Hello All


In my league it seems that Alex Gordon is a player that is picked up by everyone at some certain point due to his potential. Every time everyone is burned. After seeing impressive spring numbers (Yea i know, he can hit AAAA pitching) i picked him off of waivers... He is looking pretty good. For all those who have flirted with the idea of alex gordon... Will this be his longly awaited breakout year?

I wouldn't drop a proven commodity for him, but I like the fresh face of this KC team and think it could be his time to step up. Kind of like how Delmon Young took a while to come into his own... so if you can take a flier I say why not.

help me out?

I dropped Bill Hall for him. My last pick in the draft. I would never consider dropping a proven commodity for him

I am on the wagon. Reports in KC was that he has always been a hard worker but that he had put on too much muscle over the past few years. He is now down to where he was back when he was a top prospect. Add that with a nice spring and a good start to the season and I think he will have a nice year. Not great but a nice bench OF with spots starts for injuries.

I like Gordon, especially as a keeper. When Moustakas and Hosmer are in the lineup with him, watch out.

Interesting point about losing the muscle. Texeira is saying that he didnt work out like crazy during the winter and focused on stretching instead. He is attributing his good start to this. My outfield is nelson cruz, bautista, adam jones, brett gardener, denard span, and jose tabata... add in a breakout alex gordon and i think i have a solid outfield that hits for power and has speed can get me some rbis and score runs... could use help in the average department though.. we play head to head each category and its really important to have a nice balance which i believe i have struck
