I think he will level off, but not totally suck. I wouldnt sell high quite yet, let the D-Train keep running for now.

It's interesting how little hype there was on him this offseason. Usually us fantasy geeks salivate over sophomore slump bounceback players.

I think part of it is that leg kick. People see it as a gimmick and don't realize there's more going on there talent-wise than a leg kick. He may very well tire again this season, but also factor in that it appears he's learning how to pitch and not just relying on his natural physical talents.

That being said I tried to trade him in a deal where I got Tejada or David Ortiz :-B Not surprisingly, it didn't work out.

I was just offered Carlos Beltran for Dontrelle Willis...

Is it just me, or would that be selling him really, really high? :-?
