Yeah, I thought Carlos Lee would be the popular choice.

I knew Wilkerson would be a consistent #3 choice too. He is really underrated. The Cafe never likes guys who struggle hitting for average.

Points League owners :-b .

Actually, I like how the Cafe is so disenchanted with low average hitters. Able to get Miguel Cabrera, Brad Wilkerson, Royce Clayton, Terrance Long and Todd Greene for dirt cheap prices in our Cafe NL-only league, my team has been successful for most of the season.

I have Wilkerson on my team in a 6x6 league (count BB's)

He is widely underrated...

Wilkerson has as many BB's as Jim Thome, and is going to hit 25 HRs with like 12 SBs thrown in for good measure...

He is a back-up on my team, and really helps that he can fill in at 1B, OF and CI ;-D
Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

I've used Wilkerson in all of my leagues from time to time this season but he remains on only one of my rosters. I've used him because I love lead off hitters at the best of times and speed and power is a rare commodity.

The reason I have him ranked well below Carlos Lee and Baldelli is his terrible average. He just hurts you too much in that category to ever be called under rated but I do admit as I've already said, he is worth picking up for spot starts from time to time to assist your power numbers and steals.
