5-5 today!! Man this guy knows how to play just a good consistent hitter with solid power. A .300 20 100? Possible? I think so!!!

Huh, not sure. Well, the 100 RBI seems pretty impossible considering how much of the season he's missed. He'd have to be on a 110-120 RBI pace, b/c he has lost about 100 AB relative to other hitters.

He could easily finish with 20 HRs but is more likely to be between 12-15, he's a flyball hitter and has shown decent if not mind-blowing pop in the minors (17 HR/515 AB in AAA in 06, another 12 in 377 last year).

He actually has more speed then power, I could more easily see him hitting 20-25 steals. He has decent value in AL-only leagues and might be alright in mixed leagues that start 5 outfielders.

I'm a beleiver. Picked him up a little over aweek ago and he has been in my lineup since (replacing a slumping Ibanez who I've benched). Hope he can keep this up. Along with Jay Bruce (who I picked up a couple of days after Fransisco) they are carrying my team.

Yeah, who is this guy? It helps that CLE played at TEX but looking at his splits, he's pretty good whether it's home vs away, right vs left.

Does he have starting LF job and where will he bat?
