I fully expect magglio to put up
am i crazy, u might think i am, but imo mags will be just fine, and you can all pass him up in the draft, I will gladly steal him in the 3rd round
you see this is why i win my leages every year.......you people's reluctance to take guys who were hurt the year before.
you guys go ahead and take all the super studs from 2004...........who will NOT repeat in 2005 and I will take the guys like Mags, Mussina, Prior, Wood, Halladay, Nomar ETC.....cuz they are superstars who were hurt last season and are looking to bouncer back to their normal form in 2005
You can't think hes going to hit as many HR leaving one of the best HR parks in the country? He should have somewhere between 25-30. More than likely runs and RBIs could be down also, due to the switch in park. And thats even if he plays the whole season. You take Mags in the third round, you just got suckered because you could have had him 3 or 4 rounds later, and instead of getting a guy whose been a good performer the past few years you pick a guy you could have gotten much later who is a huge risk. What if he does screw up the knee? 3rd round pick right down the tubes. What should have been a 6th or 7th round pick.
sigh, that is such an overrated stat. He leaving camerica for detroit so his homers are going to go way down???? only 1HR in 135 ab's therE???
You realise how stupid that stat is? Gary Sheffield left Atlanta for New York last season and every1 said his homers would go down, tthey didnt
I say this EVERY YEAR on this site. JUSt because a guy leaves his team for a new team and the new park is bigger then the old one, DOES NOT MEAN he is going to hit way less home runs, so stupid. Do you not understand? that players hit home runs NOT because they play in a small park (this exludes colorado obviously) but the hit the HR's BECAUSE THEY HAVE SOMETHING CALLED TALENT??
ok so i will say it again, mags is not going to be around in the 6-8 round. your nuts.
if you pass on him after the third round, and let some one else grab him (me) your going to be greatly sorry.
I love this every year, the guy who tells me im a sucker for taking some1 who had an injury filled year the year before, then they have great seasons.
I picked Randy Johnson last season in the 2nd round
I pikced Vlad in the top 5 last season
this year is no diffrent. and you stat of his 1hr in 135 ab's in det is pretty dumb imo. the park in detroit is no petco or safeco, it is more of a neutral park.
a healthy mags will put up his usual
count on it.
