He's a gamer. He's not playing for the $. The biggest concern for me is if he breaks his skull crashing into an outfield wall. Avgs. go up and down depending a lot on luck, but last year was no contract year bump.

He fell to the fifth in my league, and while I'm not in love with him, if he repeats the numbers from last year he's a suped up Carl Crawford. If he doesn't, its still pretty good to have a guy who hits 20 hr, steals 35-50, and bats fourth (lots of RBI chances). From talking to people I respect, everyone expects him to have a much worse year, so i don't think you will get any real value for him. i think the fact that he increased his walk rate from the previous year is a good sign, and he might have finally realized his potential. I bet he didn't even think he would steal 50 until it happened, so he might try again. Also, it looks like he only has 3 seasons of > 500 ABs, so I don't know if anyone knows what he's really capable of now that he's been seeing a lot of major league pitching on a regular basis.

Bottom line, he's not worth a third, but he's worth the risk if he falls to 5th or lower.

hmm i think 5th is usually around where he's drafted so i wouldn't say he fell.
