Oh. :-[ Well that... that's different.

And thanks for saying "a couple people" instead of "that idiot hot4tx" and making me cry. !+) I'll try not drinking vodka on my way to work any more.

I sold high on him or tried to. I moved Granderson and Al Reyes for Vernon Wells. Thinking Wells was off to a mediocore start and this would be the best Granderson would be. Hoping Wells and Toronto turn it around. I now have an outfield of Crawford, Abreu, Wells, Francour, with Rowand and Cust on the bench. Need Abreu and Wells to be the stars that they are. I think he should be sold high.

I'm in first place in the two leagues I have Granderson and seventh in the league I don't have Granderson. Coincidence? I think not!

I've been playing the team that has him this week. Needless to say, I'm hurting.

I'm not sure if he's going to keep it up but in my main H2H league he's been real consistent week to week.

They way DET has been scoring runs I'm not complaining.

Week 1- 31

Week 2- 19

Week 3- 15

Week 4- 25

Week 5- 27

Week 6- 25

Week 7- 32

Week 8 (so far)- 18

As one who drafted him to play the lefty righty game with Bonds, I have created a #1 OFer. I'd like to thank GTWMA for alerting me to the viability of drafting Granderson for platooning purposes.

If he stays near his current pace

110+ Run
25+ HR
90+ RBI
20+ SB
~.285 AVG

Where do you see his keeper value in 14-team mixed league 5 x 5? And where should his trade value be today in redraft?

Tweak stats:

GPA .310, 23rd overall. (I had a 3.5 :-? )
P/PA 4.0, top 50.
LD% 21.5, top 40.
BABIP .344 (only a bit higher than last years .338)

Yeah, Granderson struggled a little more last year than I thought he would, but certainly seems to be putting things together. Now, if he can develop his skills against lefties, he could be a real monster. Looks like he might have a shot at the 20/20 I predicted last year.

Still, that reminds me, I owe a few bets from last year: ... 1&start=75
