good mid-late round pick?
he qualifies at 1B and OF right?
half way through draft and he hasn't been picked yet...

oh, only 1B?
I have D. Lee there.
I guess he's not worth a Util or Bench spot then, as I only have one of each...

I would take him for a ut spot. He will hit 30 hr's and drive in close to 100 runs. Good mid round pickup if you can deal with the Avg.

I agree with KentX12, he will be good for 30 HRs and 100 RBIs, and worth a UT spot (my league uses DH, not UT, but it's the same thing. We feel UT is degrading).
Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire's eye or on the ball. ~Jim Murray

OF? 8-o I don't think so.

1B and either Utility or DH, whatever you guys use.

I would take him in the late rounds as a DH or utility guy. He showed everyone last year that he still has some power left. Its hard for me to get that 3-4 week streak where he was hitting homeruns left and right last year out of my mind. He is a good pickup

thomas has batted over .300 ten seasons in his career. he could do it again. he raised it back to .270 last year.

i wouldn't count on it...but it's possible...add that to the 30 hr's and 100 rbis and it's a chance worth taking IMO
