Such a shame he's not batting third and playing center field for the Blue Jays this year (with Wells in left). If you're a Blue Jays fan.

I needed speed for my keeper team and took Rios over Heyward which I regretted deeply, but I can't complain at all at this point (not until next year at least.) Career year in the making

Nice start to the year--power spike is probably a bit high, but otherwise very much in line with '08 and '07.

There are, of course, guys who fall apart and don't come back. I'm with EugeneFreed on the clubhouse in Toronto, though Alex didn't bounce back after suffering the ignominy of inseason waivers. And I have to make a confession: In a 10 team 5x5 AL auction on Wednesday night, Rios was the first player tossed out. The bidding quickly got to $17, and then it died. Going once, going twice, going three times. I realized that the auctioneer was giving us another beat to bid, and I shut up until he said Gone.

The first person auctioned is always cheap, is part of the explanation, but the other part is that his decline is a mystery. We don't know why it came, and that's scary. Still, I'm bidding (a revised $20 for him in the ADL draft) and I'll let you know if that's enough.

It appears that 2007's power was an aberration. It's somewhat disturbing that he is trending down. I would pay for a split between 08-09, which still makes him a solid OF.

Laziness is usually a post hoc rationalization attributed to players who have a bad relationship with the media or their GM/Manager.

Remember how lazy Adam Dunn was in Cincy? Apparently he's no longer lazy in DC. Everyone loves him.

Do the Chone projections account for laziness, whining or lack of hustle?

When someone's BABIP drops, it isn't always bad luck.

I'll look for a sleeper elsewhere.

I'm afeared that at this price ($24) I'll end up with Alex (isn't that how he's going these days?).

When I'm looking at the numbers I think $24 is a fair bet, and I'm hoping that everyone else's pessimism means there is a better buying opportunity.

I'm not going more than $24, and I'm hoping for less, but it's hard to ignore history.

Worth a gamble? Heck yes when my bidding wall will be $12 in a deep mixed league. Why? #5 batting order; advantageous home park; Hard Hit Balls in 09 should have resulted in more dingers; and Chone predicts 24SB, 19HR, 78RBI, 83R, and .278avg.
