Jeebus H. Damon. No one has said the obvious choice? Take Burroughs. He's at the top of a potent lineup. He'll give you average and runs. His spot is secure, unlike all of the other candidates, and he's hot. Take Burroughs and don't look back.

That's because it's not an obvious choice.

1. SD does not have a "potent" offense. They should fall right in the middle of all major league teams.

2. Burroughs will give you average and runs. Blake and Munson, who are both as secure as Burroughs, will easily dominate Burroughs in HRs and RBIs, since they hit in the middle of AL line-ups, while Burroughs hits behind the pitcher. Burroughs and Blake each stole 7, while Munson stole 3.

3. Burroughs is playing in a new park with unknown park factors.

4. Who gives a **** whether or not a player is "hot" after 4 games?

The choice really depends on what you need. If you need average and runs, Burroughs is your choice. If your team is weak in HRs and RBIs, Burroughs offers you squat and you ought to look at other options.

Shea Hillenbrand is a guy who gets no respect. But he'll give you good average, RBIs, and 20-something HRs. I'd see if he's available, if you are looking for a guy on the cheap.

I agree...Burroughs was all the hype in 2002 when he came up...he was projected as a real stud...this is sort of his make or break year, so I would grab him and expect maybe .280 and 80 runs

I just want to make the point that when you're talking about Sean Burroughs, you're not talking about deep sleepers. When you're deciding between Keith Ginter, Jose Hernandez, and Ramon Martinez, come back and we'll talk. !+)
