I don't know about MVP - but he's certainly worth picking up off of the wire if he's still there for some reason.

He wasn't even drafted in our league. I don't particularly need him (Bay, Craw, Beltran, Young and Rios in OF), but I couldn't let him sit on the ww.

He is hitting so well right now, and I only have him in one league :,-(

I traded for him 2 years ago in my keeper league, knowing he would get better after the surgeries. I drafted him in almost all of my leagues. Which is probably not fais, considering I've watched his progress up close. He always could hit. The question was whether or not he could run. I figured if he couldn't run, he end up as an DH. Aside from errors, he can't hurt your fantasy team defensively, and there really isn't anyone better offensively.

Wait, are we seriously saying that Barry Bonds went undrafted or was dropped in some leagues? What, are people stupid? What kind of league doesn't draft the best hitter in a generation? Decline or no, he's still an excellent hitter....

Like him? Hate him? How is that relevant to your fantasy lineup? You’re playing a numbers game, not a popularity game. You make the best lineup you can from your draft and the available WW players. If he’s available then you grab him and plug him in on the appropriate days. Or you can let your opponents get him. It’s up to you.

I’d take him, that’s for sure.

I cant stand him and hope he never gets another hit in his life, that being said I have him in 1 league and start him every game he plays. There is no reason he shouldnt be in a fantasy lineup now that it looks like he is juicing again. "if he ever stopped"
