  1. All well and good, but am I trading Ubaldo for David Wright? That’s the real question. I have a reasonably strong pitching staff (Caprenter, Hanson, Oswalt, Shields, Pelfry, Latos) and McGehee and Rolen at 3B.

    Much obliged.

  2. Latos or Richard going forth?

  3. Can you not fill another need? Sounds like you’ve got 3B well stocked already, unless you’re shifting McGehee to 2B. Can you not better fill a position of true weakness?

  4. If you can find someone impressed by Derek Lowe’s gaudy win totals by all means…sell like the Duke brothers as frozen concentrated orange juice futures plummeted.

  5. “But his fantasy value will fall when the AVG drops and unlike past years, Dunn will not prop it up with 40-HR power.”

    And how do you know this exactly? I agree his average will drop, but how do you know his power has suddenly disappeared? Guy goes from 40HR’s every year to 38 last year and now he’s finished? You wanna talk about disappearing HR totals over the years, look no further than your #1 “trade for” candidate Carlos Lee.

  7. Latos is the real deal and currently a shadow of his future self.

  8. I like Jackson but that ballpark in Arizona is just death to pitchers. Ben Sheets has given up way too many HR’s this year but most of his periphery stats look good. Floyd has been maddeningly inconsistent, but the guy is a known 2nd half pitcher. Myers won’t get wins, but everything else about him has been better than the other 3 so far this year… Its close but for me its between Myers and Floyd and if I had to choose I’d probably go Floyd.

  9. I wouldn’t consider Brett Myers in a million years. Fantasy baseball should be fun, and it’s not fun rooting for scumbags.

    As far as your question goes, is your league so deep that you have to marry one of them? Do you really need the extra starter? I’d spot-start those kind of guys if the matchup is favorable but otherwise I’d use that slot for relief help until a better option presents itself.

  10. I think that guy Strasburg looked kinda like a “buy” last night…

  11. Advice. In first place in a 10 team AL-only league with standard 5 pitching categories (WHIP, ERA, W, S, Ks)

    Currently have:

    Starters: Shields, Burnett, Lewis, Hochevar (and now Buerhle on the bench..though I should’ve held on to Masterson one more week)

    Releivers: Rivera, Rauch.

    Was offered Romero for Rauch. Take it? Stay as is? Go out and drop Buerhle for Masterson again (I know his peripherals are great, but he can’t get lefties out to save his life..other than tonight) All advice welcome.

  12. I’ve been trying to trade Rausch since I picked him up and he was named closer the next day. Unfortunately no one trades for closers in that league until the deadline.

    Little late to buy on Lilly. He’s done been back for a minute now!

    Who’s buying Lowe? I could have gotten him off of waivers last month and I passed. My pitching sucks mind you.

  13. If you did that, you’d be left with only one closer. Are you punting? I don’t believe in punting categories but if you’re going to, you may as well shop Rivera and see if you can’t do better than Romero.

  14. Neck Tat (Rauch) is tall.

  15. Hey, Dunn has now homered in three straight games! Thanks for the reverse jinx, he is on my fantasy team in a very competitive keeper league.

    Comment by batpig — June 10, 2010 @ 9:16 pm

  16. I’ve got him in an NL-only league so I’m definitely enjoying it, too!

  17. Trading Places, very nice.

    Comment by TFINY — June 16, 2010 @ 10:35 pm

  18. Hey, Dunn just hit ANOTHER homer today! that’s 6 HR’s in 9 games … thanks again for the reverse jinx! :-)

    BTW, (R)Zips has him projected at 36 HR coming into today…. so what was that again about his 40 HR power disappearing?
