Yep, same as this guy. I don't know why everybody was so down on Gonzo in this year's drafts. I got him dirt cheap in all my leagues.

Incredibly, I grabbed him off of WW right after the season began. I hope he really is still in 02 and 03 form. Anytime a player his age has an injury-plagued season like 04 there is cause for concern. Though not WW concern ...

I grabbed Gonzalez in the 19th round in my 12 team league. ;-D
My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Gonzalez looks healthy and is off to a decent start but dont expect much more than .285 20-25HR and about 80RBI from him this year. I grabbed him after his 2 home run game and then traded him a few days ago.

Why shouldn't you expect much? Before the injury last year he was a .300 30 HR type of player. Sure he's getting up there in age but that lineup is a lot better this year than it has been in the past. I was expecting .300 with 27 HR's, and that's before his hot start. 30+ with .300+ is definately a reasonable expectation if he plays all year.

He's 38 just another reason I would sell high. 25 hr's should be a easy if he stays healthy.
