Well nevermind my request... just read about Guillen being carted of the field lastnight. So... Gonzalez or Grissom? :-B

Guillen is best of that list and he may play this week so the injury isn't as bad as it sounded. Juan Gone is not himself, has been moved down to 6th in the order, isn't playing every day and they moved the fences back in KC's stadium which is robbing a few HR's. I released him for Gerut in my league today, thats how much faith I have in Juan Gone.

Hey man, I am a big Juan Gone fan, but Id have to say that this year, I like Grissom. red hot. Yes, he and Bonds are the only two who know how to hit on the Giants, but he is hitting like .340 with 20 RBI. go with Grissom.

What's with the hating on Juan Gone? He's got the potential to go 35-110 this year if he stays healthy. He's not playing bad right now at all. I'd rank him about a little lower than Guillen but higher than Grissom. If there was a guarentee he wouldn't get hurt then he's easily number 1 on that list to me.

I think you answered your own question... Juan has always been far from a sure thing to play. In what is it...? In around 14 years he's been close to a full season once or twice? I agree with you that he should be up there if he wasn't an injury risk. But he is a big time risk, and I don't see why that shouldn't be factored into ranking him lower because of it.
