What are your thoughts about Lance Berkman??

Postby daniel80111 » Tue Apr 01, 2008 5:36 pm

Is he on the verge of having a career low year?? I feel like he is only regressing and he doesnt have much offensive potential in front of him.

He's fat and he sure doesn't look anything like Elvis.

Berkman also struggled this Spring. Doom doom doom...!!!!

Xavie Nady had a miserable spring while Hamilton was unbelievable. Nady went off last night and Hamilton had an O'fer.

I know that one game doesn't mean that much, but I don't care too much about Spring.

Well he is 32 so we can say that he's past his prime years but he's still a top tier OF. I see no reason why he can't still post a 100/35/100/.300 season.

smoovethug, with that said would you trade him straight up for Cole Hamels if you needed pitching help?

hahaha, I thought that might be the answer that was coming. I drafted him with the 4th pick in the 3rd round in a basic 5x5 roto league, I think I might just offer him for a early 4th round pick in Cole Hamels. I hate trading down...argghhhh

I also used to feel shortchanged when I "traded down" according to the draft results, but once the season starts you have to just forget about the draft. Projections aren't perfect.
