  • Is Chris Shelton for real?

    Man, I am so glad I drafted this guy. 5 HR's all ready and just one K all year?
    It goes without saying, but that's an incredible start.

    Anyone care to predict how he'll finish this year?

    .324/ 37 HR/ 101 RBI
    WAR? Prove it!

    He's obviously starting out on a tear. But yeah, he's for real.

        I'll one up you guys- 2006 MVP finalist, no lower than third place and probably winning it if the Tigers make the playoffs this year.

              Haven't we seen this before, only with a speedy second baseman with good gap power?

                  I think Shelton will hang around .300 but not hit as many homers as you guys feel he will. I'll be happy if he gets a lot of ribbies though with those hits.

                    Kansas City is nothing but Texas is an actual contender. Beating them twice and leading them at the moment(8:50pm EDT) is a big feat.

                        Can it really get any more exciting? I mean, come on! The guy starts out with 5 homers over four games, and he's the talk of the baseball nation. What does he go out and do? Hit two more homers? Nah, too easy. How 'bout a couple triples? Craziness, I tell ya. Either the apocolypse is near, or some odd Donald-induced curse has just gone belly-up.

                          Detroit hasn't had a guy who has been so well talked about in baseball circles in well over a decade- not since Cecil Fielder.

                          I think he is going to be the guy that elevates the team above mediocracy and into greatness. Just watch.
