What should we expect from him for next year? Can we expect another 100/20/90/15/.300 season? Is he worth a 9th or 10th round pick?

It's possible but I wouldn't say it's all that likely. I would expect many of those numbers to drop a bit in 2005, especially the RBI.
I'd be very pleased with 100/15/75/15/.290 I'd say 9th round is about where he'll go in many 12 team mixed leagues. He wouldn't be a great value, nor a bust at that position, IMO.

i don't see why he can't produce the same numbers as last year. he was very productive, and i think he's a top 100 pick easy.

Yeah I agree. I hope to get him at a good value pick.

I saw nothing last year that makes me think he won't repeat again this year. I've got him down for around 112/22/86/.294 (R/HR/RBI/AVG). Those may be a little ambitious -- especially RBI and HR -- but I don't see a huge fall off from him if he's healthy. ;-D

I don't see any indication of him slowing down. As a matter of fact he looked really good in the post season.

I think it's realistic he can give you the following:

115/16/80/25/.290 B-)

If this is what he produces, I think he's a really good value in the 9th, 10th round. :-b

I expect his numbers to drop a bit; here is my projection for 2005:

.290/.365/.440, 12-15 HR, 68 RBI, 100+ runs, 16-20 SB.


IMO 2004 was a career year for Damon, I doubt he will approach those numbers next season.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.
