it's too tough IMO. tons of people thouight his power would dive in RFK (as did I). After seeing him in-person a number of times this year, the far fences don't mean much when you are clearing them by a decent margin.
I traded chad tracey, manny and some other superflous piece for him in a keeper. OF or not, even if he is say 32-22, I'm digging. I don't know if its first-round value, as people value the steals vs. avg differently, but I'm not ocmplaining. Its not as if so many OFs are ahead of him anyway. I'm digging.
Who the heck knows? I'll take him though. I mean Beltran's value isn;t going to suffer THAT much because he is OF. And my gut feeling this year is that OF was thinner than usual. I played in a 10 team keeper with 4of, MI, CI, IF and Utility, and it seemed thin as all heck.
