What do you guys think about his value? You think he'll produce when he comes back?

I'm trying to decide who to hold on to, Walker or D. Lee.
if it's Griffey...

Yeah he'll probably put up good stats when he's healthy. Which won't be very long, I don't think. He's probably the most injury proned player in baseball history (Griffey doesn't even compare). But he shouldn't be a FA.

I think Walker can be an asset, but in due time. Remember he didn't have more than 10ab in Spring Training. I'd say in any home stand after his first month back he can produce some numbers any fantasy owner would like to see....as long as he stays healthy.

He was pretty pedestrian last year. Im not worried about his injuries(cause i just assume he will be hurt later on) but i am worried his skills are diminishing at a very rapid pace

Kinda unrelated, but do people here think he is a candidate for the HOF, or did he not put enough great seasons?

No way. He only has 351 career home runs and a .314 career BA. That's not bad but it's not even close to HOF numbers. Add on to that the fact that all HOF voters recognize the difference that Coors makes. He has had a great career but I don't believe it's remotely close to HOF worthy. My 2 cents.

I don't think BA and HR's are the only things that let you in the HOF. Lets say he plays 2 more seasons, and reaches 400 hr's. He also has 200+ SB's, and 1200+ Runs and RBI's. Pretty impressive numbers, but I still agree with you that he won't get in. He never had a GREAT 3-4 seasons in a row where he dominated.
