89-23-99-12-.270

this puts him at #3 2B for me. he's above giles only b/c giles finds a way to miss games pretty well. the addition of beltre and sexson will help a lot in lifting other Ms' stats.

Tough call. Id say he continues his dropoff unless they allow steroids back into MLB. !+)

That lineup could be incredible, but what Ive read is that he will more than likely fall towards the 5-7th spot, so that wont help him too much. He's usually ranked right around 5th, and I think thats fair value - I personally dont like him and wouldnt take the risk, but Im not gonna tell others who draft him as the #5 2B that it was a bad pick or anything.

Watch him in ST. If he pulls a Jason Giambi, then you know what to do. ;-D

I originally thought the same thing - that he'd hit in the 2 spot. I cant remember who, but a M faithful set me straight with a link saying they would most likely have Winn hitting there.

He'll never have a season like he had a few years ago but .270 avg 25 hr 90rbi 10sb seem reasonable. Not too shabby for a 2B.

I'm waiting for spring training before I judge Boone. I know he fought through a bad back early last year, then had laser surgery right after the season to correct a vision problem. If he doesn't come out raking in ST, though, I'm gonna have to bump him down some.

Possible range:
.258 74 24 86 7
up to
.295 91 33 104 12

Right now, it's anyone's guess (and will depend a lot on how the team bounces back with the new offensive configuration).
