what projections do we have for him this season? 2 years ago he went 15 hr/7 sb's. Last year he went 9 hr/ 20 sb's. Can he put together a 15/15 season??

Absolutely. He rebounded nicely in the 2nd half, with 7 HR, 11SB, 31 R and 36 RBI with a nice .280 AVG. Still only 31 and plays in a hitter's park in a good lineup, I'm definitely expecting a good season.

I think Alexi is going late in drafts, which is good if you're interested in him. For example, Aybar went at 109 overall and Alexi 215 in the "Drafting with the Stars" article on this site (Drew Silva). I might agree with putting Aybar slightly ahead of Alexi, but not by 106 picks. Yeah, Aybar is supposed to bat 2nd, but Fergosi likes to tinker, so I wouldn't place that much faith in Aybar staying there all year. To me, Alexi is a very safe pick, and a great bargain at a # like 215. He has more potential than Aybar as an "all-around" player, averaging 74 runs, 71 ribbies, 14 bombs, and 13 steals the last 3 years, to go along with a lifetime .276 average. In my AL-only league, I have Alexi 45 overall and Aybar 54.

Fregosi hasn't managed the Angels in 30 years. But, your right Scosiapath does love to tinker

Things more entertaining than owning Alexei:

* Watching the crappy real housewives shows my wive currently has on the TV
* Watching paint dry
* Anything

If you like boring players who do a little bit of everything, but a lot of nothing, this is your guy. He will be buried in the bottom of the lineup, he will swing at everything (16 BB's all year LOL), and have 1-2 short hot streaks during a season to make you think he is elite, only to go back to being crap. I would rather have many other SS's over unsexy Alexei. I'd much rather have Anderlton Simmons, Josh Rutledge, Jed Lowrie, Zack Cozart, Juan Segura etc. Alexei, to put it lightly, sucks.

Scosiapath - that's a good one. Guess I really gave my age away with the Fergosi mix-up.

CMil, what's so good about Lowrie? In the AL, only A-Cab and Andrus, and MAYBE Aybar are ahead of Alexi.

Aybar is light years ahead of Alexei. He is going to hit 2nd in the Angels lineup behind Trout and in front of Pujols and Hamilton. Alexei is going to hit 7th or 8th and be surrounded by far worse hitters (Vicideo and his 14 BB's will be hitting in front of him). He had 59 runs last year and played a full season. That is what happens when you get stuffed into a bad spot in the lineup, your counting stats suffer. Lowrie is projected to hit 2nd in the A's lineup. His OBP was 90 points higher than his average last year. He will probably draw more walks by Memorial Day than Alexei will all season.

AL SS rankings:

1. Reyes
2. Cabrera
3. Andrus
4. Aybar
5. Hardy
6. Alcides Escobar
7. Jed Lowrie
8. Derek Jeter
9. Alexei Ramirez

Reyes leadoff in potent Toronto lineup, Cabrera 2nd in Indians lineup, Andrus 2nd in Texas lineup, Hardy 6th in Orioles lineup (2nd after Roberts gets hurt in the 2nd game), Escobar 2nd in the Royals lineup, Lowrie 2nd in the A's lineup, Jeter leadoff in the Yankees lineup, Alexei 7th or 8th in White Sox lineup. I would much rather have guys in positions to have much higher counting stats. With Alexei's .287 OBP and inability to draw walks it makes his run totals suffer when he gets stuffed into the bottom half of the lineup. He does not have any chance of moving up either unless someone gets hurt. It seasons past when he gets hot they have moved him to the 2 hole, they have Keppinger and his professional approach at the plate entrenched into that spot all season, barring injury. AL SS has some sleepers in it with guys hitting in key spots in lineups.

back in 2nd spot. He had a good game yesterday and seems to play better when there's no pressure on him. Still a good thing for his fantasy value

His SBs and AVG have helped my team a lot in MI, I wish he'd re-gain some pop, but if he steals 30+ w/ a decent AVG, I'm happy to keep him.

He's doing what people expected from Andrus and Escobar. Two players who got drafted higher than him. Hopefully he'll show a bit more pop in the second half.

He just got thrown out attempting another one. Seems like he has the green light at all times.

I think I would rather have him over both of them, which I would have never said in the pre-season. In fact, I would have scoffed at anyone who said so.
