Apparently, baseball players are so super-human, they never get sick unless they're coming off the juice. :-b

I'm a huge Mags fan so it sucks to say it but it could be, I still think alot of these cats are off the juice = low homer totals (Thome, Helton, Manny) i may be wrong , but i may be right, Maybe kids like Guillen & Roberts are on juice or maybe they never were so no dropoff.

back to Mags it is very similar to Giambi, we wil have to wait & see , im thinking of trying to buy low

Why are you shocked Guillen is hitting home runs? He hit like 30 last year...

What type of numbers are you expecting from Magglio so that you need to buy low? There's going to be a ton of MLB OF's that will outproduce, so sure if you need a guy who might hit above .300 with all those injuries and 25 HRs go for it.

I think Magglio's being overrated and there's tons of players out there who are going to give you similar numbers to a Detroit OF who might play 140 games.

I suppose his value has sunk like a stone after leaving Chicago and dealing with all the injuries, though. At best I'd think he'd be good for 30 - 300 over a full healthy season in Comerica. With the health issues... he's a #3 OFer. I guess he'd be a good buy-low candidate if his owners would take some peanuts for him.

OK just checked the Cafe Challenge and Big L took him in the 8th round... too pricey for me.


Got him for Burrell in one (respecatable) league

Sorry guys, I stayed away for this very reason. :-/
I wouldnt want him simply because he won't stay healthy.
