He had 1 good year and it was mostly due to his batting average, there was basically no reason why people had him ranked so high coming into this year. He'll end up with about 20 Hrs by years end but you could get a WW 3rd basemen that can do that.
Count me in that group...I drafted them back to back with consecutive picks (somehow they fell to picks 40 and 41), and proceeded to package A-Ram in order to get Berkman after A-Ram's inital hot start.
I still think Atkins will end up better than A-Ram...plus I got Berkman now...if Atkins is still average in mid-June, then I'll think about making a move. His value right now is too low to do anything but ride him out anyway...but like I said, I still think he'll turn it around. Go Garett!
