Josh Willingham = Underappreciated?

He was one of my 'Two Up' Left Field picks pre-season.

Seems to be justifying that call, at least for now ;-D

He must be pretty good if I traded Ortiz and Willingham for Teix and Beltran! ;-D ;-) :-D

Eh, he's alright. I have him a few teams. The problem is his value is mostly determined by his high RBI total, and I'm not convinced that he will continue to drive in runs at this kind of pace.

I actually need to drop an OF in one of my leagues and it is between Willingham and Chris Duncan. I'll probably drop Duncan but I am waiting it out until there is a clear winner between the two. I don't feel like trying to trade... this is a public league and it is a major pain to make trades, plus I will win this league regardless.

He's solid and could easily be a top 100 guy. Not a stud, but very good.

I am fighting with having to drop him. He has done great for me up to this point but kendrick is off DL so i have to drop someone and it looks like it is Willingham. any thoughts on this?

I'd rather drop Youk.

I might have said the same about Torii Hunter or Magglio Ordonez a few weeks ago...

Youk is doing really well right now. You think Willingham will out perform Youk going forward?

In a completely Baseball Leftovers type of way, I would have to say yes.
