What is the deal with this guy. You have to love a 2nd baseman with the elusive speed/power mix but for some reason I just don't trust him. My league awards points for everything under the sun and it seems like he K's a lot and grounds into double plays a lot, etc. Then he'll hit a homer but it kind of negates itself given his other struggles. Does he have upside anymore or is he a what-you-see-is-what-you-get type of guy? Will he even finish in the top 8 or so of all the second basemen? Thoughts? Thanks!!

He's had 11 at bats. I'm not worried yet. No reason for him not to go 20/20 and bat .270 and strike out 100 times.

You just plug in B. Phills and do not watch him day to day. Makes it easier. He will get it done

Calm down, take a few deep breaths ... he will do what he has always done. If you've never owned him before, he can defiantly be streaky.

I've owned him two years in a row and got tired of the streakiness, so this year I went with...Ian Kinsler !+)
