I'm thinking .260-.270 with about 10 HR's. I agree that you'll have to wait 2-3 years for him to be the offensive player you like to keep in a keeper league.

In a keeper league, he'll be worth grabbing in later rounds (or earlier if you are in a rebuilding mode). In a non-keeper - stay away. I'd be shocked to see .270-.280 with 10 HRs. More like .220 and 5 - and a few trips back down to the minors - as he adjusts to the majors. A better C option for next year is LeCroy. Mmmm, LeCroy. :-D

I got burned with the Miguel Olivo (CWS) hype last year. I'll probably get a veteran in our draft.

Don't have roster room for 2 Catchers.

Prior didn't win it. He never spent enough time in minors, because he had 4 years of college.

It was Beckett who won, not Prior. :-)
