As I noted, I do not know what he is going to do (no one does), but my gut is telling me this guy is going to put up pretty respectable numebrs this year. Just a feeling. The Phillies look like a new team with Bowa gone. Even Abreau has started to hit well and it is week2 not week 8. Hitting between Abreau and Thome in that park has got to be a plus.
As to a deal, since I tend to think he will continue to put up decent numbers, it would take quite a bit to pry him from me. A round 4-5 or better caliber SP or hitter with a solid track record. I can't see anyone doing that in their right mind.
In the auction league, is it a hard cap, or did the cap only apply at the draft? It matters because a hard cap retards trading of those cheap guys.
