I like Aramis. Last year, he had that incident with Sheets where he injured his ankle and he was hobbled for most of the year. He had a good September once it started to heal and I wouldn't be surprised to see him around .280/30/90/80 for the season.

Burroughs, will he even be a regular in SD this year? I haven't heard. Even so, at best, I think he will hit for average with a 10-15 HRs.. probably a year or so away at this point.

Javier is a mystery to me. He looks like he is going to be one of the top pitchers in the league coming into 2002 but, then just stinks up the place in the second half other than September. I'd still want him on my team but, I would hesitate to pay top $ for him like some of the other pitchers. Plus, if you are NL only, who knows if Javier will be in the NL the entire year.. kind of makes you hold back on Montreal players...

Burnett is the man, and should be really good figure 16 wins, which is good for someone on the marlins. Vernon wells started to show his skills i see some good stuff from him like 25 home runs and about 80 or 90 rbis. Everyone is high on wolf because he had a great 2nd half, so did Trachsel. I need to see one more full season before I'm high on him. Choi is untested so who knows, Vasquez and Ramirez should bounce back this year. Burroughs and Blalock have some work to do.

What was the deal with Burnett's arm troubles late last season?? Anything to worry about?

How about Vernon Wells

does he have 30-30 potential?

and Austin Kearns, i think he could go 30-.320-120RBI eventually.

Vernon Wells - will be a good hitter, not a great one
Javier Vazquez - has been hyped the last three years and its starting to look like he'll never live up to it
Randy Wolf - up and down, if he can put it all together will be pretty good
Aj Burnett - arm troubles in his future
Aramis Ramirez - hopefully last year was an abberation, I'd love to see him back at .300-30-100
Sean Burroughs - overrated since the little league world series
HanK Blalock - needs at least one more year before becoming a good major league player
Hee Soip Choi - wild card...will he get the at bats for the Cubs?...reminds me of Durazo a few years ago.
Austin Kearns - could be a young Bernie Williams

I think Ramirez will bounce back from his injury and post some decent numbers. I like Wolf and think he's finally settled into his rotation spot. Vazquez is a question mark as well as Burnett. I like Burroughs and Blalock, but they both need more time. Wells I need to see more of him.
