I've gotta think right now Larry Walker is. He's really had a great stay in St. Louis so far, including running on the basepaths. Garret Anderson's power has dried up completely and he looks lackluster out there on the field.

I traded Kolb for GA a few days ago...my team desperately needs help in the Avg. category...so even if GA can't find his power stroke, as long as he keeps hitting for average I won't be too upset.

I am not sure what to think of his sudden loss of power, but after so many years of being good, I can't imagine him just suddenly being so weak. I don't buy into the arthritis thing too much, b/c he came back strong for a little while. The power was there at first, so it should come around again.

I would also go with Walker right now, especially in that lineup.

Man, I've gotta digress and go with Garrett Anderson. His consistency is something that's just so tempting to me.

I think Garrett's numbers in the other categories (especially RBI) will beat out Walker's.

Walker's career .279 clip away from home doesn't impress me all that much, either. The runs will come, though, batting ahead of Pujols, Rolen, and Edmonds.

There's no question in my mind that GA's dropoff in power is directly related to the arthritic condition he's been diagnosed with. I'd go with Walker, especially in that murderous lineup.

I asked about walker last week. Noone was really sold on him. I was. But didn't pull the trigger on him fast enough to get in on the 4 SB last week but here is the one game I played him in not including tonights 4 rbi's


L. Walker (StL - RF) 3 runs 2hits 0hr 2rbi 0 sb .500

I also have GA and played him in about 10 games..

Anderson (Ana - LF,CF,DH) 4runs 14hits 0hr 3rbi 0sb .292

NOT EVEN CLOSE. If Walker stays health (which is his only risk) I see 1997 again.

GA may turn it around but he sure hasn't yet. I go with Walker. His on a winning team that can MASH. Good players on great teams generally become better. Imagine how he feels. He was wanted, everybody hits on that team, and he's having fun. Thats the miracle youth tonic if I've ever seen one. Say hello to 1997 folks.
