My guess is Wlad hits .250, 20+ HRs. Will strike out a lot. Unless the M's do the sentimental thing, and trade for Griffey, he should be in the OF all season.

Yo, Dan, Toshiro's been waiting to hear about Wladimir Balentien. With that big swing of his, is he going to cut it?

We're still trying to figure out why the M's singed him. He's Willie Bloomquist, only older and not as good.

Great line by the TV guy in the game this afternoon: "Cairo, when he first came up, used to split his hands a few inches. Remember that? It was like a Ken Burns documentary."

Cairo's most useful in leagues without reserve lists or farm systems only. The play is either to buy him at $1, hope he steals enough bases to help you (with getting too many AB to hurt you), or FAAB him later in the year for $1 for the same reason. In leagues with shallow or moderate reserve lists, you're better off rolling the dice on a young kid. Guys like Cairo will always be waiting for you in the free agent pool later on, and there's no way to predict when Cairo will go nuts and steal 3 bases in a week, like he did once last year.

Some leagues are very strict about position eligibility. Twenty games, no ifs, ands or buts. Some leagues, however, that have 20-game minimums allow the middle infield and corner slots to be filled by players that have a combined 20 games at second and short or first and third. Which makes a player like Cairo just a wee bit more valuable (though still not as valuable as he is in real life).
