I stopped myself from posting a thread about him yesterday. Instead, after careful consideration, I unceremoniously dropped edit: some dude for him ( 14 team points league, steals mean squat). Today, he extended his hitting streak to 7 games, going a whopping 15-30 with 4 HRs, 11 runs scored and 7 RBI over that span- 2/5 tonight with a HR, while he was fortuitously in my lineup.
Is this going to last? No. This is, after all, Alex Gonzalez, the one with a .248 career average and 93 HRs spread out over 3688 ABs, but it shouldn't stop anybody from riding him now, while he's red hot.

He's a streaky hitter, and I thought at the beginning of the year that he might have a chance to duplicate 2003, hitting in the Great American Bandbox. Not enough to draft him, but when Thome went on the DL, I did pick up A-Gon to replace him in my 15-team league, and hopefully he'll stay hot until Thome comes back.
(taps little picture of a microphone)... is this thing on?
No disrespect, but I think I would have found a way to keep Victorino.
Hitting where he does is huge, especially since Utley and Howard haven't even fully got it going yet. I know the steals aren't as big, but you still get a couple points per right?
Right now Victorino is up there in "points" with the likes of Holliday, C Lee, Crawford......
I know he probably doesn't finish up there with them, but he will definately out point Gonzalez this year, don't you think?
I guess it depends on what your roster looks like, but I think I'd find a way to have the Flyin Hawaiin on my team.
I bought him for a buck at my NL only roto auction because of his ball park and lineup. I saw possibilities for some power cat #'s. So far, so good. Will he hit like this all year....well, no, he's not gonna hit .300 and finish with 7 dongs for every 9 of Dunn's. But for a $1 MI in an NL only.....pretty happy.
