The biggest factor might just be how dominant Cabrera is looking, though. The protection Ordonez is enjoying by hitting in front of Cabrera (up until this year Maggs was the cleanup hitter; now he's #3) is HUGE. Ordonez certainly looks really good and I would certainly roster him. Just don't expect more than 25 HR's.
I don't buy much that Rod Allen says. Him and Mario are Fox Sports suits who refuse to criticize the Tigers regardless of how they are playing. That being said, Magglio was bound to be a solid bounce back option this year and I'm not surprised that he's found success so far.
