The word on Guillen is that he went back home country (Venezuela) and played winter ball. He went back there to work on his swing simply to get better so that he could be a starter on a MLB club this season.
He has been rejuvenated and now I think what he is doing this year is legit. I think he is this seasons Junior Spivey but with some power. I think he will keep it up, because he is hungry and out to prove that he should be an everyday player.
I had him earlier in the season, up until Griffey came back and let him go, but it looks like I need to go and get him back because he is making hard for Boone(his manager) to keep him on the bench.
Guillen is still young too, 27 I believe which is the typical age when a player either breaks out or goes bust.
With continued playing time and staying healthy, here are the #'s that I think he will put up this year.
.290-300/25/80-90 rbi with about 10 stolen bases.
He is the real deal right now and if you can get him, get him.
The BIG RED Machine will rise again.
