2008-05-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)How far has Khalil Greene's stock fallen? Do you see him picking his game back up?
(Matt from San Fran)
It seemed like he made a conscious effort to trade contact for power last year. It worked in 2007--he had basically the same value as he had in '06--but it's eating his BA this year. He'll bounce back some, but he's still basically Kevin Elster. And I liked Kevin Elster. (Joe Sheehan)
