The back seems fine...this isn't a chronic injury. He injured it last year when teammates jumped on him during a home plate celebration....look for a nice year from him

I see him as somewhat of a sleeper. Even though I believe that with his swing he will be most affected by the moving back of the fences this year.

i'm VERY HIGH on mikey this year... ppl forget Sweeney had 144 RBIs w/ a .333 AVG and a sh*tty lineup one year!! When healthy, this guy is as good as any 1B and is capable of being top 5. From what i've read he feels good, looks good, and is coming into spring training close to full health. Lets not forget he's just 30 and should be in his prime. Dont be surprised if Mikey gives A-Rod a run for his money in the AL MVP race. With an improved Royals lineup and in good health, Sweeney can put it all together to the tune of

.330 30 HR 100 R 120 RBIs

That's asking for a lot, but just wait!
