Vernon Wells: I love this guy, and it's hard to imagine, taking '03 into account, that he'll do as poorly as last year. Still, keep in mind that he's a very aggressive hitter, meaning that there's a good chance that he needs good pitches in order to succeed. In '03, he was hitting in front of Delgado, who was having an amazing year, so I'm sure he saw great pitches. Last year, with Delgado injured much of the year, Wells wasn't spectacular even when healthy. So assuming Delgado doesn't end up on the Jays, Wells will be all by himself, and I think he'll have a much tougher time. On the other hand, even before he was hitting in front of Delgado, he was considered a good prospect...so basically, I'm torn, but all I'm saying is to take into account the fact that he'll probably be hurt by Delgado's absence.
Garrett Anderson: If his injuries settle down a bit, he could have a good year in a great lineup. Of course, that's a big "if."
Troy Glaus: He's hitting in a ballpark where it's fairly easy to hit homeruns, meaning that he's a 40+ HR guy if he's healthy. Of course, he's also a .250 guy, which I personally don't like to have on my team, but depending on the rest of your lineup, he could be a good later-round pick. If I remember correctly, his contract with Arizona didn't include any specific stipulations or incentives about his health (I may be wrong about this, but this is what I remember), which means one of two things: either Arizona was so desperate and had so little to offer to Glaus that they were forced to guarantee both huge money and the absence of a specific health-based stipulation, OR they concluded that he was healed enough that it wasn't an issue. Although I think Arizona's signings haven't been very smart, I don't think they're THAT stupid, which means there's a good chance he's healed.[/b]
