Petco really hurts his value, but I am drinking the Kool-Aid. 20-20 definitely a strong possibility, but it might come with a .255 BA.

Im having a hard time seeing Maybin being a more valuable fantasy player than Fowler.
he may hit a couple more homre runs (but theyll both hit so few thats its essentially a wash), but Fowler's greater number or runs, rbi, and OBP (in one of my leagues anyway) more than makes up for that.
How many bases do you think Maybin will swipe this year?

See, I don't see their homers as a wash at all. I think Maybin will hit about twice as many as Fowler (15 to 8). I do like Fowler, I drafted him in my only league as a 4th OF but despite his advantage in runs and avg he has even more k's than Maybin. I can see Maybin swipping around 25 if he stays in the leadoff spot...he's running more often and has a better success rate.

I didnt realize maybin has that kind of power... i thought he would maybe top out at 12-15 max since hes never hit more than that in any 600AB in the minors and now half is games will be in Anti Bomb Park
