Having a very nice season. Is there a more confounding talent in all of baseball?

Agree with Alex. If you're going in with the best value by a solid margin, put your money into surer things. No need to take risks. Buy the quality and lock in the advantage.

If Slyke is the front runner, I have to think he has no interest in Alex Rios and even less in Adam Dunn.

@Slyke: he will not be available to you or anyone else at a discounted rate.

Note to all...Slyke is the perceived front runner in our AL this year. He is just starting to feel the target sitting on his back :)

I have his IF popup rate at 13% from 7.7%. Also a .578 OPS vs. righties. He may well be a good buy but there is cause for caution.

Strangely, he had pretty much the same G/L/F numbers as he had in 2010 (45/17/38). It's as if he was a little bit weaker, a little bit slower, otherwise the same Alex Rios.

If you're in risk-taking mode -- even if you're in rebuilding mode, because he'll still be in what's meant to be his prime a year from now -- he's someone to target, for sure.

I also agree. Excellent buy.

I agree with the first part of the analysis. Despite the lousy OPSs, Rios's HR/SB combination have historically made him a better fantasy play than a real life play. The problem I have is that May 2009 and 2010 look like the anomalies, and if not for those two hot months Rios' numbers would look even worse. The SB also fell off the cliff last year, and I'm not sure the speed is coming all that way back. This is definitely a risk/reward pick. Don't let the Slykes of your league get Rios too cheap, but don't go chasing either.

Boy, I like a lot of White Sox players to rebound this year, and Rios is at the top of my list with Dunn. His detractors always point to his OPS the last few years, but despite the sub-.800 OPS's he had always been a solid fantasy earner. Sure, he is on the wrong side of 30 now, but last year seems to be the anomaly. He put so many balls in play last year, and put up a BABIP 70 points lower than his career average. A guy I still have faith in and hoping he will be available at a discounted rate.
