confidence?
