any comments on him? The guy was a stud last year and I think he could turn things around in 05. The only thing you have to worry about is the health issue. If he is healthy, he is a horse.

And still a stupid a**. Who knows what to expect from a guy so stupid that he hits walls with his pitching hand.

As long as he is still with the Yankees next year I dont see any reason not to have him on your fantasy team.

Just a point of clarification - didn't he hit it with his non-pitching hand? I thinnk I remember some exchange like this:

Reporter: What made you hit the wall left-handed?

Personally Id rather have him outside of NY. But yeah, I think he should be pretty good this yr, and from where he is being ranked by a lot of places right now, he could be a great value pick.

My #1 concern - and I know this isnt PC, but its the state of the game and a reasonable fear - is the scenario that he could have been juicing a bit to recooperate and now that greater scrutiny exists he may once again be an injury risk. I know Im just speculating, and no there hasent been any rumors about it, Im just saying he kind of looks like a duck, sounds like a duck...

uActually rmors wrt Brown and roids are nothing new. Nothing proven, but if I had to place a bet, I would bet on the flaxseed oil.

What's with you and your weird obsession with flaxseed oil? I could probably find that phrase in about 1/2 of your posts. ;-)

I think you have to have him if he's healthy and playing for the yanks. He's proven himself over the years to be a good SP if he can control his temper.

In that scenario he could be a top 10 SP - he was one 2 yrs ago in LA after his rehab.

I still think he would be better for you fantasy wise if he moved back to the NL. Wins are great but he's a 15 game winner regardless of what team he's on. NY adds 5 wins but also a bump in %s.
