In 2006 he had a great year and broke his hand. 2007's struggles could easily be attributed to his shoulder/hand injuries. This year he scuffled and they figured out that something was wrong and pretty much shut him down, so he will probably be completely healthy next year. I can almost guarantee he will produce better than his ADP next year. Everyone is going to be scared away by his last two years. Maybe he is done and his production was based solely on steroids, but he could be a huge bargain next year.
Stay away at your own risk. But if he's sitting there after round 10, I'm going to be pretty tempted to take him.
Talk to people that have watched him day in and day out.......he's not the same player at the plate at all......injuries seem to be a nice excuse and reason to believe for next year, but for those that buy into that, they'll end up regretting it.
