Carlos Gonzalez, OF COL

Carlos is on fire and he's finally getting playing time. Anyone else riding the Carlos train this week? After the Rockies/Nats series they play 17 of the next 20 games at home. He might even run a little. What are everyone's thoughts on him?

Hopefully he can keep it up. Everyone thought he was going to be a 5 tool star. HOPEFULLY he is!
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Picked him up in a dynasty league at the beginning of the year and have been anxiously awaiting a breakout. Looks like he's well on his way and playing in Coors can't hurt either.

Another HR tonight. He's absolutely scorching the ball lately.

I'm so pissed about him. I carried him for a couple of months waiting to reap the rewards. Then at the end of July his PT had dwindled to almost nothing. The last straw came when he didn't start either game of a double header on July 30th so I cut him. Immediately after that, he goes on fire and has since been moved to the top of the lineup. I would pick him back up, but I play in a limited FA move league and need to save my last pick in case of an emergency during the playoffs. I'm hoping he cools off soon before anyone else in my league notices him, but I'm afraid it might be too late.

I've boarded this train a couple of times this year, and currently have a ticket.
He can become something awesome, would help if he can keep his BB/K around the .50 area. ;-D ;-D

3 Hr in 4 Games.... can't complain! Everyone has always said the guy has an amazingly high ceiling, he just has to reach it. As soon as he was traded to Colorado I traded for him in my dynasty league, as playing in Arizona or Oakland doesn't exactly help out any hitters. The guy continually laughed at me until now. Many people think he can put up perennial 20 hr 30 sb seasons, which is great from the OF.

Not trying to be that guy, but Arizona has consistently one of the best hitters parks in the league. ;-D

Ive had him in my dynasty league for a few years now, waiting patiently for him to break out. The first sign was in AAA this year where he had 59 RBI in 45 games. When he was called up it was slow going for awhile but now he seems to be figuring things out. Hopefully it will continue so I can call him up next year to be my OF #4.
