i play in a 16-team, 5 keeper league and one team designated him as a keeper. ridicule quickly ensued.

Lofunzo is on point.

I start even thinking about it in the 15th round, if it's a good 12 team league and the options are starting to get real thin.

The problem with Griffey is that theres no middle ground its either all or nothing there chance of him putting up .290-30-95 its either gonna be .210-5-19 or .320-55-120, i'd take a chance on him in the last couple of rounds.

Heck yes I am drafting Griffey...in the 25th round. <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif>

Although he has been on my points team the last two years and I have won the league both times. :-?

15th or later is about right.

Has Griffey ever hit .320, 55, 120? Thats a huge upside projection for Griffey.

Id say something closer to .300, 35, 100 IF he stays healthy ALLl yr.

I root for Griffey because a healthy, successful Junior is nothing but positive for the game of baseball. When he's right, that swing is one of the most beautiful things you'll see. He's such a charismatic hitter that if he got healthy and got on a roll, he could vault back into the national public favor and be one of baseball's posterboys again.

With all that said however, I won't touch him until the late late rounds of my draft.

i have drafted him the last 3 years and gotten burned every year. each year going into spring training he is 100% healthy and then he'll hit 17 homeruns in spring training and lead the majors. i'll be pumped and then no sooner than 2 months into the season he goes out with *insert anything from a hangnail, missing arm, torn something, too tired to play...injury*. i've already gone 3 years and not gotten that career year that i've been waiting for. why should i stop now? i'd be livid if he blows up and i let him slip away. don't worry, i won't touch him before around 15. i'm not that dumb.

oh ya, by the way, i live in cincinnati so he's the only reason that we would ever want to see the reds play. the reds suck (i'm from pittsburgh so i don't like them).
