Halo Homers wrote:I agree that he can be valuable piece of a fantasy team this year, especially in deeper leagues. Just don't expect 140 games played this year. Think 120 games, 500 AB. With his injury / health, I don't see him physically holding up playing full time OF. I think Diaz will get the ABs against LHP. Berkman will spell Pujols get 10 starts at 1b.
Albert played 159 games last year, 160 the year before, and 148 the year before when he was hurt. I doubt that Berkman gets 10 starts
Maybe he'll get 10 appearances there, but even then, I wouldn't expect that to happen until after the ASB at the very earliest. Pujols doesn't sit.
