Another player where the panel pretty much nailed it. CBS pushed him ($28), where LABR and Tout were demanding par ($22) and nearly got it.

Two homers today. Mark-kick-ass!

Don't even have to worry about it; I would cheerfully pay into the low 20s, but that'll never get him.

He's not going for Alex's price. If you want him, you're going to probably have to pay at least $23, and you're going to have to pay Mike's price in some leagues.

The RBI problem last year was due to Roberts' absence and an incredibly weak lineup. I'm not going to argue that he's going to grow into a power hitter, but he's shown he has 20 homer power with a decent BA. The more his price falls the more I want him, again, though he crushed me last year.

Protection has essentially been disproven if you mean his slash statistics. If you mean his reduced RBI and Runs, then yes, although 2009 was very strong in both. Bearn in mind his BAvg has hardly varied. His OBP has bounced around, but last year was his second best year. It's his power that's been in a slow slide then entire time, although the doubles increased in 2008 actually boosting the SLG even though the HR decreased.

He's not a big guy. He's very lean and I'd say that the 6'2" 195 is a bit overstating his case. He looks more like 6' 180 in person. He's very smooth in his movements.

As someone who has watched almost every game of his career, I don't think anything has happened other than random variation with a player who started his career pretty much at a plateau level of performance. Not all players improve as they age through age 27-29. Some hit the league at their level and then just maintain it for years with a random spike or dip once or twice a career. The younger the player as a regular, usually the more likely he plateaus earlier in his career. Markakis just might be that.

But, because HR power increases age 29-31 even though overall production may slip, there's still a chance that he will hit the HR that everyone covets.

as an owner who watched him a lot least year, the loss of Brian Roberts killed him - many of his hits were wasted with nobody on base. Yes, his HRs were down (he saved himself late with a power surge) but the hits (and doubles) were still there - but hard to have that line with only 60 RBI.

Anyone close to the O's that knows why the downturn in this player? No protection?
