Yeah, unless your league count OBP he isn't worth it. All those walks don't help much in fantasy.

BTW - Moneyball is a great read. Check it out. ;-D

He might not going down quite as thought as orginally planned.
Hopefully Francona will temperaly move Mueller to 2nd and play Youkilis at third.

Although Bill Mueller is expected back in the Red Sox lineup tomorrow night after missing three games with a sore right knee, Youkilis (who is 4-for-8 with a homer) may stay in Boston a little while longer if manager Terry Francona can find him some playing time. Boston did not tax it's bullpen over the weekend, and may not need to recall a pitcher until later in the week.

I don't know of an online copy. You will have to venture to the library or bookstore to get a copy.

how old is he? he'd been in the minors a little while when moneyball was released, and that was a few years ago. he's one of the most famous prospects in baseball, but is he really at a "prospect" age anymore?
