Because in a 12 team mixed league outfielders than can hit .280 and drive in 100 with 20-25 hr's aren't hard to come by. They're a very small step above anyone you can grab from free agency.

100-RBI producers shouldn't be available all over the place unless it is a shallow league. A guy who will knock in 100 is probably worth a roster spot.

I never claimed that someone like Gibbons isn't worth a roster spot, only that there is a reason he doesn't get alot of love. There was around 30 players last year that had 20 HR and 90+ RBIs. Gibbons ranks near the bottom of those players in Runs Scored and he didn't have a single steal.

As far as being available all over the place, many off these types of players can be traded for at a pretty low value and every year there are a handful of new players who jump up into that class that went undrafted.
