Anyone have him rising on their list? injuries are a concern but he has looked pretty damn good so far. Any projections?

Hes rising on my lis for these reasons . 1.) he has the talent, inuries a concern but people do get healthy 2.) Braves always make great moves & it seems whoever they plug in outs up huge #'s


unfortunatley i wasnt able to grab him in my draft, & now that hes batting like .900 w 4 homers the owner wont trade him

"Average Projections" of 14 mainstream sources for Drew (altho how can you even guess with his injury history?):

402 AB/ 22 HR/ 67 RBI/ 71 R/ 6 SB/ .293 AVG/ .903 OPS

As a long time cardinal fan, i don't care if he hit a homer every at-bat. the guy just finds ways to get hurt, especially when he is playing well. I may eat my words, but i seriously doubt it. I'd avoid him like Moinica Lewinski with a cold sore.

Every year I think he's going to stay healthy and have a huge year. And evry year I'm wrong. I'm not falling for it again, maybe! He looks great in spring and he'll look great sitting on your bench/DL most of the year. He's not worth an early round. Let someone else take the injury prone Drew. Trust me.

Even though he's not on my team, I'd like to see Drew have a decent year. Inevitably he'll get hurt at some point but for once I'd like to see the potential become a reality.

I couldn't have put him any further down the OF list before Spring Training games......and I'm so mad...just watching him RAKE!

Not sure if he'll be undervalued or overvalued in my draft anymore, but I won't pull the trigger unless the rounds fall really late, and my OF is already put together.

Which means he will freaking blow up this year on some guys team in my league that doesn't even know the history.

he's definitely rising on my list...but that's not saying much since he wasn't on my list of the top 50 OF's to begin with.
I'd consider him as a #4 OF, and definitely grab him as a #5 OF...if he happens to fall that far, but with the hype, that's unlikely.

I have to admit, it does seem like the all around situation is primed for "this to finally be it." People do get healthy, Marcus Camby has missed minimal playing time in hoops this year.

Still, I'm sure with all this hype he's one of those guys that I know someone else will take before I get interested. As of now I might take him at round 13 and hope the bad luck cancels itself out.
