What kind of season can we expect out of him? Will he bounce back? Is he healthy? What are some projections?

I know this isn't the trade forum, but I'm mulling over a deal that would include me parting with Konerko and gaining Anderson. I could use a LF, and I understand that's where he'll be playing next season.

So what say ye, Cafe? What can we expect out of Mr. Anderson?

I think Anderson's body is beginning to pull a Chipper Jones on him. he has been consistent over the years, but little injuries are taking a toll. His strength had always been a ton of swings and a .300ish avg, high 20 HR's 110 RBI's. Now, you're looking at a gradual decline. I would say .290 21 HR 90 RBI. Not bad, but I would keep Konerko and try to find another LF.

yeah, anderson is one of the most consistent hitters in baseball, i mean, consistent good hitter, cuz there are a lot of consistent bad hitters, those who hit 3 HRs every season :-b

but somehow what happened to him this season really worries me, just like giambi.

LMAO, you nevel fail for an out-of-the-blue comment :-b

As for GA - here's what I have for him:

.309, 27 HR, 116 RBI, 84 R, 4 SB. That's in 155 GP... so if by chance he makes the whole season add a few to each category.

:-D

those are the numbers i'd expect from him if he didn't have...whatever he had, arthritis? if it's arthritis, he prolly still has it, right? i dunno, i just can't trust him enough to draft him where he'll prolly be drafted...

Yikes, I'm really underselling him then. I usually play it safe when projecting guys with injuries that keep them out for as long as Anderson. Anyway I've got:

81/27/98/.309 -- R/HR/RBI/AVG

Before we bury this guy, he did hit .300 last year as always, which was about .60 better than Chipper Jones, whose decline is supposedly comparable. Moreover, he slugged an HR once every 30 ABs in August and Sept after he was recovered from his injury, which compares favorably to his career average of a HR once every 28 ABs. This guy is not Tim Salmon--given his consistent history, I am suprised that so many people on this board (in this and other threads) want to put him out to pasture on such slim evidence of a decline.
