Any predictions on him for this year? He's on Texas's offense, and anybody on their team can have a breakout year. Richard is 29 year's old so he's still in his prime I guess. I would say...

Avg- .275
Runs-70
Homeruns-30
RBI's-90
SB-5

Respectable? :-?

Looks good - my guess is:

Downside: .275, 68, 22, 87, 4
Upside: .290, 85, 34, 103, 9

Probably somewhere in the middle.

I'm pretty much agree with Scurvy except I think the downside includes a much lower BA. :-/

I'm confident he finishes closer to his upside than his downside.

He's a very solid value pick this season.

I'd expect him to hit at 5, behind Tex and ahead of Mench.

Young
Blalock
Soriano
Tex
Hidalgo
Mench
Barajas
Nix

Hmm. Thats a solid spot for him. Im really starting to like him as a late round Bench/Utility guy for my squad.

This is the guy that one year in Houston hit 44 HR's, 122 RBI's, 118 Runs and had a.314 avg.

Not saying that he goes close to those numbers but in that ballpark, playing every day, he should do much better in comparison to where he'll be drafted.

He is one of my definite sleeper type guys for 2005.

I absolutely agree. He's definitely one of the "sleepers" I'm targeting in my drafts but if things go wrong with Hidalgo they go horribly wrong. :-)

Yea, I know he is extremely streaky. What round should this guy be drafted in? In say a standard 12 team league?
