I think his numbers will definitely regress.

2008: 92Runs 29HRs 95RBIs .277AVG

This year, I'm thinking something along the lines of:

2009: 70Runs 22HRs 77RBIs .281AVG

same here, though I think his rbi's and runs will be a little higher, with a slightly lower BA.

PS: I think he gets traded.

If so, do you have an idea to whom?

+ or - for projections?

Putting a gun to my head I'll say San Fran as I think they're going to be better than people think but that might effect his numbers. The Orioles may also be a player since they have no real 3B prospect behind 37 year old Mora. I'll say 24HR, 88 RBI, .285 Avg, 72 R, 3 SBs.

I could see him repeating last years numbers. In his last full season, 2005 for the Rays no less, he had 28HR 117RBI and .286AVG.

I have faith in Cantu also and think he's an absolute steal going 4 or 5 rounds after Garret Atkins.

I think people forget how bad he was the last few years. There is a chance that he can repeat 08 but I would certainly not pay for him to find out this year.

I'm pretty confident he'll hit between .220 and .300 with between 15 and 35 HR and get between 50 and 100 or so R and RBI.

He isn't really projectable imo, just gotta decide where you are willing to draft upside and not worry anymore about the risk.
