The Untouted Gem

Last year we watched as Josh Willingham absolutely shredded pitchers from mid-May to mid-August, but most of the rest of the league saw him as a "flash-in-the-pan" who couldn't even bring decent prospects in return. Hell, even after the double slam game, few team kicked the tires.

Dave Cameron disagrees. Apparently if he was on the market, he should be one of the most sought out bats, as his statistical doppleganger is considered the best free agent bat on the market (we heard you the first time Mr. Boras).

Hey, I love the Hammer, and I love Alabama, but he should be in line to bump his salary upwards of 8M if he exceeds last season's performance. And it isn't like Willingham is comically bad defensively; his legs are too short and he doesn't play line drives as well as an Austin Kearns. He is just regular bad at defense.
