Given the disdain shown by the gallery here, I smell profit.

If he'd qualified for the batting title, Anderson would have been 13th in OPS amongst A.L. outfielders, ahead of Bobby Abreu, Jose Guillen and Jermaine Dye and just barely behind Raul Ibanez. He's definitely not as good as people used to think he was, but he's certainly not a pumpkin like Erstad.

Way past his sell-by date; he's this year's Erstad, which means he'll be a) useless, b) overpriced and c) will play every day.

By rights, he should be either on the DL or the Halos' bench after the All-Star break, but won't be unless Arte Moreno finally sees the light. Expect 12 HRs, 80-plus ribbies, no steals and a .280 BA, and that's for a full season. Too bad the Angels don't have anybody to replace him.

Hope that 5-6 of your league-mates think like Toz does and snag Anderson for $8-10.

Is he hurt yet? Spring training is 3 days old.

I don't mean to say I expect 20 HR. 15 seems more likely.

I got him for $14 in Sportsline. His Pre All-Star numbers were dampened by a hip injury; he hit 13 HR after the All-Star break. I doubt that means he's going to hit 25-30 HR in his Age 36 year but, at that price, I'd be happy with 20.

$15-$19 for the last 4 years. 35 now with an injury bug. Me thinks, though, that I'll take side action that he gets 400 AB and earns $15-19.

Here's a guy who's power jumped incredibly from 2000-2003 then fell back to his previous level in 2004. If the jump and decline didn't exactly correspond with wide use of steroids and the installation of a testing we could chalk it up to the peak power years from 28-31 that many players experience. But, he didn't bell curve. He didn't bounce around near a peak. He went from one plateau to a wholly different world where he plateaued for four years. Then, he dropped back to the original established level in one fell swoop and maintained that level of performance for another three years.

I've owned Garret Anderson a few times. He's the kind of player who you feel like you paid too much for but, when you look at the Patton $ the next winter, you paid exactly the right amount.
