Larry Walker? Worth the wait?

Postby fug » Fri Mar 26, 2004 11:53 pm

What do you guys expect out of Walker this year??

A good year, or too many trips to the D.L. I have Walker and Nevin. Getting ready to dump Walker for Marlon Byrd or another more consistent player.

Whatchya think??

If healthy, a monster year. Something like .305-35-100. If hurt a lot, something more disappointing. I think hes a bargain on draft day though.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

On my sleeper list he always goes to early, but when I can grab him I defenitly think its worth it to have him on the bench, see what you can get out of him. [/list]

Just keep him and stash him on your DL. He'll put in some good games for you, especially hitting cleanup on the rockies :-)

if you can get him in the 14th round of the draft or later he will be a steal ;-D

I'm not sure why people keep using round # instead of pick #. Round 14 in an 8-team league is VERY different from round 14 in a 12-team league. Please use pick# to make recommendations.

He's not top 100 anymore. Will put up monster numbers at home when healthy. Draft at 140-160 and spot play him or ride his hot streaks.
