exactly, post-hype. love it.

he is only 25 and showed good plate discipline in the minors. I'm thinking 25+ HRs and a .370 OBP. Great deeper league/ NL league value.

The price is finally right this year, too. I target him whenever possible.

Consider me someone who also like Weeks. I think his power/speed combo as is will be useful and better then average, but he's also got room for growth, like lots of growth. If he could hit righties like when he first broke in with the Brewers a .270 BA wouldn't be completely out of the question, couple that with his walks, and you've got a player that could score a ton of runs and steal a bunch of bases while also kicking in 15-20 HR's, certainly a player I'd like. I'll throw another Giant on the list of guys to keep an eye on. He'll be more useful in leagues that count stats beyond the 5x5 numbers, but if the Giants stand pat I could see Nate Schierholtz getting an opportunity to play, especially if the Giants are able to move Winn and go with the youth movement. Schierholtz hit very well in AAA, he doesn't have more then 15-20 HR potential in AT&T park, but since he is capable of being a doubles hitter and hitting for a high average in a very bad lineup, he could get a crack in the 5/6 spot which could produce some solid RBI opportunities with a solid average. More of an NL only or deep deep league sleeper, but he does have talent, and was a top 5 prospect in the Giants system according to BA last year.

Id like to see Howie Kendrick play over 140 games this year..... if hes healthy I think hes a great young stud at the 2B position.

I also am a fan of Gordon, Hermida, Delmon (he had 2 hr in the first 13 weeks 8 in the next 13)


What are the thoughts on Rick Ankiel? Hell be turning 30 but should be able to match that in home runs easily
