1) They walk him too much (he didn't break 100 rbi's last year)
2) Who does he have as protection this year? Why Edgardo Alfonzo, of course! (Means even more walks)
3) Some believe all the steroid speculation is either gonna affect his focus on the game or get him some suspension.
4) He's getting up there in age (only played in 130 games last year)
After summing up just these main points (leaving out minor points such as no more double-digit SB, probably no more 50-hr), you come out having guys like Beltran, Sheffield, Guerrero and Pujols pushing him beyond the first round.
I have him in the Sammy Sosa, Preston Wilson territory now but if you feel he's still first round material, consider yourself lucky that you can get him in the second round by now.
