I feel ya, I took him 131 overall... after Kendrick and Delmon Young :~( Yet I'm somehow in 1st place :-?
I cut ties with Gordon and he cleared waivers in a 14 team H2H league... just an indicator of how much he sucks :-P

I'm not giving up just yet... he was dropped in my 12-team league and I used my high waiver claim on him (CBS league, so waivers aren't as valuable as in Yahoo since everyone is pretty much already in the database). I'm using him as my backup 1B/3B option, hoping he gets hot in the second half - too much upside.

He's most definitely on my watch list, so I'm keeping an eye on him... but I feel better about watching him when he's not on my bench :-)

I needed the roster space, so I cut him and Delmon Young loose over the past week. :-o

I'll probably get burned by one if not both of them, if they heat up and someone else grabs them before I do.

I heard a rumor he hit a HR. Can anyone verify this?

I must have been doing cartwheels, I was so happy. I made a trade for Gordon earlier this year and missed out on his first 2 HR's on my team's bench.

Does anyone think he can turn into what he was projected coming out of college? I mean didn't scouts project 30 homers and a decent number of stolen bases?

I'm thinking of buying low on Gordon. In my keeper league I just traded away Arod for HanRam so I'm looking for a 3B keeper. Third base is starting to get thin with Cabrera and Braun making position moves. It's a bit risky though, just don't want to give up too much for him. You guys think he is going to turn things around eventually? Thanks
