He just went 54th in my current draft, and i think he is a steal there. Good pick Mad, don't kick yourself. He had 3 huge years in the minors. He would have been up sooner, had Thome not been in his way. I think he has a good shot at 40 hrs 120 rbis, 35 110 at worst.
Just bumping an old thread for discussion!!!!
Now that Howard's got 47 dingers and 122 RBI, I'll agree with you Hootie that I got a steal. Honestly didn't expect him to go this crazy, but I'm very happy now for what I thought was a "reach" pick.
