Good article Snakes. ;-D

The problem that I see with McLouth is that 7 of his 13 HR's came in one month. He never really displayed that degree of power in the minors so I'm a bit concerned that his power spike merely reflected a nice hot streak. Only time will tell I guess. Not a bad flier for this year though, especially if he can wrestle the CF job away from Morgan.

Those projections are generous, and he will most likely platoon like he did 2-3 years ago.

It's McLouth, not McClouth. For your projections, he should be called McLovin.

I think McLouth is a great late-round SB source, but I don't really agree with the prospect that he can slug 15 HR's. PT is also an issue. I did have him on my club in 12 Angry Men last year. Nice spot start if you need a bit of speed. ;-D

true, but to be fair, his AB spiked during that month as well.
