Don't forget that Dhalsim could slide under things and knock people on their butts too though!

Figgins is a good mid round guy if your have built a lot of power early and you need SB and don't want an AVG risk in a Gomez type guy later. Just really depends on what your draft looks like on whether or not he is a good pick.

2007 was a hand injury, 2008 was hamstring.


I put in chipper jones and it broke.


i think you need to install the Atlanta Braves plug-in they developed when they signed Mike Hampton

The current FBC rankings have him at 10th among 2B which is a bit low IMO. Hes easily a top 7 2B, maybe top 5. His HR/RBI admittedly give off a bit of a sucking sound, but not as much as last year. He's 2nd in the league in runs (leading 2B), 6th in SB (again leading 2B), and has a very solid .310 AVG (3rd among 2B, behind Utley by .002 and Sanchez by .003). On the non-fantasy side, he's walking almost as many times as he's striking out (51 to 58) and his OBP is approaching .400. Quietly, Figgins has become the 3rd ranked 2B on Yahoo (though he has about 100 AB on Zobrist in 4th).
