I haven't heard any news on him. Is he healthy? I see him batting in the 5 hole in all the proj. lineups. Why is he being drafted after the 20th round in most of the mocks I see? Am I missing something?

Check out Holliday's splits. He is super human hitting at Coors and rather puny on the road, I believe. I think that he also predominates against either righties or lefties--not sure which. He's a good pick for a 4th or 5th platoon outfielder.

He can be huge if you have backups in a h2h league. Start him when they are home and bench him when he goes on the road. Don't forget he was a rookie last year..

Most experts are pretty up on this guy and I tend to agree. Anyone with power and half the games in Coors is worth a flier on. Not a bad idea to bench him on the road, either. As for injuries, I'm pretty sure he's 100%. He needs to hit lefties better (.237), but since he's a righty that has a good chance to get better.
Can't worry about tomorrow's pain tonight.

I like Holliday a lot this year as a late round pick. With the Coors' factor and the young potential he has he makes a great backup outfielder.

I drafted him, he had a nice rookie year last year and I'll take a chance on any guy playing for the Rockies.

Agreed. He's a solid platoon player to have if you'd rather focus on other positions in the draft and leave an outfield spot open.
