How? Juan put up 23 HR, 66 RBI, .288 avg before the all-star break and had 8 AB after the break. Match that with even a crappy OF off the WW and you will have at least 30+ HR and 100+ RBI.

I was lucky enough to trade away both before their injuries last year. And I would say that those trades helped me win my league, along with the production they gave me before I traded them.

I'm gamling on Juan Gon this year, and I'm getting him very late in my drafts. He's in a good lineup, and if he stays healthy he could be huge (40 HR, 150 RBI) so it's hard not to take a chance on him. Especially if you have Dye on your team. He sucks even when he's healthy, and is in a terrible lineup. So I can't see why anybody would want him.

Pick up Juan, keep Floyd and drop Dye's ass to the curb.

I agree...dump Dye and take Juan Gon. Juan is on a great looking offense team and when he is healthy he produces big.

I am on the juan gon bandwagon here, especially being able to get him late in a draft. Getting undervalued players of his caliber who pan out play a big part in winning championships, not just picking the players by what they did last year. Juan, if healthy, should be a top 5-10 outfielder. I think he played up his injuries a little bit in the recent past because his teams were out of contention and he wasn't happy with his surroundings. He is happy now and is playing with his buddy Beltran. All this looks paints a picture for steal of the draft imo.
