Why is Berkman so underrated????

Postby unclepaulie » Thu Feb 19, 2004 11:32 am

Is it because he doesn't look like a superstar? Because his numbers speak for themselves, even though he had a so called off year.

i dont think he is underrated. he is just at a position full of superstars and had an "off year last year" i've got him as the # 12 OF, counting soriano if he moves

define elite. i cant say id take him over guys like V. Wells, P. Wilson or Manny, so i think # 12 is pretty fair.

Better for us all. Him, Green, and Abreu you could get cheap and have a superstar OF worth on average about $35. You sprinkle in names like Bradley and Winn for depth and the utility spots and you'll dominate. Great, great, values.

Berkman had a crazy year last year so everyone has lost interest in him. I'd say it would be a good time to "buy low"

Why don't you thing that he is being rated at fiar value? Each year his numbers slip. he is settling into a 290 30-35 HR 100 RBI guy which are good but not great numbers. In our $260.00 auction league he won't go for more than $16.00-$18.00. If I were in a draft league i would not pick him before the 4th or 5th round, if that.

That's because he isn't settling into anything of the sort. He was a $37 value in '01 and $36 in '02 and had a lost year last season due to a lingering injury. If you can get him at $18 you'll be getting close to double that in talent. That's a steal in my book.

290 30-35 HR 100 RBI are not great #'s?? I think it is especially with his great K to BB ratio, not many guys can do what he does when everything is factored in.
