It's not terribly difficult to predict what Jeromy Burnitz will do now that his home park is no longer Coors Field: He'll struggle. Burnitz has been an all or nothing hitter for years, but don't be fooled by last season's power surge. In home games, sir Jeromy batted .322 with 24 home runs. On the road, he hit .244 with 13 homers. If you hadn't noticed, Burnitz's 2004 road numbers pretty much match his career trend.
It's true that Wrigley Field is a nice place to hit, but it was middle of the pack for runs scored last year. As much as the wind blows out, it also blows in. Burnitz will play right field and hit sixth or seventh, and produce numbers befitting a fourth or fifth fantasy outfielder. In fact, look up the stats of the man he replaces; Sammy Sosa had 35 homers, 80 RBI and a .253 average. Burnitz might do exactly that.2005 Draft Kit
