Injury prone OF who hasn't shown contact skills that support an average over .260 or so in a good but not great lineup who has had one good year in his career and it came at age 29.

I find it shocking he doesn't get more love too...

Ludwick's track record doesn't support the idea that he can duplicate a season like he had last year to the full. However, as long as Pujols is in the lineup, the spillover effects still can have him hitting 25-30 HR with a .270 BA.

For he might have had a career year and very few think he can repeat it.

Rowand, Byrnes, Youk, Werth, and Ludwick have one thing in common.

the Pujols spillover in that lineup is ridiculous. Don't forget about Ankiel feeling that as well. The rest of the guys are able and w/potential. Schumaker gets onbase, Greene COULD have a break out year, and whenever Glaus comes back, I'd say Ludwick has plenty of support around him to have comparable numbers to last year. Probably not better, but comparable.

Still, too many other OF's out there that either "are" there or have more potential than Ludwick to take him any earlier than the 8 round in a 12 team league, imo.

Okay fine, they have like fifty things in common. But only one relevant to the discussion: 29 year old breakout players that are being drafted too early in most leagues, or in the case of Rowand and Byrnes, were drafted too early last year. If a player has a long track record of mediocrity and only one year of good production, and that one year is when he is approaching the downhill stage of his career, then they are almost a sure thing to regress, and are very likely to regress significantly.
