I'm not. His .277 BABIP was well under his career avg of .319 so he's bound for an uptick in the BA department. His speed is still fine and he steals bases at a very good rate so I see no reason why he won't steal at least 20 this year. He'll push 20 HR in that ballpark and hitting in the middle of the order should net him nice R/RBI totals. He's still only 29 so it's not like he's too old to produce or even way past his prime. 20/20/.280 in the 13th or later is fine for me.

Aaron Harang anyone (and not just cause he's ugly :-b )...this is a guy that was being drafted as a Top 10-15 pitcher just a few years back...for where you can get him i think he's a steal

I think Tru got his sexy back when he signed with Boston, a lot of people are expecting a rebound in power numbers.. He did got for $17 in our league wr.

I see both sides. While he will never provide the numbers we expected, people are avoiding him like the plague, which I think is a mistake (expecially in that park!)

Berkman is considered "unsexy" and I think he has a ton of value this season. I'd prefer him over Derrek Lee or Billy Butler, who are the other 1B being drafted around him.

Mags - dude hit .375 post all star. Positive spring reports: Leyland "Magglio looks like a totally different player". He is waaay off radar from what I have seen in some mocks. Dont expect much more than 20 hrs, but a 85, 20,110,0, .310 statline is very possible for a guy going in the last few rds of most mocks.
