I dont know if I would call them flukes exactly. I would prefer to call a spade a spade and say he posted those kind of numbers because he was juiced up. Its a shame for Bret that MLB is cracking down on that sort of thing. ;-7

Most of fantasy baseball is on offense and Walker is an offensive oreiented player (he's never done that hot at 2nd) so I think most of you are undervaluing him.

I think he deserves the starting nod whereever he ends up.

I thought the same thing last year. I'm reserving my judgement until he actually signs somewhere.

I'd like to hear the group's thoughts on Casey Blake and where he'd fit in as a 2b. If the Tribe doesn't keep Belliard, I would think Blake would get the majority of the PT, right (as opposed to Phillips)?

If Blake plays 2B, he'd be ranked near the top of my list. I have him at:

.281, 26 HR, 96 R, 93 RBI. That's for 150 GP. That's pretty good for a relatively unknown player.

I've got him projected for 87/27/89/.276 which would put him just in the top 10 or so for 5x5. I'm not sure how accurate those projections are -- looking back they may be a little high.

Walker is a free agent. I would wait until he signs before giving him the starting job. :-D


They declined Grudzielanek's option, so I am pretty sure they are going to try and sign him. If they dont then I have him ranked to high probably.


The Cubs are probably going to sign Womack. Walker could end up as the DH in Texas which is obviously a good thing for his fantasy value as long as he plays everyday. This will be his 6th team in the past 5 years so he can't be that good... but again, it could be his defense that makes him undesirable to everybody, which is a good reason for Texas to DH him. They'd probably be better off DHing Soriano and putting Walker at 2B though.

I highly doubt Todd Walker is going to be a full time DH on any team....especially not a team as loaded with talent as the Rangers.
