to just include obp and not avg and slug % is silly. i think its far too early to project numbers for these guys right now, especially runs and rbi because you dont know where they're going to hit. also, i fully expect the dbacks to find a place for justin upton to play, but as of right now, he doesnt have a spot in the starting lineup.

BJ is hard to project due to his labrum injury. If he gets that corrected and he's back to normal, I could easily see a spike in his HR numbers. He also seems to play through a lot of nagging injuries which has prevented him from progressing like most of us thought. Hopefully he won't be one of those players who is always nicked up. BJ is a player to follow this offseason and heading into ST to see how he looks. I'll probably be targeting him if he is good to go.

Totally agree. His 2007 HR total IMO are more indicative. RUmp may want to chime in here. I think he'd agree with me though.

That is my thought. If BJ is healthy, he is a guy I will be targeting. Whether or not this will be clear by the spring is anyone's guess.
