His strength had always been a ton of swings and a .300ish avg, high 20 HR's 110 RBI's. Now, you're looking at a gradual decline. I would say .290 21 HR 90 RBI. Not bad, but I would keep Konerko and try to find another LF.

This is pretty much dead-on with my projection for GA next season. I don't expect him to play a full season, so I have a lower RBI total.....the power is still there, as is the ability to hit for average, it's just a matter of staying healthy for the full, which I don't think he will be able to do. I'm expecting less than 500 AB in 2005.

Took the words right out of my mouth. ;-D

I dont buy into that. I wouldnt mind having him on any team I have. I believe he will be fine and can see him as a good 2nd to 3rd outfielder.

I've always been a big fan of GA. I've had him on my team for three years straight. That said, I didn't keep him this year because I'm concerned. I'm not concerned about his BA. He'll hit .300+ because he's a great hitter. I'm concerned that this "injury" has sapped his power.

If I can get him as a fourth outfielder, I take him in a heartbeat. Otherwise, I will be passing on him next year.

I, too would be concerned about his power loss. :-[

But even with that, I think he falls from maybe a #2 outfielder on a team to #3 (solid #3) :*)

i'd say he'll get back to close to what he used to do. .300-28-100

is not out of the question

I like GA..however, I'd take Konerko who seems to be on the up and up ... he might be juiced though who knows?
