i really, really hope so, if not better than uggla's crappy second half numbers. for the sake of my poor draft, i also have guys like kendrick, delmon young, rios, and broxton filling some critical positions, hoping they TOO can fill their respective potentials.
for gordon, assuming he's the opening day 3rd basemen (i read that somewhere... really hope it's true), hitting 2-4 in the lineup (also read that somewhere here), i see...
.285/25HR/85RBI/80R/10SB, and that's not nearly as much of a reach as i've seen some guys reaching on his speed and dependency of his protection in the lineup.
"I dont know who the Royals will have in centerfield now that Estebean German took one in the mouth on a fly ball. Probably Kerry Robinson which means that the Royals start with one out every 3 innings."
