kearns scares me because he is begining to prove himself injury-prone, but i'll still take his superstar potential in a hitters park over klesko's mediocrity in a pitcher's park

Well I am a Reds fan so I am bias but I know from watching Austin that he is going to be a great ball player. Look at his ava and HR before he got hurt. Hes not a fluke, he just hit some bad luck.

I'm not ready to give up on Klesko yet.

Although, and correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Kearns' injury last year was kind of a freak occurrence. If I remember correctly, that was on the day when they were playing in Wrigley with winds blowing out at about 40mph, with just enough rain to keep everything slick. I think the score was about 14-13 when they called the game after 3 innings, with about 8 or 9 HR's. Kearns slipped in the wet grass and really jacked up his leg.

It doesn't really sound like a very likely scenario, so maybe I dreamt that game up, but I do recall him going down with a leg injury during that game, and me being really pissed off that I missed out on like 5 HR's on my fantasy team.

I like Kearn's upside more than Klesko's.

Kearns injured his shoulder last year sliding into home. It was definitely a freakish sort of injury. Altough he's more than 100 games in his 1st 2 seasons, I think its a little premature to tag him as "injury prone". After all, he's only 23.

The book on him is that he's got a quick bat and 30 plus HR potential with all the tools to be a complete hitter. This might be the year he puts it together....
