He will still hit 40 HR this year, which is all I draft him for.

I think projecting him for 40 this year is a stretch. He very consistently hit 40 in a very small park and I think you have to shave 2-5 HRs and 5-10 RBI off of his 3-year average now.

He actually steals 5-10 bases a year.

You clearly don't play in OPS leagues.

I'm intrigued to find out how they are going to handle playing time.

If you assume that we play the season with injuries turned off, what is their lineup?

Dunn, Dukes, Milledge in the OF with Johnson at 1B? Willingham and Kearns buried, or do they bury Dukes and Milledge (idiotic)

Dukes, Milledge, Kearns and Willingham are all righties, so it's not like there's a platoon option.

I'm guessing there may be a trade with Dukes or Milledge coming up, but that would be a mistake since I think both are undervalued.

No I do not. Most people don't although we changed to OBP this year which means Dunn will still go way higher than I would take him.

Wonder if I should take Nick Johnson off my sleeper list.

I remember a couple of years back when people projected him to steal 20+ bases. That was unreal.

He does move down my list, though he wasn't relatively high on it anyways.

Wow Dunn gets 2yr $20 mil and Abreu only gets 1yr $5 mil? Isn't there something wrong with that?
